Jobs: Computational Ling: Post Doc, U Groningen

Editor for this issue: Ann Sawyer <sawyerlinguistlist.org>

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. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Two Postdocs in Computational Linguistics

Faculty of Arts/Center for Language and Cognition Groningen (CLCG)
announces the following two postdoc positions.

- one two-year postdoc in co-reference resolution (vacancy number 205138).
- one three-year postdoc in information retrieval on handwritten documents
(vacancy number 205150)

Co-reference Resolution (vacancy 205138)

Coreference resolution is a key ingredient for the automatic interpretation
of text. The project is part of the Stevin-initiative of the Dutch and
Flemish government, and will be carried out in collaboration with the
Language Technology Group of the University of Antwerp and Language and
Computing NV.

A full project description is available through the site listed below. Dr.
G.Bouma (gosse at let.rug.nl) will coordinate the Corea project. He may be
contacted for further information.

IR for Handwritten Documents (vacancy 205150)

This postdoc will work in a team with a PhD researcher (Artificial
Intelligence, Groningen) and a scientific programmer (National Archives,
The Hague) to develop a system (Scratch) supporting the search for
information in handwritten documents. A more complete description of the
project is available through the site listed below. The goal of the project
is to apply methods of stochastic grammar modeling to support free text
retrieval methods in a test bed of scans of handwritten material.

John Nerbonne (nerbonne at let.rug.nl) and Gertjan van Noord (vannoord at
let.rug.nl) will supervise the postdoc in this position. Lambert Schomaker
(schomaker at ai.rug.nl) is the head of the project involving this postdoc,
the PhD student in pattern recognition, and the scientific programmer.

Your profile (both positions)

- a PhD in Computational Linguistics, Artificial Intelligence, Computer
science or in a related field
- research experience including relevant publications
- able to work independently
- willingness to learn Dutch (in the case of the co-reference resolution
project, a passive knowledge is minimally required).
