        Subject: research grant on geographical ontology

dear all,

the Università  del Piemonte Orientale - Vercelli at the address
has a call for 1 research grant  (1 year, 19.000 euro pre-tax) for a person 
(less than 35 years old and PhD) which will work to the construction of 
a geographical ontology to be used in the annotation/markup of a latin 
texts corpus; moreover, she will participate to the development of the 
software prototype of the annotation working environment.

the research project "geolat" has an interdisciplinary team which needs 
a person able to finalize the reflections and decision of the group 
about the geographical ontology, and to build/integrate the specific 
parts of ontology for latin texts with other already existing elsewhere.

The candidate should have a solid background in computer science, 
computational ontologies and RDF, with no constraints on the domain 
where s/he got this knowledge: computer science, information 
engineering, or cognitive sciences.

as an official document the call is written in italian, interested 
people can ask for explanations to m.lana at lett.unipmn.it
