Short-term Research Assistants in Semantic Web / Music Informatics

The Centre for Digital Music (C4DM) at Queen Mary University of London
seeks two research assistants to work on the project Linked Music
Metadata (LinkedBrainz.c4dmpresents.org), funded by JISC and involving
the MetaBrainz Foundation (musicbrainz.org) as partner. The objectives
of the project are to:
(1) Publish the MusicBrainz metadatabase directly as a Linked Data
resource on the semantic web;
(2) Link it to other music metadata on the semantic web;
(3) Create a semantic web query facility (SPARQL endpoint) for the
MusicBrainz data;
(4) Develop tutorial materials to explain and illustrate how the
content can be used;
(5) Engage the academic music and music informatics communities, and
the broader semantic web community, in the development and use of the
exposed content; and
(6) Investigate and report on scalability, provenance and
sustainability of the resource.

The roles involve software development, ontology design, documentation
and presentation of project outputs. The ideal applicant will have a
strong background of research and/or development for the semantic web,
knowledge of Music Informatics and in particularly the Music Ontology,
and a good command of written and oral English. For more details
please see the full ad and job profile at

The project is based in the Centre for Digital Music (C4DM) which is a
world-leading multidisciplinary research group in the field of Music &
Audio Technology. Details about the C4DM can be found at

The posts are full time (part time might be possible) for 3-6 months,
starting as soon as possible. Salary will be in the range 29552 -
33794 per annum inclusive of London Allowance. Candidates must be
able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance
with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required
this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under
