Applications are invited for one PhD position in the frame of the 
project "SToUT: Symbolic Computation Techniques for Unranked Terms" 
funded by the FWF (Austrian Science Fund).

The focus of the PhD project will be on designing new algorithms and 
procedures for solving equational constraints and anti-unification 
problems over unranked terms in various theories and on developing the 
corresponding software library. The successful applicant is expected to 
conduct research leading to original contributions to the project 
culminating in a PhD thesis.

Requirements for applicants:

   * University degree in computer science or mathematics
   * Strong interest and commitment to research
   * Competency in English
   * Good programming skills
   * Preferably, knowledge of logic

Interested candidates should submit their application to the project 
leader Temur Kutsia not later than March 31, 2012, preferably by email:
