Doctoral and postdoctoral research positions in contstraint programming

Location: Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium
Declarative Languages and Artificial Intelligence Group
Department of Computer Science
Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium

The Declarative Languages and Artificial Intelligence Group at the Catholic University of Leuven is urgently looking for doctoral and postdoctoral research candidates in the area of Constraint Programming.

Both positions concern the application and development of Constraint Programming techniques, and the Monadic Constraint Programming framework in particular, for solving problems of industrial scale. Close collaboration with our industrial partners is expected, and involves aspects of mutual interest, modeling, search heuristics and parallelization among others. More information on the Monadic Constraint Programming can be found at http://www.cs.kuleuven.be/~toms/MCP/.

For the postdoctoral position, applicants should have a Ph.D. in Computer Science and for the doctoral position, a masters degree in Computer Science or equivalent. A background and interest in Constraint Programming is essential. Experience in functional programming (Haskell), Gecode, software engineering and implementation are important assets.

Appointment to the postdoctoral position will be for the period of up to two years. Appointment to the doctoral position will be for the period of one year initially with possibility for extension to four years ending in a Ph.D. The salary is compatible with the departmental rates for postdoctoral and doctoral research fellows, and can take experience into consideration.

Please direct inquiries and applications, preferably by e-mail, to.
