Postdoctoral in Computer Science (Data and Search Informatics), Indiana University, USA

The Center for Data and Search Informatics at Indiana University has an active program with research in areas including Internet modeling, recommender systems, information retrieval, human interaction, provenance and metadata, and workflow systems.

The center is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work on projects related to data provenance in cyberinfrastructure (or e-Science) environments. This work is in collaboration with faculty in artificial intelligence, information visualization, the IU Digital Libraries Program, and industry participants. The candidate must have a PhD and have expertise in the area of metadata, provenance, workflow systems, and/or semantic web. Experience in empirical system evaluation is needed, as are demonstrated strong writing skills.

Initial appointment as a postdoctoral fellow will be for one year with possible renewal for an additional 2-3 years. A PhD in computer science or a closely related field is required. Applications for the postdoctoral position are accepted on a continuing basis and starting dates can be adjusted, however, a starting date of January 2008 is ideal.
