The Multimedia Information Systems Group (http://www.cs.univie.ac.at/ 
mis) at the University of Vienna / Austria is looking for an excellent

The objective of EuropeanaConnect (http://www.europeanaconnect.eu/) is  
to deliver core components which are essential for the realization of  
the European Digital Library (Europeana) as a truly interoperable,  
multilingual and user-oriented service for all European citizens. The  
project will provide the  technologies and resources to semantically  
enrich vast amounts of digital content in Europeana. This will enable  
semantically based content discovery including support for advanced  
searching and browsing, allowing for delivery of enhanced services and  
making Europeana content more accessible, reusable and exploitable.

We expect the applicant to work in the following areas:
- Web-based knowledge organization systems (e.g., Linked Data)
- metadata registries
- persistent digital object identifiers
- multimedia annotations

The ideal candidate holds a MS degree in Computer Science or related  
field and is able to consider both theoretical and practical/ 
implementation aspects in her/his work. Fluent english communication  
and programming skills are fundamental requirements. Preferably the  
candidate has a background in one of the following fields:
- semantic technologies (RDF, SKOS, etc)
- metadata management
- multimedia computing

The position starts as soon as possible and is full-time (40h/week)  
for the duration of the project until Oct 2011.

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until  
the position is filled. The successful candidate will tightly work  
with international partners and has the possibility to pursue PhD work  
within the scope of the project.

We invite interested applicants to send their resume including a   
pointer to their previous / current work and publications to <sekretariat@mminf.univie.ac.at 
 >, Reference No: 396/MIS/0109.

The University of Vienna is an Equal Opportunities Employer. Women

favor  according to judgments of the EU Court of Justice.
