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 at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Postdoctoral Research Associate in Language Processing
Vacancy Reference Number: 3009969

The School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh, invites applications
for a full-time, fixed term Research Associate position on the project
'Synchronous Linguistic and Visual Processing' funded by the European
Research Council. The aim of this project is to investigate the cognitive
processes that unfold when humans view a visual scene and listen to a
speech stimulus at the same time. The
project encompasses both experimental research using eye-tracking and
computational work using machine learning and probabilistic modeling. The
successful candidate will work as part of a team of experts in linguistic
and visual processing; he/she will design and implement models that capture
the alignment of linguistic and visual representations and evaluate them
against eye-tracking data.

You will have a Ph.D. in computational linguistics, computer science,
cognitive science, or a related discipline. You will have strong
programming skills and a background in natural language processing (e.g.,
language modeling, parsing, alignment methods, corpus processing, human
evaluation). Experience with machine learning and probabilistic modeling
techniques is essential.

This is a fixed position for three years, starting January 1, 2009 or as
soon as possible thereafter. The role is grade UE07 and attracts an annual
salary in the range of GBP 29,704 to GBP 35,469.

For further information please contact Dr. Frank Keller. Details about the
position, as well as an online application form, can be found at:
