The Web Information Systems (WIS) group in TU Delft (Delft University
of Technology, the Netherlands) has a PhD position available in
Semantic Search, Linked Data and Adaptive Web, funded in a
collaboration with Dutch cultural heritage partners.

The WIS group concentrates in its research on large-scale information
systems, specifically information systems that involve Web and
Semantic Web technology. Main topics in the group's research
activities are:

- engineering and science of the adaptive web, including user modeling
  and personalization,
- semantic search and retrieval,
- semantic integration and linked data.

Candidates should have a master degree in computer science or related
disciplines. Knowledge of Web and Semantic Web languages and tools is
a plus, as is knowledge of search and retrieval techniques. To be able
to work in this international group candidates should have good
communicative skills in English, both in speaking and in writing. For
this particular position, the candidate should be able to work with
data in Dutch, and therefore we demand that a candidate is able to
read Dutch or a closely related language. We are looking for a
candidate with good programming skills as well as good conceptual
modeling skills.

Successful candidates will work in collaboration with prominent
cultural heritage institutes as well as with companies that offer
state-of-the-art search and retrieval solutions. We offer the chance
to perform high-quality and cutting-edge research in an international
environment, while working in close collaboration with the members of
the WIS group at TU Delft. The fully funded PhD position is available
for a period of four years. Candidates should be able to start in the
spring of 2011.

Candidates can express their interest by sending an email with a CV
(indicating their language skills) and a motivation letter to
prof.dr.ir. Geert-Jan Houben at wis@ewi.tudelft.nl (mentioning the
subject "PhD2011-1"). At this moment there is no need to send other
files or documents. Emails that do not meet these requirements will
not be processed. More information about the group can be found at
wis.ewi.tudelft.nl. The deadline for applications is January 22nd
2011, but applications will be processed as they are received.
