The Reasoning and Querying Unit at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI) of the National University of Ireland, Galway invites applications for a Research Assistant, Masters or PhD fellowship position in the area of Semantic Web technologies for Content Management Systems.
DERI, a leading research institute in semantic technologies, offers a stimulating, dynamic and multi-cultural research environment, excellent ties to research-groups worldwide and close collaboration with industrial partners.
The open fellowship is tailored to deploy Semantic Web technologies at large scale in widely used Open Source Content Management Systems and is funded by Science Foundation Ireland. The position offers for the successful candidate an annual stipend, course fees and conference travel when presenting. The DERI Unit for Reasoning and Querying focuses on improving the scalability and investigating the adequacy of traditional reasoning and query answering techniques for the Web, where several classical assumptions no longer hold as data is heterogeneous, distributed, possibly incomplete or contradictory, structured in different levels of granularity, varying in levels of trust and accessible only by following implicit or explicit security policies. Research is performed in collaboration with other DERI units and industrial partners.
Please submit your application (including cover letter outlining suitability, a brief outline of your preferred methodology, full CV and contact details for three referees) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line 'Post-graduate fellowship in Semantic Web Technologies for Content Management Systems', by 5 pm on Friday, July 10th 2009.
