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 at 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.
