Subject: [Wikidata] Fully funded PhD positions at TU Dresden
To: Discussion list for the Wikidata project. <>

Dear Wikidatans,

We are currently looking to fill two 100%-funded researcher positions in
the field of knowledge representation, AI, and data analysis. This might
be of interest to some of you, or to someone you know:

Applicants should have (or be about to finish) a very good MSc degree or
equivalent in computer science or a related field (esp. mathematics).
Knowledge of Wikidata and related technologies is a plus but not a
requirement. Postdocs can also apply if their research is related to the

Our research group is international, with English as the main language
in everyday work. The positions are part of a major collaborative
research project that aims at improving human understanding of software
systems, and which is starting just now; see  We aim to further increase
the share of female researchers in our team, so we'd like to encourage
women to apply [1].

I am happy to answer informal questions by email. The application
deadline is quite soon but it can (and probably will) be extended until
the positions are filled. Please feel free to forward this to anyone you
know who might be interested.



[1] All other genders, including men, are welcome too.
