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.

Description:

Experienced Researcher position at MPI

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

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/;
http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/).

The specific position involves participation in the CLARA subproject
Multimedia and Multimodal Communication Modeling, which is a cooperation
between the MPI and Københavns Universitet (UCPH). The overall aim of the
subproject is the creation of multimedia and multimodal resources and
advanced 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.

Applicants should hold a university degree (Masters/diploma or equivalent
with additional four years of research experience or a PhD), and should be
within the first five years of their research careers. We expect the
successful applicant to take up the ER 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.

Women are particularly encouraged to apply.

For further information about the available position (including salary
enquiries) and project, please contact Thomas Koller at the email address
