Sci­entific Soft­ware Engin­eer / Onto­logy Engin­eer (m/f/d)

Pro­gram Area C, Research and Devel­op­ment, Data Sci­ence & Digital Lib­rar­ies Research Group

Working field:

The pos­i­tion is set within the frame­work of the research pro­ject CoyPu (Cog­nit­ive Eco­nomy Intel­li­gence Platt­form für die Resi­li­enz wirtschaft­licher Ökosysteme), fun­ded by the Fed­eral Min­istry for Eco­nomic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). In this pro­ject, an AI-based inform­a­tion plat­form for effi­cient crisis man­age­ment is being developed. In the event of com­plex eco­nomic chal­lenges, the plat­form net­works, ana­lyses and eval­u­ates mac­roe­co­nomic, sec­tor-spe­cific and internal com­pany data. From the eval­u­ated facts, inter­de­pend­en­cies are derived and daily updated fore­casts are cre­ated to sup­port crisis man­age­ment.

Your tasks will focus on
The devel­op­ment of innov­at­ive and effi­cient solu­tions for a web plat­form that sup­ports
  • the val­id­a­tion and integ­ra­tion of ter­min­o­lo­gies for map­ping eco­nomic data,
  • tools for col­lab­or­at­ive cre­ation and work on ter­min­o­lo­gies,
  • the effect­ive access and cur­a­tion of ter­min­o­lo­gies (includ­ing onto­logy and instance map­ping).

  • A very good com­mand of writ­ten and spoken Eng­lish
  • Excel­lent know­ledge of mod­ern pro­gram­ming lan­guages, such as Java in par­tic­u­lar, and mod­ern soft­ware engin­eer­ing meth­ods; proven skills in soft­ware devel­op­ment in a team (Git­Lab)
  • Famili­ar­ity with meth­ods and tech­no­lo­gies from the envir­on­ment of the Semantic Web and data man­age­ment

  • Fron­tend devel­op­ment skills with mod­ern pro­gram­ming lan­guages (like REACT)
  • Interest in mas­ter­ing and apply­ing formal meth­ods
