About the project

To empower scientists and radically improve how science is published, evaluated and disseminated to researchers, innovators and the public, we have built our own state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence Review Assistant (AIRA). Data is at the heart of AIRA in the form of AIRA Knowledge – a rich graph of academic knowledge such as scientific publications, citation relationships between those publications, as well as authors, institutions and fields of research. This serves as the basis of all the AI/ML models used by our reviewer recommendation service and our quality checks.

We are now looking for a passionate Data Engineering Team Lead to join our growing team and help us evolve AIRA Knowledge.
