Open PhD position at Computer Science Dept. of the Vrije Universiteit

Project: Living Guidelines in Medical Care

Medical guidelines ensure that clinical practice is maximally effective, but they often lag behind the state-of-the-art. This project intends to speed up the update cycle of medical guidelines by the automatic collection and interpretation of evidence, both from hospital data and Medical Linked Open Data sets.  The project is carried out in close cooperation with medical practitioners.

This project is a collaboration between the Knowledge Representation and Reasoning group and the Business Informatics group.

We are looking for candidates with a background (master degree or equivalent) in either medical informatics or in computer science/artificial intelligence, and have an outspoken interest in the medical domain. Since the medical guidelines in question are available only in Dutch, proficiency in this language is a very strong advantage, but not a strict requirement. Experience with data modelling (linked data) and data analysis techniques, in particular process mining, is considered as another advantage.

This position is fully funded for 4 years. See the vacancy link for details.

Applicants are requested to write a letter in which they describe their abilities and motivation, accompanied by a curriculum vitae and two or three references (names and e-mail addresses).

Applications should be sent by email to [hidden email] before 15 September 2016. Please mention the vacancy number (16194) in the e-mail header.
