The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, 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.

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work on a cross-disciplinary

research project on the connexions between linguistics and natural language
processing, with a strong epistemological and historical perspective.

The goal of the project is
to investigate how concepts and methods can be
transferred from semantic theories to natural language processing systems,
in order to determine to which distorsions theories are submitted when
transformed into applications.
A case study will be chosen in agreement with
the successful candidate. For example, in the case of Semantic Role
Labelling, it will be valuable to study the different steps between Fillmore's
theory, as presented in his 1968 paper, and its successive transformations
into a semantic resource, such as Frame Net and PropBank. Other case
studies might be chosen as well, such as DRT, etc.

Requirements : The candidate should have a PhD in linguistics,
computational linguistics, history of science or philosophy of language, with a
clear
interest for historical and epistemological aspects of linguistics and
NLP.


The candidate should send a CV, including the names and addresses
of two
academic referees, a list of publications and a covering letter outlining her/his
research interest, namely how the candidate envisions
the project and which
particular lines of research she/he intends to explore.
