We have a post doctoral opportunity for a Research Fellow to work on an EU funded project being run by the Aston CRISIS Centre (http://www.astoncrisis.com).

The position involves contributing to the research on a project called Disaster 2.0 which concerns the application of Web 2.0 and Semantic Web technologies to disaster management and emergency response scenarios in the EU. Responsibilities concern the technological aspects of the project including assessing the current relevance and applicability of Semantic technologies to emergency management and disaster relief, developing a new ontology or integrate existing ontologies for this purpose, and designing prototype semantic applications for this type of scenario.

Applicants should have completed or submitted a PhD in Computer Science together with a good first degree. They should be able to demonstrate strong programming experience (preferably in Java, Python, or PHP), knowledge and experience of Semantic Web and Linked Data technologies. An interest or experience of disaster management and similar scenarios is a plus. The work will require a creative and independent mind able to take advantage of unique interdisciplinary environment. For informal enquiries, please contact Dr. Christopher Brewster (c.a.brewster@aston.ac.uk).
