Postdoc position at Aalborg University

A fully funded postdoctoral position is available at the Center for
Data-intensive Systems (, Department of Computer
Science at Aalborg University (AAU), Denmark. The position is available
for start over the summer/fall of 2016.

More and more data is published on the Web as RDF or Linked Open Data.
Available datasets are naturally distributed, highly heterogeneous, and
constantly changing. In this context it is not only challenging to

We are looking for a talented and motivated postdoc whose work will help
overcome these challenges and enable efficient and scalable query
processing over Web data.

The position is embedded in the QWeb project (funded by the Danish
Council for Independent Research) aiming at providing efficient
solutions for querying Web data.

Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. in computer science and an
excellent scientific background and publication record within Semantic
Web technologies, in particular Linked Data and SPARQL query processing.
Experiences with big data technologies, data integration, information
retrieval, and machine learning are an advantage. Good communication
skills in English, oral as well as written, are essential.

The position is initially available for 12 months with the possibility
of extension based on mutual agreement. The annual salary is
approximately DKK 450.000 (ca. EUR 60,000, inclusive of pension
contributions and pre taxes).
