Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Information Science
###################################################
- to Study the Impact of European Science,
Technology and Innovation Research on the Web

A position has become available for a postdoctoral
researcher to work on a 3-year long EU funded project
into developing and implementing Web link based metrics
to analyse the impact of science, technology and
innovation research on the Web. The Wolverhampton
research group (http://cybermetrics.wlv.ac.uk/) has
played a significant part in laying the foundations for
this exciting new area of research and the successful
applicant will have the opportunity to use the tools
developed by the group and to build on the methodologies
in order to make an important contribution to the
development of this new field.

In the nature of the post it is not expected that
applicants will have prior experience of similar work
but those with a Ph.D. in an area related to Information
Science, Computer Science or Maths will be considered.
The successful applicant will have working knowledge of
the Web, the Internet and basic statistics, and will be
able to apply their existing research skills to this new
area.

The project involves international collaboration and the
researcher should expect to have to occasionally visit
other countries in Europe for team meetings and
conferences, in addition to attending a conference in
China. Good communication and team working skills are
essential, and knowledge of one or more other European
languages would be an advantage. Applicants from European
countries outside the UK are particularly encouraged to
apply. The salary will be on the researcher B scale from
£17624 - £22948 per year and the starting date will be as
soon as possible after the interview.
