    I'm forwarding this message on behalf of Simon Buckingham Shum. I think that
    the scholonto project described below is of immense interest to us.

    Subject: 2 Jobs: Modelling & Visualizing Research Literatures

    Hi HyNICers,

    Good to meet some of you at HT/DL. As some of you will already know,
    the ScholOnto project intersects closely with HyNIC, and once we're
    up and running, could be used directly to help achieve HyNIC's goals.

    Please would you consider forwarding this to relevant research and
    student groups who might be looking for Java or AI positions...

    Thanks!

    Simon

    The Open University's Knowledge Media Institute is recruiting top
    calibre staff to meet the challenge of building a next generation
    internet digital library service for disseminating, analysing and
    visualizing research literatures. We are looking for a Research
    Fellow with experience in knowledge representation (e.g. ontologies,
    frame-based representations, description logic, semantic hypertext)
    and/or another field of AI, and an interest in the representation and
    analysis of scholarly argumentation/discourse. The post concerns the
    design and implementation of a knowledge-based, digital library
    server which will assist researchers in managing evolving concepts,
    perspectives and debates. (A related post will build Java user
    interfaces onto the knowledge base.) The appointment will be made on
    the Research staff salary scale, UKP16,286 - 24,479 pa, or
    UKP22,579 - 30,065, depending on qualifications and experience. You'll be
    joining a friendly and dynamic team at the forefront of research and
    development in technologies for scholarly publishing, semantic web
    tools, and knowledge management. We currently have over a dozen
    academic and corporately sponsored research projects in knowledge
    technologies and organizational knowledge management.
