Research Assistant in Large-scale Continuous Data Extraction (VADA)

Applications for this vacancy closed on 17 August 2015 at 12:00PM
The Department of Computer Science has an exciting new opportunity for a
Research Assistant in Large-Scale, Continuous Data Extraction on the VADA
(Value-Added Data Systems and Architecture) project. This project, directed by
Professor Georg Gottlob, is a collaboration between the Universities of
Oxford, Edinburgh, and Manchester, and aims to provide data scientists with a
new generation of tools to unlock the potential of data assets. Specifically,
you would be working on continuous data extraction for a self-healing joint
wrapper induction, and data cleaning systems.

You should have a PhD (or be very close to completion) in a relevant area of
science, together with a track record of conducting and completing research
projects, evidenced by published peer-reviewed work, and /or development of
automatic form-filling or equivalent interaction methods. Evidence of previous
experience in reducing supervision for disambiguation and conflict resolution
in data-driven systems through automatic generation of crowd-sourcing tasks,
and integration of resulting feedback is highly desirable.

The post is fixed-term for up to 3 years (with a possible extension for a
further 2 years).

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 17 August 2015. Interviews
are expected to be held on 21 August 2015.
