ContentMine is a scholarly assistant for the 21st Century - we’re a team of researchers and developers building an open source pipeline for mining facts from the scientific literature: from genes to species, diseases to chemicals. We’re looking for early adopters who want to fast forward their literature-based research and extract information from thousands of papers for collation, analysis and release as open data. If you have a research project that involves manually searching through thousands of documents, we could help!
In this first round, we will support up to five fellows for six months to work on research projects related to the life sciences. Anyone is welcome to apply with an interesting idea to explore using the scientific literature and a basic set of programming skills. We welcome and encourage applicants from outside academia.
Fellows will receive a £1000 grant and support for their project from the ContentMine team - for more details and to apply by 3 June 2016 see https://contentmining.wordpress.com/2016/04/27/announcing-contentmine-fellowships/.
