================================================================  

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use
non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge
that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity,
nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we
have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding
employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international
employment page http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set 
up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Description:

Announcing an opening in the area of Data-Driven Machine Translation at the
National Centre for Language Technology in the School of Computing, Dublin
City University, Ireland.

Excellent knowledge of Example-Based or Statistical approaches to MT is a
prerequisite. The successful candidate will be a strong programmer, have a
track record in machine learning, and have a good publication record in
this field. Experience of participation in large-scale open evaluations
(NIST, IWSLT etc.) would be a distinct advantage.

Remuneration will be at the rate of EUR 43,000 per annum. The position is
open from 1st August 2007. A contract of one or two years will be awarded.

We currently have Postgraduate Researchers in the following areas:

- new automatic evaluation metrics for MT
- integrating syntax into SMT
- new methods of word and phrase alignment
- parameter estimation in data-driven MT
- sign language translation
- tree-based translation
- hybrid data-driven MT

Two large-scale proposals are currently under review, which will bring in
more MT students.

Candidates should send their CV (in .pdf format, only) to the email address
given below as soon as possible and by June 30th at the latest. Questions
or other clarification should be emailed to the same address.

We look forward to welcoming you to our growing MT team!
