Job: Postdoc position on biomedical text mining

A postdoc position is available in the Cellular Network Biology group at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR). The group focuses on network-based analysis of proteins and their posttranslational modifications in the context of cellular signaling and disease. The postdoc will work on development of advanced methods for protein-centric text mining of large corpora, including combining efficient dictionary-based named entity-recognition with conditional random fields and classification based on word embedding. The resulting improved methods will in collaboration with other group members be integrated into STRING and related databases/tools, and the software will be made available under open licenses.

Candidates must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent) within a relevant discipline and have strong programming experience. The successful candidates will have strong qualifications or experience within several of the following areas:

  • Text mining
  • Bioinformatics / computational biology
  • Machine learning
  • Statistical data mining
  • Biomedical ontologies
  • Programming in Python and/or C++
