The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Description:

Text Mining Scientific Programmer for Brain Architecture Project

Applications are invited for the position of Scientific Programmer for the
Brain Architecture Project, a multi-institutional collaboration based at
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The project aims to assemble available
knowledge about the structure of the vertebrate nervous system and to
provide relevant analytical and visualization tools. See mitralab.org and
brainarchitecture.org for more information.

The scientific programmer will provide general computing support for the
Brain Architecture Project, including the development of data models and
the implementation of databases / knowledge bases for the project. The
scientific programmer will also assist in developing and managing web
tools/sites using various technologies including Java/J2EE (JSF, Spring,
Hibernate, Tomcat), the plone/zope framework and assorted CGI scripts.
Experience using SQL relational databases is required.

A main focus of the project involves the collation and integration of
neuroanatomical information in the extant literature into a comprehensive
database. Knowledge of or strong interest in text mining and natural
language processing / computational linguistics would be greatly preferred.
Experience with text-search libraries (e.g. Apache Lucene and related APIs)
and related tools would be beneficial.

This person will also provide support for administration of our computer
infrastructure, including multiple Linux-based servers.

Candidates should have an MS or PhD in computer science (or equivalent
training). Programming experience with a good subset of Java, MATLAB, Perl
or Python languages is desired. Candidates with an active interest in
neuroscience will have an opportunity to participate in the scientific
aspects of the project.

This position will be based at CSHL with attractive benefits packages. To
apply, please send a letter of interest and current CV via email to Sandra
Michelsen (michelsecshl.edu). Please mention the 'Brain Architecture
Project' in the subject.

Application Deadline: Open until filled.
