The Smarter Cities Technology Centre (SCTC) at IBM's Dublin Research 
Laboratory, Ireland is accepting applications for full-time researchers 
from entry-level through principal investigators - 
http://www.ibm.com/ie/nowhiring/index.html -. 

1) Researcher - Social Semantic Web

We are researching novel ways to enable citizens, services, and service 
providers to interact coherently in a smarter city. We are creating and 
leveraging Social Media and Web 2.0 software tools that help to capture, 
organize and benefit from the wealth of city data being generated by urban 
and environmental sensors, including citizen-contributed data. We are 
looking for researchers with strong expertise in the areas of:
- Social Media and Web 2.0, preferably with geospatial application
- Capturing, representing, exploiting social media and crowd-sourced 
information
- Enabling users and developers to easily leverage linked open data as an 
information source
- Collaborative, end-user-driven knowledge enrichment


2) Research Scientist - Knowledge Representation and Reasoning

We are researching novel representations and algorithms to enable decision 
makers to exploit urban and environmental data and information and linked 
open data. We are creating efficient representations to express and reason 
about spatial and temporal concepts, tools for to automate knowledge 
acquisition from people and repositories, and systems for large scale 
knowledge management. Relevant areas include: 
- Knowledge modelling, 
- Representation, inference and reasoning systems
- Implementation and optimisation of knowledge acquisition systems and 
applications
- Representation & reasoning on spatio-temporal data

3) Researcher - Distributed Information Systems

We are researching novel data and information management algorithms and 
systems for very large scale, federated (e.g., linked open data), and 
continuously evolving data and knowledge repositories. We are creating 
distributed information systems required to model, manage, and manipulate 
the massive amounts of data generated to plan, monitor and intelligently 
control urban infrastructures and protect our environment. We are looking 
for researchers with strong expertise in the areas of:
- Scalable data management for spatial, temporal, and semantic data 
streaming and stored
- Efficient representations and extensible interfaces for city-scale 
repositories and linked open data to enable offline and real-time analytic 
workload
- Automatic and semi-automatic creation, extension, and mapping of 
semantic and data models 
- Automatic and semi-automatic assessment of context, provenance, and 
trustworthiness of data, especially in large, dynamic, federated systems

4) Research Scientist - Machine Learning / Data Mining / Learning Systems

We are hiring researchers in machine learning , data mining, statistical 
analysis, predictive modeling, and learning systems. We are especially 
interested in candidates with strong background and experience in dealing 
with data, control, or planning of urban or environmental systems such as 
transportation and mobility services, sustainable energy (smart grid, 
renewable energy, intelligent buildings), and water management. Projects 
will involve identifying applications of data-intensive machine learning, 
invention of effective algorithms for these applications, and 
incorporation of these algorithms in distributed and parallel software 
systems.

5) Research Scientist - HCI with emphasis on Geospatial

We are hiring researchers in human computer interaction for geospatial 
analysis, spatio-temporal statistical modelling, geocomputation, and 
associated visualisation. The successful candidate will develop algorithms 
and interfaces that enable integration of geospatial information into 
urban and environmental systems, including transportation and mobility 
services, sustainable energy (smart grid, renewable energy, intelligent 
buildings), and water management. Projects will include geographic data 
mining and knowledge discovery, multi-scale spatio-temporal analysis, and 
development of analytic and visualisation tools to support exploring, 
understanding and communicating geospatial information, and incorporation 
of resulting analytics in distributed and parallel software systems.

6) Research Scientist - Intelligent Transportation Systems

We are hiring researchers in transportation science, e.g., transportation 
modelling, data analysis, visualisation, simulation, and control. The 
successful candidate will develop analytics and algorithms for intelligent 
transportation systems. Projects will involve data analysis for 
large-scale, distributed transportation networks; integration of 
multi-modal transportation data sources; optimisation, control and 
decision services for both public services and citizen consumption; and 
incorporation of results in distributed and parallel software systems.

7) Research Scientist - Robust Optimisation and Control

We are hiring researchers in statistical modelling, optimisation, and 
applied mathematics. The successful candidate will develop analytical 
models using large-scale and multi-dimensional data sets, with a focus on 
intelligent planning and control of urban and environmental systems, 
including intelligent management of constrained resources (e.g., water, 
energy), transportation and mobility services, and sustainable energy. 
Projects will involve identifying applications of data-intensive 
modelling, invention of suitable algorithms and models for these 
applications, integration of those with control strategies and 
incorporation of resulting analytics in distributed and parallel software 
systems.

8) Research Scientist - Sustainable Energy Analytics and Systems

We are hiring researchers in data analysis, modelling, simulation, 
visualisation, and intelligent control of energy systems. The successful 
candidate will develop analytics and algorithms for sustainable energy 
systems. Projects involve data analysis, simulation, optimisation, and 
control of energy systems, including techniques for managing stability of 
energy networks, smart grid, and intelligent buildings or campus 
management, and incorporation of results in software systems
