The Programming Languages Group of Ghent University invites applicants for a PhD position. This position centers around the development of efficient rule-based programming systems and is part of our new project “Constraint Programming for advanced joins in rule-based programming languages”. The project is under the direction of Tom Schrijvers.
The successful applicant has a master degree in Computer Science or equivalent. Ideally, she/he will also have a strong, documented interest in doing research. Strong problem-solving and programming skills are essential. Prior knowledge of rule-based/query/logic/constraint programming languages and/or database theory is an advantage, but not required.
