The group has a strong background in the application of Artificial Intelligence techniques to middleware for embedded and mobile system in order to foster context-aware reactivity. In addition, the group is currently focusing its research on the area of Smart Cities by leveraging its expertise on Ubiquitous Computing, Linked Open Data management and recommendation and social data mining (Big Data Analytics) to extract structured data from social networks and thus enable urban apps assisting the daily activities of citizens or visitors.

MORElab has recently obtained recognition as recognized research group within the Basque university system. As result of this grant, there is an opening to complete our research skills in heterogeneous data management and analytics. Concretely, we are looking for a PostDoc helping us in the execution of research projects and preparation of proposals of new European projects in the area of ICT oriented towards the resolution of socioeconomic issues. The group is currently embarked in several European H2020 projects which involve knowledge and expertise in the following sub-fields.

The candidates are expected to have knowledge in some of the following fields:

  • Crowdsourcing techniques - user-generated data verification and processing
  • Natural language processing and Big Data Analytics
