Description

The successful applicant will explore scenarios involving a tight coupling between conceptual 
knowledge captured in ontologies, and the more diverse world of intelligent systems (which 
incorporate a variety of computational paradigms). The project will explore several ways in 
which computation and knowledge can be more effectively integrated with a view to support 
various activities of software and knowledge engineering. The successful applicant will have 
a first or upper second class degree (or equivalent) in Computing Science or Artificial 
Intelligence, along with knowledge of Semantic Web and Knowledge Representation; the person 
will be a competent programmer, and have experience of using Java. Please note that this is 
a 24 month Master of Philosophy programme and NOT a 36 month Doctor of Philosophy programme. 
Some support will be provided to allow attendance at meetings in both years. Appropriate 
Computer equipment will be provided. The successful applicant will be expected to commence 
studies on 1 October 2013. More information and on-line application available at
