motivated Research Assistant in Computer Science.Description
Efficient strategies for accessing biomedical contents are crucial for the
timely transfer of correct information from the scientific research
community to peer investigators and interested individuals. Even though
valuable information is embedded in online biomedical contents, it remains
opaque to information retrieval and knowledge extraction search engines. It

developing information systems using machine learning and semantic web
technologies is a plus.
