The Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam is looking for two PhD students for the 
project the Semantics of History. The project will develop a historical 
thesaurus and ontology for a Dutch history archive that is linked to a 
Dutch lexicon. Ontology and lexicon modeling and acquisition in the 
historical domain are the important methods. Special attention is payed 
to: representing different realities in time, event semantics, 
perspective on events through lexicalization. Candidates should have a 
Master in AI or Linguistics, they should be trained in semantics, 
ontologies and lexicons and they should be fluent speakers of Dutch. The 
AIOs will collaborate in the interfaculty institute Camera. One AIO will 
work at the Faculty of Exact Science, supervised by Prof Guus Schreiber 
and one AIO will work at the Faculty of Arts, supervised by Prof Piek 
Vossen. The project starts in July 2009 and ends June 2013.
