The National Center for Biomedical Ontology (NCBO) is one of the seven  
National Centers for Biomedical Computing supported by the NIH  
Roadmap.  The NCBO is administered at Stanford University, with  
partners at the Mayo Clinic, the University at Buffalo, the University  
of Victoria, and UCSF.  The Center provides national technological  
infrastructure to support the creation, dissemination, and management  
of biomedical information and knowledge in machine-processable form.

The laboratory of Dr. Mark Musen, principal investigator of the NCBO,  
is seeking a highly motivated and independent post-doctoral trainee to  
conduct research projects at the interface of the life sciences and  
the Semantic Web.  The post-doc will be involved in ongoing  
collaborative work that concerns archiving, querying, and reasoning  
about biological data over the Web.

The ideal candidate will have a PhD in Biomedical informatics or  
Computer Science and an excellent publication record.  The position  
requires strong problem-solving skills and the ability to build  
software tools in Java. Applicants must possess excellent  
communication skills and be fluent in both spoken and written English.  
A background in molecular biology or medicine is highly desirable.  
Prior experience working with RDF stores, ontologies, or natural- 
language processing methods is preferred. This exciting work will be  
guided by multidisciplinary collaborations with top scientists at  
Stanford and with collaborating projects of the NCBO as well as with  
Health Care and Life Sciences interest group of the W3C.
