PolicyGrid (http://www.policygrid.org) is one of the UK National Centre 
for eSocial Science (NCeSS) research nodes. The
Node's research agenda is focused on assisting the social science 
community to exploit the full potential of emerging Semantic Web
technologies and standards in the Grid context. The Node brings computer 
scientists and social scientists together to focus on the challenges of
using Semantic Grid technologies to enable more powerful analysis of 
mixed-method data (e.g. surveys and interviews, case studies,
simulations) thus adding significant value to the work of social 
scientists engaged in the creation and analysis of evidence bases for
policy development and evaluation.

The post holder will be part of a larger team and will focus on the 
development of semantic grid infrastructure and lightweight metadata
(ontology + folksonomy) support for a range of activities including 
social simulation models, and support for policy argumentation. You will
also be expected to contribute to the research agenda for the Node, and 
your role will involve liaison with the National Centre for eSocial
Science (NCeSS) located at the University of Manchester.

You should have a PhD in Computer Science or a related discipline. You 
are expected to be a highly competent programmer in Java, and have
experience of Semantic Web technologies (including OWL and RDF). 
Knowledge of e-science and Web/Grid service technologies would be
desirable. The work will involve conceptual/theoretical work, and also 
implementation of demonstrable system software.

The post is being offered for 30 months on a full time basis and is 
tenable from 1 September 2006.

Closing Date for Applications : 22-Aug-2006
