Two Research Fellows in Text Mining, National Centre for Text Mining, School of Computer Science, University of Manchester


We are looking for two senior researchers in text mining to work for a new project at the National Centre for Text Mining ( <http://www.nactem.ac.uk/> www.nactem.ac.uk) in text mining. The aim of the project is to provide text mining and semantic search facilities for Phase 3 of UK PubMed Central (UKPMC). UKPMC was launched in January 2007, by a consortium of the British Library, University of Manchester and the EBI and aims to support biomedical research in the UK and worldwide by offering innovative services to scientists based on state of the art technology. 

The successful candidates will customise NaCTeM's text mining tools and services for improved information retrieval and information extraction (entity recognition, fact extraction) from full texts. The successful candidates will be part of a strong and dynamic team in bio-text mining located at the National Centre for Text Mining which is hosted by the School of Computer Science and the Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre ( <http://www.mib.ac.uk/> http://www.mib.ac.uk).

The posts are available from 1st September 2008 for a period of 36 months.  The successful candidates will be appointed at a Research Fellow level.


Essential skills: a PhD and a good first degree in an area relevant to text mining as well as excellent software engineering skills. The ability to develop algorithms and software for NLP/TM systems and to produce experiments for text mining applications using large data sets.  Excellent knowledge of natural language processing/text mining using machine learning techniques and in particular named entity recognition, parsing, information extraction; excellent knowledge of C, C++, Java, XML, Windows, Linux and Web Services. A strong publication record and experience with biomedical text mining would be an advantage.


Closing date for applications: 28/08/08
