computational logic. The QUINTON project is funded by EPSRC and is joint with
Dr. Milos Nikolic at University of Edinburgh. You will work in close
collaboration with our industrial partners, and other members of the team. The
position could also include work on query reformulation, related to and funded
by the PDQ project, if applicable to the skills of the candidate. We will
support your career development, through supporting your scientific work, and
also through attendance to conferences, student supervision and supporting
applications for personal fellowships, as appropriate.

Science or related area, together with relevant experience and have a proven
track record of publications. Researchers in computational logic or databases

candidates with potential but less experience who are seeking a development
opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at grade 6 (£30,502 -

you would be expected to hold a Masters in computer science, or related
discipline (or be close to completion). This would be discussed with
applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.
