Tech­ni­sche Infor­ma­ti­ons­bi­blio­thek (TIB) - Pro­gram Area C, Research and Devel­op­ment

TIB, being part of the Leib­niz Research Asso­ci­ation, is with around 550 employ­ees one of the largest tech­nical inform­a­tion centres in Ger­many, hav­ing three main func­tions:
1. Act­ing in the capa­city of the Leib­niz Inform­a­tion Centre for Sci­ence and Tech­no­logy, our for­ward-look­ing ser­vices secure the infra­struc­tural require­ments for provid­ing research­ers in sci­ence and industry with high-qual­ity inform­a­tion and lit­er­at­ure.
2. Car­ry­ing out cut­ting edge research to fur­ther expand TIB’s role as a Ger­man inform­a­tion centre for the digit­isa­tion of sci­ence and tech­no­logy
3. Offer lib­rary ser­vices for the Leib­niz Uni­versity Han­nover.

As the Ger­man National Lib­rary of Sci­ence and Tech­no­logy our future-ori­ented ser­vices ensure the infra­struc­tural require­ments for a high-qual­ity sup­ply of inform­a­tion and lit­er­at­ure for research in sci­ence and industry. Our ser­vices as a uni­versity lib­rary secure the local sup­ply for the Leib­niz Uni­versity Han­nover.

Research Engin­eer in the field of Research Data Man­age­ment (m/f/d)

Work­ing field:

You will work in a team to build a large-scale semantic data man­age­ment plat­form for the field of sup­ply chain man­age­ment in the semi­con­ductor industry. It is a multi-national pro­ject fun­ded by the European Union (EU) that involves many big indus­trial man­u­fac­tur­ers aim­ing at seman­ti­fy­ing their data under well-defined onto­lo­gies.

Your tasks will focus on
Your main duties will be focused on onto­logy integ­ra­tion, align­ment and har­mon­iz­a­tion as well as data annota­tion and man­age­ment using RDF-related tools. This involves RDF­iz­ing the data, as well as stor­age, retrieval and main­ten­ance. You are expec­ted to be able to install, run and integ­rate all the soft­ware required to estab­lish a semantic­ally annot­ated data repos­it­ory, which implies solid famili­ar­ity with vir­tu­al­iz­a­tion plat­forms such as Docker, as well as data­bases such as Vir­tu­oso, GraphDB, Mon­goDB and oth­ers. You also are expec­ted to be able to develop pro­grams using mod­ern pro­gram­ming lan­guages such as Python, Java and JavaS­cript.


Your com­pet­ence area should be squarely rooted in data sci­ence, onto­logy devel­op­ment and soft­ware engin­eer­ing or related fields. You should be able to think cre­at­ively, grasp new know­ledge quickly, be able to design and develop innov­at­ive soft­ware sys­tems and be inter­ested in mas­ter­ing com­plex chal­lenges.

The fol­low­ing qual­i­fic­a­tions are man­dat­ory
  • Suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter’s degree or equi­val­ent) in a rel­ev­ant field of study such as Com­puter Sci­ence, Inform­a­tion Sci­ence, Math­em­at­ics or a com­par­able field of study
  • Pro­fi­ciency in spoken and writ­ten Eng­lish
  • Excel­lent pro­fi­ciency in mod­ern pro­gram­ming lan­guages (espe­cially Python, Java and JavaS­cript) and mod­ern soft­ware engin­eer­ing meth­od­o­lo­gies
  • Proven team soft­ware devel­op­ment skills
  • Exper­i­ences in onto­logy devel­op­ment, align­ment, integ­ra­tion and pub­lish­ing
  • Solid exper­i­ences in using RDF and SPARQL for data mod­el­ling and query­ing
  • Famili­ar­ity with onto­lo­gies and their applic­a­tions, e. g. DataCube, FOAF, DCAT, etc.
  • Famili­ar­ity with RDF stores such as GraphDB and Vir­tu­oso
  • Exper­i­ences in Know­ledge Rep­res­ent­a­tion and Reas­on­ing, Semantic Tech­no­lo­gies and Web Engin­eer­ing

Desir­able qual­i­fic­a­tions are
  • Pro­fi­ciency in spoken and writ­ten Ger­man
  • Exper­i­ence in the devel­op­ment of con­trolled vocab­u­lar­ies and clas­si­fic­a­tions
  • Famili­ar­ity and interest in sci­entific data and meta-data man­age­ment
  • Know­ledge of Research Data Man­age­ment Tools and Ser­vices
  • Know­ledge of sup­ply chain man­age­ment pro­cesses and related con­cepts on
  • Exper­i­ences in RML and R2RML map­ping lan­guages and semantic query­ing over RML

What we of­fer:

The Leib­niz Inform­a­tion Centre for Sci­ence and Tech­no­logy – Tech­nis­che Inform­a­tions­bib­lio­thek (TIB) – Pro­gram Area C, Research and Devel­op­ment, is look­ing to employ a

Research Engin­eer in the field of Research Data Man­age­ment (m/f/d)

to work in the Leib­niz Joint Lab Data Sci­ence and Open Know­ledge of the TIB Research and Devel­op­ment depart­ment and the L3S Research Cen­ter under the super­vi­sion of Prof. Dr. Sören Auer and Dr. Javad Cham­an­ara.

The pos­i­tion is ini­tially lim­ited to three years with envi­sioned exten­sion. The reg­u­lar weekly work­ing time is 39.8 hours (full-time). The pos­i­tion is only suit­able for part-time work to a lim­ited extent. The remu­ner­a­tion of the pos­i­tion is based on pay scale group 13 TV-L.

What we offer
In TIB’s Research and Devel­op­ment Depart­ment, you have the oppor­tun­ity to fur­ther your sci­entific devel­op­ment in a dynamic and excel­lent research envir­on­ment.
