Context: Collaboration between Scienomics/Paris and IRIT/Toulouse

SCIENOMICS is an enterprise specialized in materials simulations and currently is developing SIMAGORA, an online marketplace offering virtual experiments for the eco-conception and development of products, and the materials needed. SIMAGORA allows the interoperability between simulation engines from diverse domains. The aim is to democratize simulation technology and will provide to the international scientific community the capability to offer cutting-edge virtual experimentation technology to all companies worldwide.

In the context of a collaboration with IRIT, the aim is to leverage semantic components in SIMAGORA, in particular ontologies for representing the products studied and documenting simulations; approaches for matching ontologies, and for matching user queries and ontology content. Artificial Intelligence units will be built in order to identify and suggest simulation scenarios based on user’s requirements.

Sujet :
This post-doc involves the generation of simulation scenarios (structured graphs in the simulation space) based on ontologies, matching of scenarios and treatment of NLP user queries:
(a) research and development in ontologies that will allow to capture product design and materials knowledge;
(b) research and development of matching of ontologies of simulations;
(c) research and development in artificial intelligent related to user/machine interaction and approaches for matching user queries and ontology description through graph search and making suggestions.

Profil du candidat :
Applicants should be enthusiastic to work in a disruptive project that ambitions to address critical social and industrial issues related to product impact on environment while at the same time offering equal opportunities to all businesses and scientists worldwide. Applicants are required to have a PhD in Computer Science, a strong background in semantic web technologies, ontology engineering, ontology construction and reasoning. Fluency in written / spoken English is required too. A good publication record and strong programming skills will be a plus. Capability to integrate a diverse group of people and supervise research and development work of PhD candidates.
