The research laboratory of Software Engineering and Internet Technologies
(SEIT) of the Department of Computer Science, University of Cyprus,
announces one full time Special Scientist position in Technology Enhanced
Learning for two Erasmus+ projects that the SEIT Lab coordinates.

SEIT focuses its research activities on two important areas of Information
Technology, namely Software Engineering and Internet Technologies. In the
first area, SEIT focuses on Cloud Computing, Service Oriented Architectures,
Context-Aware Middleware Platforms and Smart and Mobile Computing for
the development of pervasive, self-adaptive applications and Smart IoT
services. In the second area, the Laboratory concentrates on the development
of ICT-enabled Environments, platforms and tools for implementing Health
monitoring and support services, Smart and Personalised services for Elders,
Assistive Technologies for people with disabilities and Creativity services. The
lab also pursues activities related to Technology Enhanced Learning,
E-Business, EGovernment and developing environments for elders' social
inclusion, active ageing and independent living. Finally, the lab's research is
also related to Creativity, Recommender Systems and Crowd Sourcing.

The candidate is expected to be a highly-motivated individual with proven
capability to work in a demanding multi-disciplinary research environment
and eager to be actively engaged in the demanding activities of European
