Postdoc and Junior-researcher Positions in Semantic Search, Linked Data, and Adaptive Web
The Web Information Systems group in TU Delft (Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands) concentrates in its research on large-scale information systems, specifically information systems that involve Web and Semantic Web technology. Main topics in the group’s research activities are:
– engineering and science of the adaptive web, including semantics-based adaptation and personalization,
– semantic search and retrieval,
– semantic integration and linked data.
The objective is the development of and experimentation with techniques for semantic search, creation and use of linked data, and adaptive web applications. Candidates should have a solid background in Computer Science or related disciplines and be interested in Web and Semantic Web technology. They should have good communicative skills in English, both in speaking and in writing, and candidates are expected to realize research ideas in terms of software tools. Applications are invited for Postdoc positions as well as Junior-researcher positions on one or more of the above topics. The group offers the chance to perform high-quality and cutting-edge research in an international environment. Successful candidates will work in European and/or national projects, in close collaboration with the members of the WIS group.
The position of postdoc is available for a period of 1 year with the possibility to extend, depending on the fit with specific projects. The postdoc candidate should have a relevant background and experience in the field, demonstrated by a PhD and publications, and is expected to help lead junior-researchers, PhD-students and MSc-students perform their research. Postdoc candidates will have the opportunity to perform independent research on the topics of the group, which qualifies them for an academic career and allows them to establish themselves as an independent researcher in the research community.
The position of junior-researcher is available for candidates with a relevante MSc-degree for a period of at least 6 months, preferably 1 year. The junior-researcher candidate should have a relevant background in research and software development, with an MSc in Computer Science or related disciplines, and is expected to assist in the group’s research mainly in tool development. Junior-researcher candidates will receive guidance and support in developing the necessary skills to produce high-quality research necessary to earn a PhD degree: depending on the performance and the fit with projects, a junior-researcher candidate could become a PhD-student in the group.
Candidates can express their interest by sending an email with a CV, a motivation letter indicating also the group’s topics they are most interested in, as well as copy of their MSc/PhD thesis (as pdf) to prof.dr.ir. Geert-Jan Houben at [email protected] (mentioning the subject “PositionsJune2010”. More information can be found at wis.ewi.tudelft.nl. The deadline for applications is July 10th, but applications will be processed as they are received.
