Research Scientist/PostDoc – Scalable Methods for Ontological Reasoning using
High Performance Computing with Applications to Healthcare

This is a 2 year contract position to develop scalable methods for
ontological reasoning with applications to health care. Strong
implementation skills are required; ideally the candidate will demonstrate
proficiency in high performance computing methodologies, in strategies for
(automated) reasoning, and in ontology development (though proficiency in
some and commitment to developing proficiency in the other may be
acceptable). Case studies will involve very large ontologies for health
care. The candidate will have the opportunity to work with researchers in an
interdisciplinary 6 year R&D project led by Dr. Wendy MacCaull, at StFX
University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, carried out in collaboration with
industry partners and the local health authority (see www.logic.stfx.ca). 

This position is partially supported by the ACEnet/Oracle Research
Collaboration Program which has the goal of reducing barriers to the
efficient, effective, and widespread use of the ACEnet Research Computing
Platform through the creation of innovative open source grid, middleware, or
web/portaltechnologies.

Qualifications: PhD in appropriate area or MSc with 2-3 years experience in
theorem proving strategies. Excellent written and oral skills in English.

Salary: $44,500 per year (plus medical and dental benefits and a funding
allowance for conference presentations). Second year funding is contingent
on satisfactory performance during the first year.

To apply: Send a 1 page Letter of Application describing how you fit the
requirements of this position to Wendy MacCaull at wmaccaul@stfx.ca Include
as attachments:
(1) A detailed CV; 
(2) Names and contact information for 3 references (names, addresses, e-mail
addresses and phone numbers); 
(3) Copies of recent publications and/or detailed descriptions of projects
and previous experience. 
Use as the subject: Methods for Scalable Ontological Reasoning.  We will
begin reviewing applications on August 2nd, 2010 and hope to have the
successful candidate in place by September/October 2010.
