[DMANET] Open positions in the Links research team

The Links project (at Inria Lille and the CRIStAL lab) is working on
foundations and applications for querying Web databases based
on logics and automata. Links' general objective is to develop
novel techniques for querying heterogeneous collections of linked
Web databases as if they were integrated into a single homogeneous
database. Beside other challenges, this requires to develop novel
algorithms that enable the management of dynamic networks of
linked and distributed data in a real time.

Links is regularly opening research positions on different
levels, offered by Inria, CNRS, the University of Lile 1,
and the University of Lille 3.

- Permanent researcher positions at Inria or CNRS for excellent

application deadlines are mid of February.

- Professor position at the University of Lille 1. One position
that targets towards Links' research topics is currently open. The
submission deadline is begin of March (beware, deadline is earlier
