The FoX research program is to study the fundamental issues raised by distributed XML repositories. Topics range from modeling and reasoning issues, querying and extracting data, verifying critical properties of distributed XML repositories and learning. This reserach will include theoretical investigations as well as prototypical implementation of tools.

Candidates should have a very good background in (as many as possible of) semistructured data, XML, logic, automata, and complexity.

Within this project two post-doc positions are currently available: one in Dortmund and one in Paris. The position in Dortmund can also be given to a PhD student.

Interested applicants should contact Thomas Schwentick for Dortmund's position () or Luc Segoufin for Paris' position ().
