ideally suited for Ph.D. candidates who want to pursue a dissertation
project on the application of machine learning techniques in
computational linguistics. The successfull applicant will be expected
to work 50 % of a full-time appointment on project duties, with the
remaining work hours available for independent Ph.D. research.

The position is at the rank of "Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter"
(M.A. or equivalent degree required). The salary is determined by the
