A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Dr. Zhiyong Lu’s research group at the National Library of Medicine (NLM), starting in FY2019. Our laboratory is primarily interested in developing and applying computational approaches to biomedical text data, as well as medical images in recent years. Our research has focused on: 1) Improving information access to biomedical literature (e.g. PubMed’s Best Match relevance search and PubMed Labs); 2) Text mining assisted knowledge discovery & biocuration (e.g. PubTator; LitVar, BioCreative challenge tasks), and 3) Machine learning for medical image analysis (e.g. ChestX-ray8; DeepSeeNet). The successful applicant will build and apply new methods to such research problems and also have the opportunity to contribute to the improvement of the widely used NLM literature resources such as PubMed and PMC.

Qualifications: Applicants must have training with a strong emphasis on computation and familiarity with NLP & statistical methods in data and text mining and/or machine learning. A PhD degree or equivalent in bioinformatics, computer science, computational linguists or a closely related field is required. Strong programming and data analysis skills are essential. Applicants need not be US citizens or Permanent Residents.

Appointments are initially for two years, with the option of extension based on performance. Stipends are commensurate with research experience and education.

To apply: please submit your curriculum vitae and the names of three referees to Dr. Lu at Zhiyong.Lu@nih.gov or at the address below. Applications will be evaluated as they are received until the position is filled.
