Postdoctoral Research Position in
Information Retrieval and Machine Learning
The Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications at the
National Library of Medicine, a research component of the National
Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Health and Human Services,
is recruiting for postdoctoral fellows and visiting scholars to participate
in collaborative research in Machine Learning, Information Modeling and
Retrieval, Computational Linguistics and Biomedical Informatics. Fellows and
scholars will have the opportunity to develop next generation information
architectures to interpret and elucidate biomedical text and data, and
improve access to biomedical information with optimal accuracy.
Postdoctoral candidates should hold a PhD or equivalent degree in computer
science, engineering, or a related field. Applicants without a master or
doctoral level computer science degree should possess exceptional
programming skills in at least one language (preferably in Perl). A
background in information retrieval/question-answering, machine learning,
computational linguistics, biomedical informatics, scientific ontologies
and/or Bayesian probability theory is a plus.
The salary is commensurate with research experience and education.
