The research technology organisation Salzburg Research specializes in applied
research and development in the field of information and communication
technologies (ICT) and New Media. Regional as well as national and
international business partners benefit from the high-quality expertise our
team of interdisciplinary and globally renowned experts has to offer. The
Research Department *Knowledge and Media Technologies* (KMT) is looking for

                          Junior/Senior Researchers
                         Linked Data and Multimedia

Your Tasks:
- design, implementation and evaluation of novel software solutions at the
  intersection of Semantic Web and Multimedia technologies
- presentation of research outcomes in articles and conference presentations
  in international journals and conferences
- participation in the development of innovative project ideas together with
  our research and industry partners

Your Profile:
- Master or PhD in Computer Science or a related field with a focus on 
  Semantic Web technologies and optionally Multimedia
- experience in software engineering (Web, Java EE) and with Semantic Web
- experience and interest in applied research projects

You will be working on international or national projects of the KMT group,
in particular the Salzburg NewMediaLab and its core technologies 
"Linked Media Framework" and "Apache Stanbol". You are motivated to undertake
challenging and interesting applied research and are fluent in English in both
written and spoken form. Knowledge of German is desirable but not required. You
are able to work independently and you can develop your own ideas, which you
later implement with dedication. You like working in a team and to solve 
difficult problems together.

We offer an interesting environment at the pulse of innovation where you can
participate in the design and implementation of new ideas. Our particular
strength is a high team spirit in a highly motivated international and 
interdisciplinary team. In the medium term you will take over the management
of projects. We will bring you in contact with national and international
partners from research and industry. Our working contracts are very flexible
and family friendly.

Even though Salzburg is not one of the world's capitals, it also has a lot to
offer. Besides the multitude of cultural events and locations, its location
in the Alps makes Salzburg a perfect place for all kinds of summer and winter
activities. Being in the heart of Europe, most European locations are 
reachable within a few hours.

In case you are interested, please send your applications (application letter
stating your research interest, CV possibly including publications) via email
to jobs@salzburgresearch.at referring to Sebastian Schaffert.
