Jobs: Multimedia/Multimodality Resources & Tech: Researcher, Max Planck

Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.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 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.

Specialty Areas: Multimedia and Multimodality Resources and Technology


The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen (Netherlands)
invites applications for a position as Experienced Researcher (ER) in
Multimedia and Multimodality Resources and Technology.

Application deadline: 30. April 2010. Candidates who have already applied
for this position in February 2010 need not reapply.

The 2-year position involves participation in the EU project CLARA - Common
Language Resources and their Applications, which is a Marie Curie Initial
Training Network receiving funding from the European Commission's 7th
Framework Programme (cf. http://clara.uib.no/;

The specific position involves participation in the CLARA subproject
Multimedia and Multimodal Communication Modeling, which is a cooperation
between the Technical Group at the MPI and KĂžbenhavns Universitet (UCPH).
The overall aim of the subproject is the creation of multimedia and
multimodal resources and advanced software based processing components in
order to study human communicative behavior empirically. This will require
the design and development of new types of speech and/or video processing
modules and of adequate annotation schemes. The projects at the MPI and at
UCPH will complement each other.

The successful applicant will be familiar and comfortable with the design
and development of software in high-level programming languages and the use
of well-known digital signal processing techniques and packages.

Applicants should hold a university degree (Masters/diploma or equivalent
with additional four years of research experience or a PhD), and must be
within the first five years of their research careers (calculated - in
full-time equivalents - since being awarded the degree which allows to
embark on a PhD, i.e. these 5 years include your PhD period!). We expect
the successful applicant to take up the position as soon as possible.

The salary is roughly EUR 53,000 per year. The income is taxable and all
compulsory deductions under national law will be made. There are additional
mobility and travel allowances (yearly allowance) as well as a career
exploratory allowance. There is a budget to cover participation costs, such
as attendance at CLARA events abroad. There is an intention to continue the
work after the 2-years CLARA project phase.

Women are particularly encouraged to apply.

For further information about the available position (including salary
enquiries) and project, please contact Thomas Koller, thomas.kollermpi.nl
