Post-doctoral Fellowship in Reasoning and Querying for the Semantic Web
DERI, National University of Ireland, Galway
The Reasoning and Querying Unit [1] at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI) of the National University of Ireland, Galway invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in the are of Reasoning and Querying for the Semantic Web.
DERI, a leading research institute in semantic technologies, offers a stimulating, dynamic and multi-cultural research environment, excellent ties to research-groups worldwide and close collaboration with industrial partners. DERI's Unit for Reasoning and Querying focuses on improving the scalability and  investigating the adequacy of traditional reasoning and query answering techniques for the Web, where several classical assumptions no longer hold as data is heterogeneous, distributed, possibly incomplete or contradictory, structured in different levels of granularity, varying in levels of trust and accessible only by following implicit or explicit security policies. Research is performed in collaboration with other DERI units and industrial partners.

The Candidate

Applicants should hold a PhD degree in a relevant discipline with a strong theoretical background and an excellent proven research record; industrial project experience being distinct advantage. We are looking for both experienced candidates and candidates who just finished their PhD, salaries will be determined based on experience, cf. [2] for salary scales.

We expect:

* a solid background and proven excellent research record in fields including (but not limited to) database theory, distributed databases, data integration, (deductive) reasoning, semi-structured data and XML technologies,policies and trust, Semantic Web languages and applications, knowledge representation, Web Services technologies
*  willingness to engage in proposals to secure future funding
*  a proactive attitude towards solving problems, and the ability to work in teams and guide younger researchers
For more information about the research conducted in our group, please refer to [1]. Note that we strictly aim at broadening the expertise in our group, that is new/complementary areas of expertise are a distinct advantage.
