Hands on coding of NLP/ML/statistical algorithms is an absolute must.The data scientist will participate in the design, prototyping and implementation of TDM/ML and automation applications for our businesses. These applications have two main goals: cost savings by building workflow efficiencies or revenue generation by building front end features. You will work closely with both the nursing education and health sciences teams. Sample projects may include extracting medical information from electronic health care records, recommender systems for adaptive nursing and education, content enrichment pipelines for clinical decision support and search algorithms.You will also work closely with the EMMeT (Elsevier Medical Merged Taxonomy) team providing data analytics on EMMeT and related terminologies to support decision-making, designing automated approaches to bulk updates, ontology validation and terminology mappings, and will bring ML/NLP expertise to the team. You will work with a team of medical experts, as well as product leads to determine how to best build and leverage semantic capabilities. Knowledge of database query language (SQL) and scripting language (Python) are mandatory. Experience with Natural Language Processing application is necessary, and experience with medical terminologies such as UMLS, SNOMED CT, ICD-9, ICD-10, CPT, LOINC etc is a plus.Main Activities and ResponsibilitiesText and data miningBring active experience in to the organization on extraction text and data information from structured and unstructured data. Applying and developing these techniques, the data scientist will drive the implementation of automated indexing and annotation processes.
