The American Psychological Association (APA) is looking for a Taxonomist to be responsible for the ongoing development, revision, and maintenance of APA’s controlled vocabulary/taxonomy (Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms), which is used primarily to index APA’s electronic research databases.

The taxonomist will be responsible for initiating and executing plans for semantic content enrichment processes to support continuous improvement of existing products, product line extensions, and new product development to create new streams of revenue to support the mission of APA and its directorates.

The taxonomist sets the direction for taxonomy content as well as all metrics to measure its value. The taxonomist collaborates with the OPD management group and the machine aided indexing specialist to develop indexing tools to promote effective application of index terms that result in more precise retrieval for end users.
