Rightscom Ltd is seeking a talented software engineer or a long-term
relationship with a support organization with access to a suitable range
of skills.

The work requires experience in ontologies, semantic web and logic
programming, a good mix of concrete practical skills (scripting, web &
database programming), 'big picture'/theoretical understanding and a
lively interest in lexical (i.e. non-logical) aspects of ontology
building and management.

Duties will include:

(a)         Selection, implementation and development of ontology
management tool(s)

(b)         Data Transformation - taking over the development and
maintenance of a small, but relatively advanced ontology-driven XML
transformation and semantic data integration application, currently
written in XSB prolog.  It is anticipated that future development of the
application will involve non-monotonic reasoning, probably taking
advantage of XSB's well founded semantics.  

(c)         High level ontology design and re-factoring

(d)         Contributing to development of specific solutions for

It is essential for the candidate or organization to be able to
collaborate closely with a small team of very intelligent, but not
mathematically/theoretically oriented people with diverse backgrounds
(including consulting, management, data modelling, domain semantics,
mainstream software development ...).

Solid prolog programming and an in-depth knowledge of OWL and RDF are
essential skills, but in general an ease with advanced
formal/theoretical/ mathematical concepts, the ability to constantly
learn and the understanding of the interrelation between disciplines is
more important than the detailed knowledge of any given subject.
