Several Open PhD Positions in the doctoral program on Logical Methods in Computer Science (LogiCS)

TU Wien, TU Graz, and JKU Linz are seeking highly qualified candidates for our joint doctoral program on Logical Methods in Computer Science (LogiCS). The PhD program focuses on interdisciplinary research topics covering

– computational logic, and applications of logic to
– databases and artificial intelligence,
– computer-aided verification,
– security and privacy,
– cyber-physical systems, as well as to
– distributed systems.

THE PROGRAM

Our PhD program LogiCS is focusing on logic and its applications in computer science. Successful applicants will work with and be mentored by leading researchers in the fields of computational logic, databases and knowledge representation, computer-aided verification, security and privacy, cyber-physical systems, and distributed systems.

FACULTY MEMBERS

M. Bartocci A. Biere R. Bloem A. Ciabattoni
T. Eiter G. Gottlob R. Grosu L. Kovacs
M.Maffei M. Ortiz U. Schmid M.Seidl
S. Szeider G. Weissenbacher S.Woltran

The LogiCS faculty comprises 15 renowned researchers with strong records in research, teaching and advising, complemented by 15 associated members who further strengthen the research and teaching activities of the college. Details are provided here.

POSITIONS AND FUNDING

  • We are looking for 11 very strong doctoral students.
  • The doctoral positions are funded for at least 3 years according to the funding scheme of the Austrian Science Fund
