Description:

Two Scholarships available in the Natural Language Processing Group at EML
Research in Heidelberg, Germany (Reference No. 3/2007NLP)

Two scholarships (EUR 15.360/year, tax free) are available in the NLP group at
EML Research starting January 1st, 2008, or as soon as possible thereafter. The
possibility of pursuing a PhD can be arranged in cooperation with the University
of Heidelberg - assuming that all formal requirements are fulfilled.

The successful candidates will be working in projects dealing with mining and
creating lexical semantic resources and their use in NLP tasks such as
coreference resolution, relation extraction, and applications such as question
answering, automatic summarization, information extraction, textual entailment
(see the website listed above for our previous research on those topics).

Candidates should have a strong background in computational linguistics and
possess a Masters or a Diploma degree in either computational linguistics,
computer science or linguistics. Experience with machine learning and
corpus-based methods and knowledge about statistics is a plus. Strong Java
programming skills are required. The scholarships will be granted initially for
two years with the possibility for a one year extension after successful evaluation.

EML Research gGmbH is a private non-profit research laboratory dedicated to
basic and applied research in IT with a focus on bioinformatics and natural
language processing. The NLP group is an interdisciplinary research group that
works on applications in the area of discourse and dialogue, in particular
coreference resolution, lexical semantics, text generation, automatic
summarization, and knowledge extraction from semistructured input.

Applications Deadline: 31-Oct-2007
