The post-doc will be involved mainly in research and will participate in the Geo-information Technology and Governance research programme. Tasks include publishing and (co-)editing papers for authoritative international scientific journals, writing and presenting conference proceedings, and (co-)producing national professional publications. The main research topics focus on:
• Spatial databases (SQL, NoSQL, big data, distributed and parallel spatial data processing),
• Information modelling (formal semantics, reasoning, standardisation, UML, RDF/OWL, linked data),
• Geoweb services (protocols, sensor networks, streaming data, encodings, web-visualisation).
There is also the opportunity to be involved in some GEO-ICT education.


The post-doc should have:
• a PhD degree from an internationally recognised institution in a field related to spatial databases, webservices or visualisation (databases, information modelling, web information systems, geoinformation, computational geometry, computer graphics, geomatics, geodesy, or a comparable subject).
• ample theoretic knowledge and practical experience in spatial databases, webservices or visualisation.
• excellent scientific skills, as demonstrated by peer-reviewed publications.
• an affinity for applying research results to real-world problems; the ability to develop prototypes and software is an advantage.
• a high level of written and spoken English.
Experience in supervising MSc students is an advantage.

Technische Universiteit Delft


Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution offering education and carrying out research in the technical sciences at an internationally recognised level. Education, research and design are strongly oriented towards applicability. TU Delft develops technologies for future generations, focusing on sustainability, safety and economic vitality. At TU Delft you will work in an environment where technical sciences and society converge. TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique laboratories, research institutes and schools. Architecture Within this vibrant faculty, the OTB Department specialises in independent reseach in the field of housing, construction, and the built environment. The policy areas of OTB are centred around various aspects of the built environment: housing markets, housing governance, housing quality, urban and neighbourhood change, urban systems and transport infrastructure, urban and regional development, sustainable building and building policy, land policy, geo-information governance and geo-information technology.

The GIS Technology section investigates how the geo-information infrastructure or Spatial Data Infrastructure (geoweb) can be further strengthened in order to solve complex social, industrial, and management activities in the built environment. Two main applications are given particular attention: land administration and real-time GIS. The research aims to develop both concepts and tools to facilitate sharing, exchange, integration, update and reuse of information sources within the SDI. The information is not limited to traditional 2D maps, but increasingly involves extra dimensions (3D, 4D,…nD), or in less abstract terms, topics such as vario-scale geo-information, nD-PointClouds and 3D Cadastres.
