Dear colleagues,

We start the recruitment for a combined PhD project around search for scientific research data. Deadline of applications is August 4, 2016.

The complete job description can be found here: https://www.academictransfer.com/employer/UVA/vacancy/34985/lang/en/

Warmest regards



The Royal Netherlands Academy Arts and Sciences (KNAW)<https://www.knaw.nl/en>, the University of Amsterdam (UvA)<http://www.uva.nl/en/home>, and the VU University Amsterdam (VU)<http://www.vu.nl/en/index.aspx> invite applications for three PhD positions for four years. The positions are part of the project 'Re-SEARCH: Contextual Search for Scientific Research Data', which is jointly funded by Elsevier and NWO.

Scientific, technical and medical knowledge is built on research data. It increasingly plays a similar role in the social sciences and humanities. Research datasets are either deposited by researchers or automatically extracted from publications. The Re-SEARCH project proposes to create open source search and recommendation solutions for research datasets so as to enable their re-use.

Within the Re-SEARCH project, three PhD students will work on search, representation and user aspects of research datasets. These PhD students will be based at different academic locations and the team as a whole will have regular meetings at Elsevier’s Amsterdam offices.
