Post-graduate fellowship in Semantic Web technologies for Content 
Management Systems
DERI, National University of Ireland, Galway

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 

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.

Applicants should hold an excellent primary degree in a relevant 
discipline with industrial project experience, such as active website 
development with Content Management Systems being a distinct advantage. 
Applicants should have a strong interest in the area of Linked Data with 
an understanding of its application and use. Applicants must have a 
background in concrete CMS systems such as for instance Drupal, Joomla!, 
Typo3, Plone, etc.; any knowledge about other CMSs is a bonus, 
programming skills in Java or scripting languages such as PHP, 
JavaScript is desirable. Applicants must be highly motivated with the 
ability for independent and critical thought. Successful applicants are 
expected to combine scientific work with application-oriented research 
and development in collaborative projects funded by national and 
European funding agencies.

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 hr@deri.org with the subject line 
'Post-graduate fellowship in Semantic Web Technologies for Content 
Management Systems', by 5 pm on Friday, July 10th 2009.
