Topic: Discovering Extraction Rules for annotating corpus

Knowledge discovery in bio-medical texts is a big challenge due to the
large amount and variety of texts. The GREYC laboratory has performed a
variety of research on data mining, natural language processing and
extraction information (EI). This work proposes a promising
cross-fertilization of NLP and machine learning and data mining techniques
on biomedical texts. About NLP, automatically acquiring and discovering
extraction rules is a key point for parsing and annotating text collections
which are indefinitely updated and continually grow. About data mining, the
goal is to design new text mining methods for taking account textual

Main features of the work include:
* using and adapting data mining methods for learning extraction rules;
* designing a method for semantic annotation of corpus;
* developing an interface for information retrieval from texts.

* Profile

The applicant should have a Ph.D degree in Computer Science with background
in Natural Language Processing or data mining or machine learning.

* Place, duration and remuneration

12 months contract (with a possible extension), starting from September 
Net salary:  1900 euros per month
The position requires working at GREYC (see address below).

* How to apply

Please apply as soon as possible. Screening of applications will begin 
immediately and continue until the position is filled.
