Jobs: Lang Technology: Researcher, Max Planck Institute for Psycholing

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.

Early Stage Researcher positions at MPI.

The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics (MPI) invites applications
for an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) position as research scholar (PhD) in
language technology (linguistic infrastructures, interoperability,
standards and semantic web).

The 3-year position involve 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
7thFramework Programme. Also see:

- http://clara.uib.no/
- http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/

The specific position involves participation in the CLARA sub project
Designing and Testing Common Infrastructures, which is lead by the MPI. The
overall aim of the sub project is the design of the next generation of
common language resource infrastructures and its advanced components on
which future linguistic research will be based.

The successful candidate will be offered enrollment in a PhD program at a
related university. The candidate will be given joint PhD supervision by
the MPI and academic staff at the related university.

Applicants should hold a strong university degree (Masters/diploma or
equivalent) which would entitle them to embark on a PhD project in a
relevant discipline, and should be in the first four years of their
research careers. Students who are completing their master's degree during
the current semester, with the intention of starting the doctoral position
in the summer semester 2010, are also invited to apply. The qualifying
education must be completed before enrollment in the PhD programme. We
expect the successful applicant to take up their ESR position with
immediate effect.

The salary of an ESR position is roughly EUR 27,000 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).
There is a budget to cover participation costs, such as attendance at CLARA
events abroad. Women are particularly encouraged to apply.

For further information about the available position (including salary
enquiries) and project, please contact Jacquelijn Ringersma.

Applications should be submitted via e-mail to Jacquelijn Ringersma:

Application Deadline: 31-Jul-2010
