                            CALL FOR POSITIONS
INTERNSHIP + PhD PROGRAM
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------
We are looking for top students who have, or will soon have, a degree in
computer 
science or strongly related areas. These students should be interested in
pursuing 
their career by doing a PhD within a leading, internationally recognized,
group. 
The candidates will be required to start with an internship period of 6-8
months 
during which they will have to complete the first assignment. Successful
candidates 
will be invited to apply for the PhD program in information and
telecommunication 
technology at the University of Trento (http://ict.unitn.it
<http://ict.unitn.it/> ) and to work on 
a leading edge research topic.
 
The first assignment and the PhD topic will be both within the scope of the 
KnowDive project (http://dit.unitn.it/~knowdive). The project aims at
creating
new technologies and tools for managing (personal) knowledge and for its
seamless
integration into the global infrastructure of the emerging Web 2.0. Some key
phrases 
which characterize the project are: (Semantic) Web, faceted metadata search
and 
navigation, semantic matching, classifications and thesauri, lightweight
ontologies, 
peer-to-peer systems, social networks.
 
Candidates should have profound Java programming experience, good knowledge
of 
database technology, web technologies and languages (e.g., HTTP, (D)HTML, 
JavaScript, AJAX, XUL). Knowledge in one (or several) of the following areas
is a plus:
 
- OWL, RDF, XML, SKOS;
- Faceted metadata search and navigation;
- Document indexing and keywords-based search  technology (e.g., Lucene);
- Web browser development (Firefox development is a plus);
- Peer-to-peer technology (e.g., JXTA);
- Content management  systems;
- Security in distributed content management systems;
- Wordnet;
- Usability studies and practical experience with solving usability-related
problems;
- Natural language processing techniques;
- Named entity recognition techniques;
- Text mining techniques.
 
Salaries are competitive.
