PhD Student Positions in Semantic Learning and Ontology-based Retrieval (Delft & Amsterdam, NL)

Three PhD Vacancies in Amsterdam and Delft

The Adaptive Information Disclosure (AID) project is part of a larger
effort aimed at the creation of a Virtual Lab environment for e-science
(VL-E).  In the context of AID we will be building a suite of dynamic,
model driven information and knowledge extraction tools on top of an
architecture for grid-based distributed data analysis.  Keywords are:
semantic models, agent technology, formal concept analysis, datamining,
text mining, grid mining, grammar induction, information extraction,
question answering, and the dynamic maintenance of ontologies.

Within the AID project we have three PhD positions available:

1. Operations on Ontologies (at TNO-TPD, Delft/the Free University
of Amsterdam)
2. Semantic Learning with Specific Application to Ontologies (at
the University of Amsterdam)
3. Ontology-based Retrieval (at the University of Amsterdam)

Further information about these vacancies is available at

Prospective candidates should apply with a cover letter, CV, statement of
research interests and accomplishments, and names and email addresses of 3
references.  The ability to proactively cooperate with fellow researchers
and good written and oral English language skills are prerequisites for
this position.

Please send the required information, by email only, by Monday May 17,
2004 to:

  Ms. Fransje Enserink
  Informatics Institute
  University of Amsterdam
  Email: enserink@science.uva.nl

Candidates should indicate which of the three positions they are primarily
interested in.

The starting date for these positions can be as early as July 1, 2004, and
the duration is four years.
