The Group in Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing at the
University of Michigan is seeking a postdoctoral researcher. Candidates should
have previous experience in relevant areas of Computer Science. We are
particularly interested in candidates with prior research experience in
statistical NLP, including parsing, language modeling, summarization, question
answering, generation, and machine translation.
The university of Michigan is located in Ann Arbor, MI, 25 miles from Detroit
Metropolitan Airport which has hundreds of direct flights to the USA, Canada,
Asia, and Europe. Ann Arbor, population 110,000, is a diverse college town, with
a large selection of cultural and athletic facilities.
Our group is a cooperative effort involving Computer Science, Linguistics, and
the School of Information, and drawing on the many resources in Computer,
Cognitive, and Information Science at this university. We also have strong
connections to the Program in Bioinformatics. The core members of the group
include Steven Abney, Dragomir Radev, and Richmond Thomason.
We are seeking an energetic, independent person with excellent communication
skills. As well as independent cooperative research, duties will involve
coordinating and developing new research proposals. High proficiency in the
following areas will be particularly valuable: programming; theoretical computer
science, mathematics, and statistics; technical writing in English.
The two-year position carries a starting salary of $48,000, with fringe
benefits. There is some flexibility in starting time for this position, but
