Job description:

KIT is one of the world’s leading research institutions in the field of technology. The Web Science research group at the KIT Institute AIFB is known worldwide for its research in the field of knowledge representation and, under the direction of Dr. Färber, deals with data science topics. The research group’s focus is on the development and application of artificial intelligence (AI) methods. The core topics include natural language processing (e.g., information extraction), the semantic representation of knowledge through knowledge graphs, machine learning (e.g. for search and recommender systems), and the combination of these topics.

The research group works closely with the Information Process Engineering (IPE) research division of the FZI Research Center for Computer Science (FZI). There are also numerous connections to national and international research institutions and companies. An excellent infrastructure with servers and high-performance computers (e.g. HoreKa, one of the 15 fastest computers in Europe) is available for research.

Your tasks:

  • Performing research in at least one of the following areas: natural language understanding/natural language processing, knowledge graphs, machine learning.

  • Contributing to national and international research projects, often with industry partners.

  • Participation in teaching (e.g., organizing seminars and exercises for lectures in English, as well as for German if applicable).

  • Presentation of research results and prototypes in the context of publications and talks at national and international level.

The opportunity for a doctorate is given.

This research center is part of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers. With more than 42,000 employees and an annual budget of over € 5 billion, the Helmholtz Association is Germany's largest scientific organisation.
