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 for 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 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 for details on the group.
