Message-ID: <f032cc060811111739o544e0806ga30d2fd63258acfc@mail.gmail.com>
To: "public-esw-thes@w3.org" <public-esw-thes@w3.org>

Here are two SKOS related jobs that I'm forwarding on behalf of Jane
Greenberg at unc.edu.




The Dryad project has 2 new positions--a data repository programmer,
and HIVE programmer to work with SKOS. The HIVE post may be of
particular interest to SKOS folks. Applicants should know that they
"do not" necessarily need to relocate to join our team.

Please see below; url at the end links to more detailed information.

Feel free to forward.

best wishes, jane


The Dryad Data Repository (http://datadryad.org) has two open
programming positions located in central North Carolina: (1) a general
repository programmer and (2) a programmer focused on enhancing
metadata records with controlled vocabulary terms. Dryad stores data
underlying scientific publications from evolutionary biology and
related fields. Dryad is being developed by the National Evolutionary
Synthesis Center (NESCent) and the Metadata Research Center (MRC) at
the University of North Carolina in coordination with several
scientific journals and societies.

(1) The Dryad Repository Programmer will support general repository
development activities, enhancing systems for preserving, searching,
and distributing scientific data. This position is funded for 3 years,
with possibility for extension. It will be located at NESCent.

(2) The Dryad/HIVE Programmer will apply the SKOS standard to improve
the Dryad cataloging system, developing software to select and manage
terms from multiple controlled vocabularies and ontologies. This
position is funded for 21 months, with possibility for extension. It
will be located at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Both positions will remain open until filled. Applications will be
reviewed starting on December 7th. Full position descriptions can be
found at http://www.nescent.org/about/employment.php
