Department of Management Information Systems at The Poznan University of 
Economics, Poland is looking for a visiting scholar for a 4-months stay. 
The researcher will be funded by FP6 Marie Curie Host Fellowship for the 
Transfer of Knowledge under the project ENIRAF – Enhanced Information 
Retrieval and Filtering for Analytical Systems 
(http://eniraf.mis.ae.poznan.pl/). Focus of the research in this project 
is on ontologies, web services and the Semantic Web for information 

The goal of this four-month position is to exchange experience on 
merging of Semantic Web Technologies and Information Filtering 
Technologies, as well as developing some successful cases and 
inspirations for future work. Therefore, it would be advantageous if a 
candidate had prepared his or her dissertation on these two topics.
There are many different approaches to Semantic Web Information 
Retrieval and for the benefits of the project, we will not restrict 
ourselves to just one. These approaches should be systematized (into 
processes, stages, areas) and evaluated in the context of our current 
projects. The projects, which we are currently working on in our 
department, cover such areas as: information extraction, shallow text 
processing, spatial and temporal ontologies, and ontology evolution. In 
order to familiarize himself/herself with these projects, the successful 
candidate will work particularly closely with one of the teams, staying 
in touch with all other teams. The focus is on collaboration and 
transfer of knowledge, which includes preparation of workshops for 
faculty and lectures for students.
A successful candidate should be familiar with Semantic Web Technologies 
as she/he will be consulting and suggesting new ideas for projects. Some 
general framework is already in place and the ontology is still being 
developed. A refinement approach should be taken as this workpackage 
belongs to a series of “Ontologies for IRaF” workpackages.
The incoming researcher, together with the co-operating team, will 
prepare a publication in a recognized journal or at least a chapter in 
an edited book, to show the results of the project.

To be eligible for this action you have to be an experienced researcher. 
Experienced researchers are defined as researchers having at least 4 and 
no more than 10 years of research experience since gaining a university 
diploma or researchers already in possession of a doctoral degree.
