Description:

Applications are invited for an anticipated postdoctoral position at
Northwestern University in the area of computational modeling of the lexicon
in many different languages. The postdoctoral fellow will work with linguistics
professor Janet Pierrehumbert as a member of an interdisciplinary team
that includes outstanding computer scientists and electrical engineers at four other
American research institutions. The Northwestern component of the
collaborative project will focus on novel methods for bootstrapping lexical
networks from sparse statistical samples. The ideal candidate will have a
Ph.D in computational linguistics, EECS, applied mathematics, physics, or a
related field, and the demonstrated ability to create and document robust
software. Familiarity with C, Python and Unix/Linux environments are a plus.

Negotiable start date in early 2012. Competitive salary scale comparable to
postdoctoral positions in computer science. Initial appointment for one year
with renewal subject to performance and availability of funding. Please apply
by email with a statement of research interests and a CV including the names
and contact information for three references. Send the application to:
linguisticsnorthwestern.edu using the subject line: Pierrehumbert postdoc
Consideration of applications will begin on December 10, 2011, and will
continue until the position has been filled.

Northwestern is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and applications are
encouraged from all qualified junior researchers. Hiring is contingent on
eligibility to work in the United States. Non-US-residents will receive
consideration for the position.

Application Deadline: 10-Dec-2011 (Open until filled)
