Job Title: Postdoctoral Associate / Substitute Professor

Specialty Areas: Computational Linguistics


The research group of Foundations of Computational Linguistics [1] at IMS, Stuttgart University, is looking to fill a temporary position as a Postdoctoral Associate, with the option of an extension as a Substitute Professor (Lehrstuhlvertretung).

The postdoctoral associate position is available for a starting date in October/November/December 2015 and can run until 31 December 2016, with payment according to the German TV-L pay scale (TV-L 13 100%; see [2] for details). The substitute professor position is envisaged for the winter semester 2016/17 (1 October 2016 through 31 March 2017, at the level of W3 for suitably qualified candidates).

The postdoctoral position is a departmental position, which means that the person can conduct independent research and will typically have a teaching load of two 90-minute courses during the semester, contributing to our BSc and MSc programs in Natural Language Processing/Computational Linguistics. Prerequisite is a doctoral degree in computational linguistics, computer science, or a related field. The ideal candidate will contribute to one of the focus areas in our research group (cf. [1]), e.g., parsing, co-reference resolution, Digital Humanities, bringing in substantial previous knowledge of state-of-the-art Natural Language Processing methods and a thorough understanding of the underlying linguistic issues. Knowledge of German is an advantage.


Please send applications (in PDF format, including CV, an outline of research experience, as well as names and addresses of up to three references) by email to Jonas Kuhn (email below), using the email subject "postdoc application". Applications received by 15 September 2015 will receive full consideration, although interviews may start at any time and will continue until the position has been filled.

The University of Stuttgart is an equal opportunity employer. Applications of women are strongly encouraged. Severely challenged persons will be given preference in case of equal qualifications.
