The Department of Translation and Philology at Universitat Pompeu
Fabra (UPF) in Barcelona, Spain, offers a research position in
Computational Linguistics and Machine Translation within the "Ramon y
Cajal" program.

international researchers to Spanish universities and other research
centres for an initial period of four years. The application and
selection processes are handled directly by MCYT. Applicants must have
a PhD, present a high-level research program and obtain the
endorsement of the research unit they wish to join. Applications are
reviewed by specific committees in each field. The position in the
