Senior Research Associate in Artificial Intelligence and Semantic Technology

Applications for this vacancy closed on 18 November 2019 at 12:00PM
We are pleased to announce the availability of a full-time Senior Research
Associate position in Artificial Intelligence and Semantic Technologies,
available for up to 3 years. Researchers in all topics related to semantic
technologies will be considered, with a preference towards researchers working
on scalable systems for reasoning and query answering over large scale data
sources, stream query processing systems, and on integrating machine learning
and semantic technologies; see, e.g., our RDFox project
(www.cs.ox.ac.uk/isg/tools/RDFox/), our AIDA project
(www.turing.ac.uk/research/research-projects/artificial-intelligence-data-
analytics) and our upcoming project OASIS which will focus on stream
reasoning.



We aim to push forward the capabilities of semantic technologies, examining a
number of directions such as developing languages and algorithms for
declarative data analysis of static and dynamic data, distributed storage and
reasoning, stream reasoning, integrating semantic and relational stores, and
the (semi-) automation of data wrangling and knowledge acquisition. You will
be conducting original research in these areas.



You will join a world-leading group with expertise in both the theory and
practice of semantic technologies as recently recognised by best paper awards
at both the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI),
and the International Conference on the Semantic Web (ISWC). See
www.cs.ox.ac.uk/isg/krr for more information about the research group and our
various research projects.



The primary selection criteria are a relevant PhD/DPhil with post-
qualification research experience, (or close to completion) in theoretical
computer science (particularly logic and/or databases). Experience in semantic
technologies such as Datalog, RDF, and OWL, or of making grant applications is
highly desirable.



Whilst the role is a Grade 8 position, we would be willing to consider
candidates with potential but less experience who are seeking a development
opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at Grade 7 (£32,817 -
£40,322 p.a.) with the responsibilities adjusted accordingly (for Grade 7, you
would be expected to hold a doctoral degree in computer science or be close to
completion). This would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment
where appropriate.



The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Monday 18 November 2019.



Our staff and students come from all over the world and we proudly promote a
friendly and inclusive culture. Diversity is positively encouraged, through
diversity groups and champions, for example www.cs.ox.ac.uk/aboutus/women-cs-
oxford/index.html, as well as a number of family-friendly policies, such as
the right to apply for flexible working and support for staff returning from
periods of extended absence, for example maternity leave.
