The Database Group at the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh, is recruiting a post-doctoral researcher. The position is open to database researchers with a promising publication record who have a PhD, or are close to completing their PhD, in computer science or closely related field. A strong background in databases, machine learning, and theoretical computer science (particularly algorithms, complexity theory, and logic), as well as skills in systems aspects of databases and systems building experience, are particularly valuable.

The post is in connection with the EPSRC grant "EQUID: Efficient Querying of Inconsistent Data" whose vision is to propose a practically applicable approach to the problem of querying inconsistent data based on efficient approximation algorithms that quickly deliver sufficiently good consistent answers.

This full time position is available until 31 August 2022 (with a possibility of extension).

Informal enquiries should be directed to Andreas Pieris (

Closing date is 5pm on 9th October 2020.
