Postdoc Position in the Language and Inference Technology group
Institute for Logic, Language and Computation
Universiteit van Amsterdam
The Language and Inference Technology group at the University of
Amsterdam is searching for highly motivated candidates with a PhD
in computer science, computational linguistics, or a related
discipline, for a postdoc position. The ideal candidate has a
working knowledge of linguistics and experience with applications
that demand natural language processing capabilities. He or she
has a strong orientation towards empirical and applied research,
with system development and evaluation forming an integral part
of his/her research activities. Research experience in machine
learning or statistical modeling techniques is essential.
Applicants should have a demonstrated capacity or potential to
conduct research. Further desirable criteria include: relevant
industrial experience; a record of project-based work; ability to
supervise and inspire PhD students.
This position is funded by the Netherlands Organization for
Scientific Research and the Universiteit van Amsterdam, as part
of the `Pionier' project `Computing with Meaning.' This is an
interdisciplinary project aimed at identifying meaningful
information in natural language texts. Please consult
more information about the project.
The position is renewable for up to 4.5 years. While the
position is a research position, candidates are expected to play
an active role in supervising PhD students. In addition,
candidates may be asked to assist with courses related to their
research areas. The salary will be between 2056 Euros and 3802
Euros, gross per month. Knowledge of Dutch is not a
prerequisite, and candidates can be of any nationality. The
starting date is June 1, 2002 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Anyone interested in this position is invited to contact Maarten
de Rijke at email@example.com. Applicants should submit an
application letter together with a full resume including a list
of publications, a statement of research interests, and the names
and email addresses of at least three references to the same
address by March 15, 2002.
Research interests within the Language and Inference Technology
group range from automated reasoning, constraint programming,
satisfability checking, and formal verification to digital
libraries, information retrieval, parsing technologies,
computational syntax and semantics, question answering and
knowledge engineering. The group is strongly internationally
oriented, and currently consists of nearly 25 people. Please
consult http://www.illc.uva.nl/LIT/ for details on the group.
