Research Assistant
Information Retrieval and Semantic Technologies

Department of Computing Science
Faculty of Information and Mathematical Sciences

Salary £23,002 - £25,889

REF No: 13170/DPO/A3

Large collaborative scientific projects (particularly in astronomy 
and particle physics) require users to search for information located 
in distributed stores, described using various distinct metadata models.

This multidisciplinary project aims to apply established AI and 
Knowledge Engineering work, including Data Mining and Semantic 
Technologies, to develop a novel peer-to-peer solution to this 
problem. The work will extend the successful Terrier information 
retrieval platform (http://ir.dcs.gla.ac.uk/terrier  ) and its 
corresponding tools, developed at the University of Glasgow, with 
semantic web tools and techniques.

The candidate will be responsible for implementation, and driving 
standardisation in the appropriate forums in the context of an EPSRC 
project (EP/E01142X/1). The post is available for 18 months in the 
first instance.

Salary £23,002 - £25,889

REF No: 13171/DPO/A3

The researcher will be responsible for the development of information 
retrieval and data mining techniques on large-scale biomedical texts. 
Specifically, you will be required to develop appropriate distributed 
retrieval techniques for biomedical texts (under the direction of the 
investigators), implement retrieval techniques on OCR documents, 
develop retrieval techniques to identify relevant passages in a 
document, and develop data mining techniques to highlight useful 
information from these passages, with the intention to facilitate the 
population of a database, implement a number of demonstrator systems 
and conduct evaluations of the system.

The work will be implemented on top of the state-of-the-art Terrier 
information retrieval platform (http://ir.dcs.gla.ac.uk/terrier   ). 
It will be done within the context of a collaborative European 
project (SIMAP). This post is available for 18 months in the first instance.
