Cultural-heritage collections are typically indexed with meta data derived from
a range of different vocabularies, while access usually requires the combination
of information from various data sources. The STITCH project aims at developing
theory, methods and tools for allowing meta data interoperability through
semantic links. It is problem-driven, and its deliverables comprise the full
research cycle from theory to the development of relevant tools.

The Koninklijke Bibliotheek, the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics and
the Vrije Universiteit search for a PostDoc, a PhD student and a Scientific
Programmer to work within the STITCH project. For all three positions excellent
knowledge in a relevant research area is expected (e.g. in Knowledge
Representation or related subfields of Artificial Intelligence and Computer
Science). The candidates have to be able to work on finding generic solutions,
and to apply these solutions to concrete problems within the participating
cultural heritage institution.
