Description:

We are looking for a postdoc to join our Deep Language Understanding
project led by Prasad Tadepalli, Tom Dietterich and Xiaoli Fern. The goal
of this DARPA-funded project is to infer facts, relationships, and events
that are not explicitly mentioned in text. Our approach combines rich
representations, models of the pragmatics of communication, and novel
machine learning and inference methods. Qualifications include a PhD in
computer science or related fields, and experience in natural language
processing such as parsing, coreference resolution, information extraction,
and semantic analysis. Experience with richer knowledge representations
such as first order logic, and statistical relational models and their use
in text processing is a plus. For more information about the project,
please see http://research.engr.oregonstate.edu/dral/

Oregon State University (OSU) is one of the premier places for AI research
with 10 faculty members who have active research programs in planning,
machine learning, computer vision, robotics and related areas and a number
of projects funded by NSF, DARPA, ONR, ARO, and DOE. There are many
opportunities for collaboration within and across departments. Corvallis is
a university town known for its quality of life and intellectually
stimulating environment. OSU is an equal opportunity and affirmative action
employer.

Interested candidates should send their vita to the application email
