Knowledge Media Institute (KMi)
£27,854 - £36,298, Ref: 8761
Based in Milton Keynes
Temporary contract until 31st May 2014

Application closed on: Thursday 07 March 2013.

Linked Open Data has proven to be a very successful vehicle promoting the sharing and use of data via the Web. Over the last few years the Open University's Knowledge Media Institute (KMi) has been investigating how to integrate service technologies including Web APIs/REST services with Linked Open Data. We use the term Linked Services to cover the general area that we are investigating.

The research aims at extending our Linked Services infrastructure and tooling including the results from the EU SOA4All project (WSMO-Lite, MicroWSMO, iServe) to empower users to create advanced applications by combining the wealth of Linked Data existing on the Web and within organisations, together with added-value services and processes that leverage this data. The appointed candidate would work within one of our current EU projects: COMPOSE (developing a marketplace combining services and the Internet of Things) or VPH Share (which aims at sharing human body processes).

To apply, please fill the application form below and also include a Covering Letter (a maximum of 2,500 words) and CV
