Subject: Research Programmer - Biomedical Knowledge Engineering Project

The Intelligent Systems Division is establishing a group to address research questions concerned with biomedical knowledge engineering by working in close collaboration with local ISI-based experts (specializing in Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Ontologies, Logic and Knowledge Acquisition, Networking & Grid Computing) and with biomedical specialists from the rich research community at USC (based in the neuroscience, computational biology and medical communities at USC).

We are seeking an individual to act as primary programmer within this research group. Our immediate goals center around the NeuroScholar and NeuARt II systems (see http://www.neuroscholar.org/). Immediate future developments will include the development of Natural Language Processing capabilities, coupled with the incorporation of scientific reasoning into our knowledge engineering approach. We are committed to developing systems that may be used by bench scientists and therefore are investigating the development of a tablet-based interface for use by biomedical scientists.

Qualifications: Master's Degree with one year experience required with minor in biology preferred. Expertise within both machine-learning and some field of biomedicine is essential (Neuroscience is preferred, but not required). Additional requirements include: experience with user interface design, ontologies, and natural language processing/machine learning; demonstrated creativity and innovation in solving conceptual programming problems; competent to work independently on complex programming. Other important qualities include: a strong commitment to research; good teamwork skills; high standards of productivity, innovation and impeccability; a demonstrated capability to produce working deployable systems.
