                    POSTDOCTORAL OR GRADUATE POSTS IN
     KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTATION & ONTOLOGIES FOR THE SEMANTIC WEB

                                  (Ref. no. 336/03)

One postdoctoral researcher and two graduate or postdoctoral
researchers are required in Manchester to join an international
research team working on tools and technologies for use in the
Semantic Web and E-Science Programme.

The CO-ODE project, an international collaboration between Stanford's
PROTÉGÉ team and Manchester and Southampton Universities' OWL and
CommonKADS ontology development teams, aims to harmonise two Knowledge
Representation paradigms: frames and description logics. HyOntUse, a
separate project, will build on CO-ODE's harmonised platform to
produce a robust end-user ontology authoring environment that will be
a key part of the UK and international Semantic Web infrastructure,
particularly for biomedicine.

CO-ODE: we are looking for two graduate or postdoctoral candidates
with experience of all stages of software development, from
requirements analysis through specification, build, test and
document. You should be a fast learner, as comfortable working with
poorly specified problems as with those that are very well understood
but highly complex.

HyOntUse: one postdoctoral candidate, or a graduate with suitable
experience in lieu of a PhD, is required.  You should be capable of
innovative research in a new area and of carrying it through to
practical software.

All applicants should have strong skills in software engineering and
Java programming with a background which includes knowledge
representation, object oriented design, and/or HCI and tool
development.  Working familiarity with web technologies (XML, XSLT,
XML Schema, RDF, etc.) is highly desirable. The ability to work in a
team and be sensitive to the controversies that inevitably arise in
collaborations is essential. Knowledge of the biomedical domain would
be an advantage but is not required.  For further information please
see http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/

All posts are tenable immediately. The CO-ODE posts are for two years
in the first instance, the HyOntUse post for three years.  Starting
salary in the range: £25451 to £30660 per annum.

Additional PhD studentships are available in related areas. See
