Research Assistant (RA) Position: Semantic Web in HealthCare and Life
Sciences 

DERI - National University of Ireland, Galway

 

DERI is a leading research institute in semantic technologies that
offers a stimulating, dynamic and multi-cultural research environment,
excellent ties to research-groups worldwide, close collaboration with
industrial partners and up-to-date infrastructure and resources. 

 

The DERI HCLS group (http://hcls.deri.ie/) has a focus on applied
research in the use of semantics in solving some key healthcare problems
and dealing with: 

*	Interoperability of Electronic Healthcare Records (EHRs).
*	Interoperability of distributed healthcare policies.
*	Infrastructure which will scale to the thousands, and, in some
environments millions, of patients who will avail of telehealth in the
future.
*	Secure infrastructure which accounts for the ownership of
patient data, the privacy and dignity of the patient, and which allows
the patient play a part in managing his/her chronic illness.

 

This will involve research into HCLS ontologies and standards (e.g.,
HL7, openEHR) within the area of healthcare messaging, patient modelling
and distributed personal health records. Research in the DERI HCLS
research group is carried out in close collaboration with other
collaborating institutions and industrial partners.

 

Candidates should have:

 

*	A graduate degree in Computer Science/ Software Engineering or
related fields.
*	Knowledge of Semantic Web Technologies (RDF, SPARQL, OWL).
*	Knowledge of healthcare standards (e.g., HL7, openEHR) is a plus
but not a mandatory requirement. 

 

Successful candidates are expected to have the willingness to combine
formal scientific work with hands-on evaluation with healthcare
providers.

 

Please send your application (CV, two letters of reference) in PDF
format to the email address below - by Friday, February 3rd, 2012
