where?  -- Norman]

Research position: ontology and vocabulary mediation
[short term appointment, nine months]

Closing date: 18 January 2008 (soon!), to start as soon as possible.

Explicator is an EPSRC funded project, based at the University of  
Glasgow, developing techniques to provide intelligent access to  
foreign data models. The project began in July 2007 and will run  
until December 2008.

The Explicator project aims to develop a framework for giving data- 
reduction applications in Astronomy and Particle Physics access to  
multiple data sources.  These data sources typically use their own  
data models (which may be formalised as ontologies), which are only  
partially compatible with each other.

This short-duration project is now at its half-way point, having up  
to this point concentrated on formal vocabularies within Astronomy,  
and is now seeking to apply this work to the distinct but related  
problems in Particle Physics.

The project is particularly keen to recruit people with experience of  
semantic technologies, or experience of HEP data handling.
