The National Center for Biomedical Ontology (NCBO) is one of the seven
National Centers for Biomedical Computing supported by the NIH
Roadmap. The NCBO is administered at Stanford University, with
partners at the Mayo Clinic, the University at Buffalo, the University
of Victoria, and UCSF. The Center provides national technological
infrastructure to support the creation, dissemination, and management
of biomedical information and knowledge in machine-processable form.
The laboratory of Dr. Mark Musen, principal investigator of the NCBO,
is seeking a highly motivated and independent post-doctoral trainee to
conduct research projects at the interface of the life sciences and
the Semantic Web. The post-doc will be involved in ongoing
collaborative work that concerns archiving, querying, and reasoning
about biological data over the Web.
The ideal candidate will have a PhD in Biomedical informatics or
Computer Science and an excellent publication record. The position
requires strong problem-solving skills and the ability to build
software tools in Java. Applicants must possess excellent
communication skills and be fluent in both spoken and written English.
A background in molecular biology or medicine is highly desirable.
Prior experience working with RDF stores, ontologies, or natural-
language processing methods is preferred. This exciting work will be
guided by multidisciplinary collaborations with top scientists at
Stanford and with collaborating projects of the NCBO as well as with
Health Care and Life Sciences interest group of the W3C.
