Work center ETSI Informáticos

Address: Calle Ciruelos 2 - 28660 Boadilla del Monte (Madrid)

Working time (h/week.): 37,50

Annual gross salary(€): €40.000,00

Expected duration (months): 12

Expected start date: 01-10-21

Required degree: PhD in Computer Science or a related discipline

Required experiencie:

  • The person must have a research profile to work in the field of creation and exploitation of knowledge graphs generated from distributed data sources using linked data and semantics. Knowledge of the Internet of Things, data integration, definition of mappings to integrate heterogeneous data sources, validation of knowledge graphs, and machine learning on knowledge graphs and IoT data will be an asset.
  • The person must have a developer profile with experience and autonomy in the design and development of web services. For the development of these services, the person must know at least one programming language (Java, Python, JavaScript) and at least one framework for the development of services.
