Background 
The CLRC is the UK's leading multidisciplinary science laboratory, providing
facilities and services to the UK science community. The Information Science
and Engineering Group within the Business and Information Technology
Department offers research and development expertise in the science and
engineering of high quality information and software systems. It has active
research projects in web technologies including XML and the Semantic Web,
information modelling and knowledge management and software engineering
including OO and formal methods. CLRC also hosts the UK Office of the World
Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and is the UK member of the European Research
Consortium in Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM).
BITD has recently been awarded five new EU funded Research projects and is
looking for three Research Associates to join an established research and
development team. The new projects are on: 
*	Semantic Web Advanced Development for Europe 
*	Grid architecture for Application Service Provision 
*	An Agent Based Platform for Organisationally Mobile Public Employees

*	Trust Management in Dynamic Open Systems 
*	E-Learning within a Grid environment 
 Duties
The main duties of these Research Associate posts would include: 
*	Undertaking Research and Technology Development on EU funded
projects 
*	Liasing with project partners, attending project meetings,
contributing to project deliverables 
*	Dissemination of results of research through academic publications
in journals and conferences 
 Qualification and experience
Successful candidates will have a good first degree and preferably a
postgraduate qualification in Computer Science or a related subject, or
equivalent relevant experience. A proven ability to undertake research and
experience in one of the topics of the new projects would be advantageous.
Knowledge of the following topics would also be an advantage: 
*	Ontologies and metadata, Knowledge representation technologies (eg
RDF, DAML+OIL ) 
*	Web service technologies (eg WSDL,UDDI, SOAP, P3P ) and Grid
architectures 
*	Knowledge management based on Software Agents, knowledge bases,
databases, document repositories, and adaptable user interfaces 
*	Modelling Trust as a means of establishing security and confidence
in the global computing infrastructure, introducing trust management into
existing and emerging technologies, regulatory and legislative frameworks 
Training will be available to develop skills as appropriate, in accordance
with CLRC's commitment to the Investors in People scheme.
