Position:         Post-doctoral Researcher
Reference #:  NT_SHELL_PostDoc2013
Initial Close Date: October 20th, 2013.

The 'New Talent Program" of the Trento RISE Association is seeking candidates for a post-doc position to work in the “Shape and Evolve Living Knowledge (SHELL)” project at the Bruno Kessler Foundation, Trento, Italy.
SHELL (shell.fbk.eu<http://shell.fbk.eu/>) aims at joining different scientific competences in order to build an environment able to maintain a living inventory of knowledge of an organization. The environment must be able to shape the conceptual models of an organization from textual content and data, and support their co-evolution and adaptation w.r.t., content and data.

About Us
FBK-ICT (www.fbk.eu<http://www.fbk.eu/>) conducts research in information technology. Interdisciplinary research projects, such as SHELL, aim at  addressing important research challenges by joining the different scientific competences that are at the base of the internationally well-known scientific excellence of FBK.

Job description
In this position, you will be working in collaboration with other scientists on the exploitation, adaptation and combination of techniques and approaches borrowed from different research fields, ranging from logic to artificial intelligence, from model checking to statistics, to advance the existing services for process analysis and process model (re-)design from monitoring data. To this purpose, several are the challenges to be faced in the work as, for example, (i) the capability to represent and reason about secondary aspects for business processes such as data, time, resources; (ii) the capability to align execution information with models, when they exist, or to discover models from traces, when they do not exist; (iii) the capability to manage and reason on extremely large quantity of data (big data); (iv) the capability to realise the abovementioned analyses at run-time.
The work will put together theoretical and methodological aspects, including for example the problem conceptualization and representation, as well as implementation and optimization ones, aimed at the development of process analysis services and tools.

Required skills/qualifications:
- PhD degree in computer science, mathematics or electronic engineering (to be completed within 2013 or beginning 2014);
- Solid theoretical background in logic and business process modeling;
- Skills in experimental work and software development;
- Ability to carry out an independent program of research;
- Ability to work in a collaborative environment and deliver in research projects;
- Oral and written proficiency in English.
- Experience in machine learning, knowledge representation and knowledge engineering;
- PhD related to the topic of the call;
- Experience with practical applications;
- Soft skill (communication, teambuilding, problem solving etc)

Good to have:
- Experience in machine learning, knowledge representation and knowledge engineering;
- PhD related to the topic of the call;
- Experience with practical applications;

Type of contract: Research position - Full time (38h per week)
Gross salary: from 36.000,00 to 38.000,00 Euro per year
(depending on the candidate’s experience)
Duration: up to 3 years
