Candidates are expected to hold a PhD in Computer Science, Information Science, Medical Informatics, or a related field. In addition, they are expected to have a very strong background in Natural Language Processing and Computational Linguistics, and demonstrate expert knowledge in machine learning and rule-based systems as applied to computational linguistics and natural language processing, as well as development and execution of annotation tasks with teams of experts. A track record of publications in top conferences, such as ACL, AAAI, and CoLing, and journals, such as CL and JAMIA, is a plus.
