Message 1: University of Michigan NCIBI Postdoc Fellowship
Date: 01-Nov-2006
From: Mark Joseph <mtjosephumich.edu>
Subject: University of Michigan NCIBI Postdoc Fellowship


The National Center for Integrative Biomedical Informatics (NCIBI) at the
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, [see http://ncibi.org] is offering an
interdisciplinary postdoctoral fellowship focused on biomedical
applications of natural language processing (NLP). The project will
provide an opportunity to combine the resources of the NCIBI with major
bioinformatics, computational, biomedical research centers and will focus
on collaboration between NCIBI and the National Center for Biotechnology
Information (NCBI) at the National Library of Medicine, NIH, Bethesda.
This project specifically will continue to develop and apply NCIBI NLP and
subgraph matching capabilities, in conjunction with complementary efforts
at NCBI/NLM, to relate literature on molecular regulatory pathways to genes
and diseases with the goal of developing enhanced tools and methods for
computational biomedicine. The position is sponsored by the National
Centers for Biomedical Computing (NCBC) program of the NIH Roadmap to
bridge efforts across the NCBCs and other significant national centers and
resources.

Candidates should have a PhD in computer science, computational
linguistics, or a related field and be familiar with state-of-the-art NLP
technology. Knowledge of molecular biology and biomedical science is
highly desirable. The successful candidate will have excellent
communication skills, both verbal and written, and a good publication
record. She or he should be capable of succeeding in a collaborative
working environment, and developing an independent contribution to this
field. The individual chosen will have strong mentoring and access to
training and resources for research during this 2-year fellowship. This
position is open now; thus, immediate availability of the candidate will be
a consideration. The University of Michigan is an equal
opportunity/affirmative action employer. Please respond to James Cavalcoli
(cavalcolumich.edu), PhD, Project Manager, National Center for
Integrative Biomedical Informatics (http://ncibi.org) or Brian Athey
(bleuumich.edu), PhD, Principal Investigator.
