The Lab for Linguistics and Computation at Brandeis University invites
applications from outstanding graduate students with an interest in
various aspects of natural language processing, information
extraction, and bioinformatics. Particularly, students with a
background in computational linguistics and/or information extraction,
are encouraged to apply (MS in Computer Science is a plus). There are
2 PhD positions available starting in September 2004, funded by the
National Library of Medicine, for research in natural language text
mining over biological and medical literature.

The research project will involve the following tasks:
named entity extraction, anaphora resolution, pathway discovery,
entity and relation normalization, and finite state and clustering
techniques.
