The Department of Computational Linguistics at Heidelberg University announces
open positions for Computational Linguists. The openings are for two PhD
candidate researchers in the Computational Linguistics research group of Prof.
Dr. Anette Frank.
The Computational Linguistics Department at Heidelberg University hosts a
young and dynamic team conducting cutting-edge research in Natural Language
Processing. With three full professorships, a growing number of PhD students
and researchers the department is one of the important centres of
Computational Linguistics in Germany.
Research in the Computational Linguistics group focuses on corpus-based
statistical methods for semantic natural language processing. Topics include
multilingual lexical semantics and knowledge acquisition, discourse-level
semantic processing and NLP applications built upon these methods.
We are looking for young, enthousiastic researchers with a strong research
potential. Candidates should have interest or previous experience with
research in distributional semantics, discourse-level NLP processing or text
Prerequisites are a bachelor/masters/diploma degree in Computational
Linguistics or related fields. We expect a solid background in statistical NLP
methods, machine learning and corpus-linguistic analysis techniques, very good
programming skills, and demonstration of a clear research potential.
Candidates will actively participate in the joint ICL/HITS PhD program
‘Semantic Processing’ (http://www.cl.uni-heidelberg.de/semproc).
Salary: German scale TV-L 13 /2 (half-time position)
Duration: initially two years with possible extension
Starting date: October 1st, 2013
The positions involve two hours of teaching per term in the department’s
Computational Linguistics Bachelor and Master Programs, and participation in
administrative duties. Next to English, a good command of German is required.
Applications should be sent to applications at cl.uni-heidelberg.de and include a
motivation letter including a statement of research and teaching interests,
CV, copy of degree certificate and study transcript, list of publications, as
well as names of references. All applications sent by June 7, 2013 will
receive full consideration. The positions are open until filled.
The University of Heidelberg is an equal opportunity employer.
Application Deadline: 07-Jun-2013
