SmartSociety is looking for a Research Associate to work at the Oxford e-Research Centre!
We are seeking a Research Associate to work on distributed systems and orchestration with a particular focus on how these can be realised and understood in the contexts of Web Architecture, specifically REST and Linked Data approaches, and of reasoning over, and allocation of, resources in dynamic and potentially incomplete environments.
The role is to assist in the research, design, development and evaluation of a system for compositionality and social orchestration and its deployment with the wider Smart Society platform. Building upon research into semantic workflow orchestration already undertaken in the ‘Smart Share’ application, the postholder will work towards the abstraction of these findings into generalised methods and mechanisms that will be applied in other Smart Society use cases.
This is a fixed-term post for 1 year.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 14 April 2015 with interviews being held on 24 April 2015.
