The department of "Knowledge Management" in Siemens Corporate Technology is looking for a PhD student for R&D activities in a government-funded research project.

Moreover, very good programming skills, especially in Java, are required as well as experience with established Semantic Web tools, such as Jena, Sesame, Protégé, or Pellet. The research activities are carried out within a national research project. Therefore the German language skills are necessary. 


The position will be primarily located in Munich-Neuperlach. The scientific supervision of the dissertation will be carried out in the Ubiquitous Knowledge Processing Group (Telecooperation/Computer Science) of the Technical University of Darmstadt, see http://www.ukp.tu-darmstadt.de/.
