Job Rank: Post Doc

Specialty Areas: Computational Linguistics; Machine Translation; NLP


The Stanford Natural Language Processing Group is interested in hiring 1 or 2 new postdocs for the coming academic year and beyond. The postdocs will work together with other postdocs, graduate students, research staff, and faculty on exciting projects at the forefront of probabilistic and deep learning models of language and computational linguistics, involving large-scale, supervised, semi-supervised and unsupervised learning.

For these positions we are looking for candidates interested in working in conjunction with our DARPA-funded research projects on machine translation and natural language understanding. Research topics could include: syntax-based MT, semantics-based MT, applications of linguistic analysis or large scale optimization to MT, deep learning for NLP, textual similarity and entailment, coreference, relation extraction, or knowledge-base construction and inference.

Postdocs are initially a 1-year position, with good possibilities for extension to 2 or 3 years (depending on performance and continued funding).

The Stanford NLP Group is a fun, collaborative group providing many opportunities for learning, hands-on research and teamwork. The Stanford NLP Group values having a diverse mix of people and is committed to equal opportunity in employment; we are always pleased to identify anyone with great qualifications and promise.

Please apply by sending a cover letter and CV and arranging for 2 or more references to be sent to Christopher Manning (, preferably before the end of March.
