UNIVERSITY OF CYPRUS DEPARTMENT OF COMPUTER SCIENCE PRELIMINARY JOB ANNOUNCEMENT VACANCY FOR A RESEARCH ASSOCIATE IN THE AREA OF E-LEARNING The Department of Computer Science of the University of Cyprus intends to officially announce shortly (within the next three months) a position for a Research Associate within the research project "Tooling of and Training for Collaborative, Distributed Product Innovation" (idSpace), to be funded by IST of FP7. The position is initially for one year, renewable for one more year. The annual salary for a Research Associate starts at the A8 scale (about EUR 15,000 initially), but the exact amount will depend on qualifications and prior experience. Innovative design is characterised by an intense, collaborative process of generating and exploring ideas meant to contribute to the solution of particular problems. Innovators go through cycles of divergence, in which new ideas are generated and explored, and convergence, in which new ideas are valued and detailed. The idSpace project will design and build a responsive web-based environment that will offer an integrated suite of knowledge eliciting and sharing tools, and create a collective, sharable memory to support the entire innovative design process. A suitable candidate for the above position should have a degree in Computer Science or related field and post graduate studies related to one or more of the following areas: Context Awareness, Adaptive Systems, Ontologies, User Modeling, e-learning, Collaborative learning. Candidates should also have experience in conducting research and possess good programming skills. Applicants need not be citizens of the Republic of Cyprus. Knowledge of the Greek language, although considered a practical advantage, is by no means a requirement. The research activities pursued by the successful applicant can lead to the earning of a Ph.D. if s/he so wishes (in this case, any academic fees for enroling to the Department's Ph.D. programme are waived). Due to the involvement of the successful candidate in using cutting edge technologies, this post is also suitable for a post doc position.
