Three Research Fellowships in Semantic Web Technologies

The Open University's Knowledge Media Institute (KMi) has three 
openings for Research Fellows to undertake the design and development 
of semantic web technologies within the AKT 
(http://kmi.open.ac.uk/projects/akt/) and Dot.Kom projects 

The jobs will involve i) integrating web based knowledge and language 
technologies to support knowledge management processes; ii) the 
development of an infrastructure to support publication, discovery 
and brokering of semantic web services; and iii) the development of 
novel query answering facilities, which integrate ontology-based 
reasoning with lexical resources, logical query answering, and 
information retrieval.

Experience in web and knowledge technologies is essential for these 
vacancies. Knowledge of language technologies would also be useful.

The 2-3 Year appointments will be made on the Research Staff scale 
Grade 1A 18,265 - 27,339  or Research Staff scale Grade 2B 25,451 
- 33,679, pa depending on qualifications and experience. Appointment 
as a Research Fellow requires a PhD or three years equivalent in 
quality of achievement.

The Knowledge Media Institute is a highly successful 70-strong 
interdisciplinary research laboratory founded at the Open University 
in 1995, and located in attractive new offices at the Open 
University's main campus in Milton Keynes, UK. KMi undertakes 
high-profile advanced research and development in Knowledge Media: a 
convergence of knowledge, communication and computing technologies. 
We offer a stimulating environment, widely acknowledged to be at the
