The University of Potsdam, Faculty of Human Sciences, Department of Linguistics is seeking to fill the following position:

Academic Staff Member (Post-doctoral Researcher)
Requisition No.: 119/2014

The position will be part of the new DFG-funded project "Efficient statistical parsing and decoding for expressive grammar formalisms using tree automata” (along with a second position for a PhD
student). This project applies methods from automata theory to statistical parsing with grammar formalisms that are more expressive than PCFGs. It will be carried out at the University of Potsdam in close cooperation with Prof. Mark Johnson (Macquarie University) and Dr. Marco Kuhlmann (Linköping University), and will involve regular research visits to Australia and Sweden.

The position is for 40 hours per week. The salary scale is 13 TVL (Area East). A successful candidate should have proven expertise in statistical parsing, machine translation, computational semantics, automata theory, or a related topic, and should hold or be about to obtain a PhD in computational linguistics, computer science, or a related field.

Applications will be processed immediately. Work should ideally start no later than October 2014. The positions are limited to three years.

The computational linguistics group in Potsdam is part of the Department of Linguistics and the university's designated Area of Excellence in Cognitive Sciences. It provides a dynamic and
international research environment and maintains close ties with the departments of computer science and psychology. The department offers a BSc in Computational Linguistics and an MSc in Cognitive Systems, which is taught in English and covers computational linguistics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning.

The city of Potsdam is the historical residence of the Prussian kings and the German emperors. It is part of the Berlin metropolitan area, one of the cultural and scientific capitals of the world. The city of
Berlin is within commuting distance, and many researchers and students choose to live there. The region offers a high quality of urban life at very modest living costs.

The University of Potsdam strives to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and specifically encourages female applicants to apply for these positions.

Handicapped applicants will be given preference in case of equal suitability.

Please send your application (including the requisition number 119/2014) by 27 June 2014 to Prof. Alexander Kolle at the application email address below or the physical address below.
