POST-DOC POSITION on CREDIBILITY IN MULTIMODAL SEARCH
Vienna University of Technology, Austria

The Information and Software Engineering Group at the Institute of 
Software Technology and Interactive Systems at the Vienna University of 
Technology announces the availability of a 2-year post-doctoral position.

The position is associated to the MUCKE project, funded within the 
CHIST-ERA funding scheme of FP7, which fosters highly innovative and 
multidisciplinary collaborative projects in information and 
communication sciences and technologies. The project started in October 
2012. Its main objective is to devise new and reliable knowledge 
extraction models designed for multilingual and multimodal data shared 
on social networks. More information on MUCKE: 
http://www.chistera.eu/projects/mucke

The main task of the post-doc is to investigate and propose new models 
for user and result-list credibility. The aim is to provide the user of 
a multimedia search system with a list of results from reliable sources, 
together with an estimation of how reliable each source is, as well as 
how reliable the entire set of results is. Such reliability is to be 
understood from two orthogonal perspectives: First, the topical 
relatedness of the results (i.e. relevance). Second, the likelihood that 
the result, although topically relevant, is also accurate.
To approach this task, the post-doc must have strong mathematical 
background (preferably including statistics), as well as a fundamental 
understanding of Information Retrieval. Applicants with experience in 
NLP and/or Computer Logic will be favored.

The position is available from November 2012 and is open until filled.
For further information, please send an expression of interest to 
[log in to unmask], attaching a CV.

== About our Group ==
The working group Information and Software Engineering is part of the 
Institute of Software Technology and Interactive Systems.
It covers the design and development of software and information systems 
in research and education.
The other groups cover E-Commerce, Business  Informatics, and 
Interactive Media Systems.
Both theoretical and engineering-like approaches to problem solving have 
equal balance in our research and educational work - leading to "real 
world problem solving".

The Group is situated in downtown Vienna, in an environment which brings 
together all aspects of student and academic life. The post-doc will be 
part of the Information Management & Processing lab,  which consists of 
researchers in text and music information retrieval, as well as in 
multimedia processing. The working language is English. A more detailed 
description of the IMP lab is available at http://ifs.tuwien.ac.at/~imp/
