-----------------------------------------------------------------------

One fully-funded PhD position is available in the e-Research Group,
School of ITEE, The University of Queensland, in Semantic Web and Text
Mining on the ARC-funded project: Knowledge in Time.

The Environment
---------------
The University of Queensland (UQ) has a strong internationally focused
research culture, and is currently ranked in the top 1% of world
universities in three international University ranking systems. UQ is
building a cluster of international-quality research centres and
institutes that will keep it at the frontier of emerging research fields.
The project associated with the PhD position will be conducted in UQs
e-Research Group, School of ITEE, which has an international reputation for
high quality and innovative research in scientific data management and the
application of Semantic Web technologies to process very large data
collections. The e-Research Group has access to a wide range of advanced
computing, data storage and visualization facilities, as well as a pool
of software engineers with expertise in scientific and environmental data
management.

Project Description
-------------------
The 'Knowledge in Time' project aims to develop a semantic representation
for the core statements present in scientific publications, together with
innovative extraction and retrieval mechanisms in order to create
claim-evidence networks and detect paradigm shifts.

Potential topics include:
* Development of a model for the semantics of the core statements present
  in scientific publications
* Research and implementation of novel extraction and clustering algorithms
* Development of a dynamic knowledge base to enable temporal and
argumentative
  data exploration

Criteria
--------
Applicants must possess an academic qualification equivalent to a good
second-class upper or first-class honours degree (or equivalent) or Masters
in Computer Science, Information Technology or a related discipline.
The successful applicant should have a strong desire to develop a successful
and highly productive research career and possess good communication skills
in English, written as well as oral. Good implementation skills (preferably
Java) are also compulsory. Knowledge in Semantic Web and Text Mining is
considered a plus.

Application
-----------
Your application should comprise the following documents:
* Curriculum vitae
* Statement of purpose - a short statement about your research interests
  and your reasons for applying
* Certificates and transcripts reflecting courses taken and grades achieved

Closing date
-------------
- 31 January 2012 (or until the position is filled)
