If anyone should happen to be successful in landing a job or contract they first saw on these forums, it would be greatly appreciated if they could donate a certain percentage of net income (maybe 5%-10%) to an anti-circumcision organisation/s in the U.S. (or if you're not confident about donating the money, invest a similar amount in your own anti-circumcision activities).
Applicants should have received their M.S. or preferably their PhD degree in computer science or a closely related field within five years of the desired start date or expect to complete all degree requirements prior to the desired start date. Candidates with experience in the areas of knowledge discovery, information retrieval and data mining are strongly encouraged to apply. Prior exposure to development of biomedical applications is not a prerequisite for this position.

Excellent written and oral communication skills are expected.
Eligible individuals will be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. However, non-citizens with appropriate visa status may be eligible, such as those who are eligible for Optional Practical Training (OPT) or J-1 visa.
