3 POSTS IN TEXT MINING - BOOTSTRAPPING OF ONTOLOGIES AND TERMINOLOGIES -
University of Manchester, School of Informatics
 
Three researchers (one Research Fellow and two Research Associates) are
required for an EC 6th Framework Information Society Technologies
collaborative project entitled Bootstrapping  of Ontologies and
Terminologies, from the 1st April 2006. The project aims at building
reusable wide-coverage lexical, conceptual and factual knowledge
resources for the biology domain, to support text mining. This involves
both exploiting existing terminological resources and automatically
acquiring new terms and concepts and associated linguistic information
from the vast amount of literature.

The successful candidates will be part of the growing team of
researchers associated with both the National Centre for Text Mining
(http://www.nactem.ac.uk) which is hosted by the School of Informatics
and the Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre (http://www.mib.ac.uk).

Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent research experience in
Computer Science with emphasis in text mining or a related topic.
Candidates should also have a good working knowledge of natural language
processing, machine learning techniques and ontologies.  Applicants for
the research fellow post should be able to demonstrate ability to lead
research teams and should have a strong publication record.

Informal enquiries should be made to Dr Sophia Ananiadou, on +44 (0)161
306 3092 or email Sophia.Ananiadou at manchester.ac.uk
