Title: Software Developer/Research Assistant (2 year post) for R&D in
the area of Semantic Web in Life Sciences

 

The Health Care and Life Sciences (HCLS) at the Digital Enterprise
Research Institute (DERI: http://www.deri.ie/
<https://staffmail.nuigalway.ie/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://www.der
i.ie/> ) of the National University of Ireland, Galway invites
applications for a research assistant position. 

 

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. 

 

Responsibilities

The DERI HCLS group has embarked on an ambitious European FP7 project
which uses semantic web technologies to enable sharing and collaboration
between life scientists in cancer chemoprevention. The successful
candidate will participate in the creation of a semantic web enabled
platform to help cancer chemoprevention researchers share and discover
novel chemical agents that prevent cancer. 

 

Duration of the position

2 years

 

Qualifications

Candidates should have the following:

 

*         Knowledge of Semantic Technologies such as Linked Data, RDF,
SPARQL 

*         Knowledge of Web Service technologies

*         Experience with Java, PHP, Python and/or JavaScript

 

Candidates should also have one of the following:

 

*         Previous experience with Biomedical Ontologies, in specific
NCBO

*         Previous work with wet lab /bench researchers; knowledge about
biomedical databases, commonly used biological UI (genome browsers,
clustering tools) and commonly used Bioinformatics tools (BLAST,
CLUSTAL-W,etc)

*         Experience with Natural Language Processing tools, preferably
with extraction from PDF

 

This is an excellent opportunity to broaden your skills into the rapidly
growing area of semantic web and linked data technologies. 

 

The HCLS Unit at DERI combines both technical (linked data/semantic web
technologies) and domain (life sciences) expertise, and is looking for a
candidate eager to combine these two through formal scientific work,
design, and implementation, with hands-on evaluation with life
scientists.

 

Please send your application (CV, two letters of reference) in PDF
format to the email address below - by June 15th, 2011
