Digital Economy is an RCUK cross-council programme, aimed at realising the

economy. The dot.rural Digital Economy Hub at the University of Aberdeen is
one of three large multi-disciplinary research hubs funded through this
programme, and commenced its activities in October 2009.
The Hub award to Aberdeen is worth £11.8M and will fund five years of
activity. The Hub brings together a large team of researchers (60+) working
in and across the disciplines of computer science, communications
engineering, human geography, sociology, transport studies, health sciences
and environmental science. For further details, see:
To support our ambitious research programme we are looking to appoint a
postdoctoral research fellow to work on issues surrounding provenance of
linked open data derived from sensors (both human and machine). The
successful candidate will have a good knowledge of the fundamental concepts
underlying the Semantic Web, and the computational realisation and
application of these techniques. Some knowledge of models of provenance
would also be beneficial. They candidate will have a PhD or be about to
complete a PhD in Computer Science. Enthusiasm for digital technology and
innovation relevant to society and the economy is essential as is the
ability to work in a cross-disciplinary team including colleagues in
medicine and the social sciences.
