Sorry if you receive this call several times.

We extended the deadline for application: now *30th of May*.

PhD studentship on French national project OpenSensingCity

École des Mines de Saint-Étienne, France is seeking a talented student 
in order to work on ANR-funded project OpenSensingCity. The project aims 
at fostering the usage of real time open data in the context of smart 
cities by providing operating tools helping application developpers to 
take advantage of open data streams as easily as possible.

The student will work on an information model for smart city data 
streams that involves the construction of an ontology. The student will 
also work on the definition of a query language that supports high level 
operations that are typical to the needs of smart city applications, 
such as aquiring data according to a postal address or type of amenities.

To this aim, we expect a student that has a master degree in computer 
science with knowledge in the field of semantic web and linked data. 
Additionally, familiarity with query languages, data management, stream 
processing, logics and knowledge representation are all desirable 
assets. The student should be confortable with formal approaches but 
also capable of implementing their contribution.

The studentship is contracted with ARMINES and the net salary (after 
taxes) is about €1670. The student will be part of a research team in 
Laboratoire Hubert Curien [1], a multi-site laboratory in Saint-Étienne, 
and Institut Henri Fayol [2], a multi-disciplinary center of École des 
Mines de Saint-Étienne. Our research group is working on open, 
distributed, cooperative systems, such as the Web and the Semantic Web, 
multi-agent systems, or virtual communities.

Applications should be sent to Antoine Zimmermnann and Olivier Boissier 
(see addresses below) with a CV, a letter of motivation, university 
transcripts and optionally recommendation letters before the *30th of May*.
