[Elsnet-list] 3-6 month internship at European Bioinformatics Insititute
mcentyre at ebi.ac.uk
Wed Feb 23 13:26:28 CET 2011
We have an opening for an intern to work on characterising citation networks and citation behaviour in the biomedical domain.
The H-index is a measure of the sustained scientific impact of an individual researcher. We would like to develop an H-index calculator based on the UK PubMed Central citation network, and then explore the possibility of extending the network to include data resources as well as data depositions at the EBI. In doing so, the project will have to address issues such as author name disambiguation, self-citation and social trends within the biomedical domain, such as papers with large numbers of authors.
Placement duration 3-6 months
Contact Jo McEntyre; mcentyre at ebi.ac.uk
Deadline for applications 31 March
Special requirements Experience in Java development would be a plus, but not essential.
