PhD student position on theoretical aspects of XML, Edinburgh (Scotland)

A fully funded PhD position is available in the Database Group, Laboratory for Foundations of Computer Science, at the University of Edinburgh. The start date is 1 September 2010.

The projects of the group are centered around theoretical aspects of XML. However, prior knowledge of XML is *not* a requirement - XML is easy to learn (think of trees). It is essential that the candidate possess strong theoretical skills, especially in logic, automata, complexity, algorithms.

For samples of recent group publications, please see my webpage or webpages of current and recent group members: Claire David, Tony Tan, Anthony Widjaja To, Juan Reutter, Shunichi Amano, Filip Murlak, Cristina Sirangelo.

The position is for 3 years. It provides a standard fellowship, as well as travel funds. The successful candidate will be affiliated with both the database group and LFCS.

If you have any questions, or are interested in applying, please email me.
