                            JOB ANNOUNCEMENT


The   Department  of  Computer Science  of   the  University of Cyprus
announces a   position for  a  Special  Scientist within the  research
project  "Tooling  of and   Training  for Collaborative,   Distributed

The position is available immediately and until the end of March 2010.
The annual starting salary for a Research Scientist will be within the
scale of 18,000  - 22,000 EUR  and will  depend  on qualifications and
prior experience.

Innovative  design  is characterized   by   an intense,  collaborative
process of generating  and exploring ideas  meant to contribute to the
solution   of  particular problems.   Innovators go  through cycles of
divergence,   in   which new ideas  are    generated and explored, and
convergence, in  which new ideas are  valued and detailed. The idSpace
project will design and build  a responsive web-based environment that
will offer  an integrated  suite  of  knowledge eliciting and  sharing
tools, and create a collective, sharable  memory to support the entire
innovative design process.

A suitable candidate  for the above  position should have  a degree in
Computer Science or related field and post graduate studies related to
one or  more  of  the  following areas: Context   Awareness,  Adaptive
Systems,    Ontologies,   User  Modeling,   E-Learning,  Collaborative
Learning.   Candidates  should   also have experience   in  conducting
research, possess good programming skills, and be fluent in the use of
the English language.

Applicants need not be  citizens of the  Republic of Cyprus. Knowledge
of the  Greek language, although considered  a practical advantage, is
by no means  a requirement.  The   research activities pursued  by the
successful  applicant can lead  to the earning  of a Ph.D.  if s/he so
wishes.  Due to  the involvement of  the successful candidate in using
cutting  edge technologies, this post is  also suitable for a post doc
