Post-doc and Senior Researcher Positions at the Ontology Engineering Group (UPM)

The Ontology Engineering Group at UPM is looking for well motivated individuals who would like to carry out research in any of our research topics (Ontology-based Data Acces and Integration, Open Science, Citizen Science and Smart Cities –Oscar Corcho- and Semantic Technologies in the Scientific Ethics Field –Asunción Gómez-Pérez-). These individuals will be able to work in a research group with a multicultural background, large experience in research, active participation in international R&D projects (with more than five EU projects currently running), and with a good publication and innovative software development record.

This call is associated to the yearly Spanish call for post-doc and senior researcher positions in Spanish universities and research centres (known as "Juan de la Cierva" and "Ramón y Cajal" programmes) which has been recently announced by the Spanish Ministry of Science [1]. These positions are open to young and senior researchers holding a PhD, independently of their nationality.

These applications are evaluated according to the research profile of the candidate, to the quality of the research proposal and to the quality of the research group in which they are willing to carry out their research. Our group has always obtained the maximum mark in its evaluation.
