ontologies, knowledge acquisition and question answering by reasoning.


Initial responsibilities will include dedicated work in contributing to 
the ongoing development and maintenance of
complex software systems. Specifically, in the near future, we will 
design and implement question answering methods
using description logics and logic programming style of reasoning. The 
future work will involve investigating techniques
  for scalable reasoning.We anticipate applying the techniques developed 
in this effort to problems that are of interest
to both government and business, with an eye toward commercialization 
opportunities.The most immediate application
focus area is science education.


  This position requires background in ontologies and reasoning with 
exposure to description logics and/or logic
  programming, semantic web, large knowledge bases, qualitative 
simulation and reasoning.

  The position requires excellent communication skills, willingness and
