Postdoc Ad

I am looking for a postdoctoral researcher to work with my group at the University of British Columbia in beautiful Vancouver, BC, Canada.

The postdoc will be working on a project that sits in the area of improving understanding and exploration of (mostly relational) data, potentially including its provenance and data integrated from multiple sources. The exact project will be determined based on the strengths and interests of the postdoc. The postdoc must have a PhD in computer science or closely related area by the time the postdoc starts. The ideal candidate will have some background in data provenance, data exploration, data mining, data summarization, data integration, and/or data visualization.

There is no teaching required for the position, however, it is likely possible to arrange for teaching if the successful candidate would be interested in it.

The position is for one year and can be extended for an additional year by mutual consent. Applications must include a CV and the names and addresses of at least two references. Applications or questions should be sent via email to rap [at]

Reviewing of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. There's no set start time; I'd rather wait for the right candidate than fill the slot now with someone who isn't a good fit.
