Job Announcement

The *Institute of Evolutionary Biology and Ecology* of the 
*Friedrich-Wilhelms University of Bonn, Germany*, invites applications 
for the positions of

*2 Information Scientists (f/m; TV-L 13 = app. 42.000€ year's salary, 
pre-tax; 100%)*

for three years for the *DFG projekt „eScience-Compliant Standards for 
Morphology“*, anticipated *starting date August 1^st 2014*.


*Project Aims and Scope:*Following a user-centered-design approach and 
in close coordination with four use-cases, new modules for 
ontology-based morphological descriptions, taxonomic descriptions, and 
image annotation will be developed for the morphological data repository 
/Morph·D·Base/ (www.morphdbase.de). It should be possible to create the 
descriptions either through natural language processing and semantic 
annotation (text markup) or by entering RDF triplets using ontologies. 
The development of these modules is done in close collaboration with the 
US-American project „TaxonWorks“ (taxonworks.org). For additional 
information about the project please refer to 

*Work Environment:*We provide the opportunity to work for a large 
national project, in a team of three programmers and other scientists 
from scientific research collections and biodiversity informatics. You 
will work in the interdisciplinary, still very young and exciting field 
of research of ontology applications. You will develop new approaches 
for solving very complex questions of comparative morphology and taxonomy.

*Responsibilities:*Setting up an ontology-server and reasoner, 
adaptation of different modules for display and input of ontologies and 
the development of missing functionality for the Web interface of 
Morph·D·Base. Furthermore, participating in regular meetings of all 
persons involved in the project is necessary. For the most part, these 
meetings will be held in Germany.

*Requirements: *If you have knowledge in dealing with ontologies and 
programming of ontology applications, you are welcome in our team! 
Further, we would like applicants to have experience in setting up an 
ontology-server and reasoner, in the implementation of Web interfaces, 
as well as in the design of databases.

In case the applicant is correspondingly qualified, payment will be 
according to German TV-L 13 pay scale (app. 42.000€ year's salary, 
pre-tax). Part-time work is possible. Disabled applicants will be given 
preference when equal qualifications are present.To increase the number 
of women in the scientific staff, female candidates are especially asked 
to apply.

Please forward your applications including CV, list of successfully 
completed projects, references and copies of certificates *online until 
10th of July 2014* to:
*Mrs. K. Hennes (**secretary at evolution.uni-bonn.de* 
<mailto:secretary at evolution.uni-bonn.de>*)*.

For further questions please contact Dr. Lars Vogt 
(lars.m.vogt at googlemail.com) or Dr. Peter Grobe (p.grobe at zfmk.de).
