The Data Management and Service-oriented Computing research group at
the Dipartimento di Ingegneria informatica, gestionale e automatica
(DIAG), Sapienza Università di Roma, Italy, offers a post-doctoral
position on the design and development of ontology-based data access
systems.  The position is financed by the IP project Optique -
scalable end-user access to big data (www.optique-project.eu), within
the EU Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), and concerns, in particular,
the design and implementation of ontology and mapping management
functionalities of ontology-based data access systems.

Preference will be given to candidates that hold (or that are about to
finish) a Ph.D. in computer science, and have a background in OWL,
ontology reasoning, RDF, and relational databases. Significant
experience and skill in software development is a strict requirement
for the position.

The Optique project provides challenging industrial use cases
involving big data: the position will give the candidate the
possibility of applying her/his research within such use cases.
Although design and implementation is the main focus of the position,
the candidate will have the possibility to conduct resarch within the
Database and Knowledge Representation research group of DIAG, which is
one of the best known research groups in Description Logics (DLs),
data integration, service/process composition and integration, and
reasoning about actions. Furthermore, some of its members are
considered among the founders of the research in the area of DLs,
which is currently considered of crucial importance for the
development of the Semantic Web and semantic-oriented technologies.

The position will start in the second half of 2013, and has an initial
duration of one year, with the possibility of extension up to two

Interested applicants should contact Prof. Riccardo Rosati
(rosati at dis.uniroma.it). Please attach a detailed CV including a list
of publications, a statement of interest and up to 3 references
(reference letters will be requested directly from the referees).

The deadline for the application is April 20, 2013.
