Course: Multi-agent Semantic Web Systems

Teaching Assistant

Time in Year:  
Course runs in Semester 2, some preparation in Sem 1 needed.

Number of Posts:


Teaching Assistant for Multi Agent Semantic Web Systems, required primarily to construct, test and mark two practical exercises: one involving  RDF(S) for ontology construction (interfaced with either Python or Java), the other on connecting a simple agent system to a web service (possibly using Jason).  Last year, the second kind of exercise was missing, so this will need to be built from scratch. See the course web page for relevant background: Knowledge of both of the exercise topic areas is an advantage, although someone who is keen to learn, partly in their own time, would be considered too.  The job could also be split, although preference will be given to applicants who can support both exercises.

There might also be some scope for running a couple of demonstration lab sessions, though this will be decided nearer the time.

This post is paid at grade UE06, currently upwards of £12.50/hr.  Double time for tutoring.

Total Hours:  up to 80 hours (depending on student numbers)
