Applications are invited for a research associate post within a project 
on integrating partial and incomplete information in scientific 
applications.  The primary application areas will be 
 - the monitoring of computational Grids used  in high energy physics
   (see http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/~ceeawc/dis4g)  
 - the integration of astronomy data 
   (see http://www.roe.ac.uk/wfau/ag).  
The project is funded by the UK  e-Science programme. 

The successful applicant will join the research group on Grid
Information Systems at Heriot-Watt University.  Heriot-Watt is a
technical university located at the outskirts of Edinburgh.  The 
research approach of the group is to develop systems for real
applications and, at the same time, to base those systems on thorough
theoretical foundations.  Hence, we seek candidates with capabilities
and interests in one or more of: query languages, query processing,
computational logic, distributed computing, and middleware. Applicants
should hold an MSc or an equivalent degree in Computer Science or in a
closely related field.

The contract will be for 30 months duration and is available from 1st
October 2003.  The salary will be approximately £20,000 per annum.  An
extension will depend on the availability of further funding.  The
candidate will be expected to work towards a PhD degree.   

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, references and (optionally) 
copies of publications to: Dr Werner Nutt, School of Mathematical and 
Computer Sciences, Heriot-Watt University, Riccarton, Edinburgh EH14 4AS, 
United Kingdom, or by email to: nutt at macs.hw.ac.uk.  
Informal enquiries are welcome and may be directed to the same address.
Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
