Editor for this issue: Bethany Townsend <bethanylinguistlist.org>


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:

The Linguistics Center of the University of Lisbon is seeking to integrate
in its SKAi (Sources, Knowledge and Modelling) group two post-doctoral
research fellows, specialized in Computational Linguistics or Computer
Science to develop and improve new and existing resources combining NLP and
statistics. Both positions have a maximal duration of five years.

The work to be accomplished by the 2 post-doctoral fellows aims at
implementing infrastructures for the existing Linguistic Resources, which
should converge toward new applications and paths for corpus-based
approaches and primary sources exploitations. The ultimate goal is to
attain international high-quality standards in this field.

The work involves tasks such as:
- Developing human language technology applications, including market
research and evaluation, planning, overseeing activities related to
development and programming;
- Developing an integrated infrastructure for large-scale resources and
other corpora and lexicons, assuring their availability;
- Participation in customizing, further developing and creating linguistic
relational databases;
- Establishing automatic processes of information extraction;
- Application of statistical NLP tasks;
- Development of corpus annotation systems.

Requirements:
- PhD degree in Computational Linguistics or in Computer Science;
- Strong background in computational linguistics and linguistics
(preferential);
- Knowledge about Natural Language Processing and corpus-based methods;
- Experience with statistical NLP techniques;
- Demonstrated proficiency in Portuguese (preferential) and in English;
- Strong programming experience (Perl, Python, Java, C/C++);
- Good working knowledge of SQL.
- Three years of postdoctoral experience (preferential).
