Lecturer in Computational Linguistics (0.7 FTE)

Job description:
The Department of Languages, Literature and Communication of Utrecht
University invites applications from lecturers in Computational
Linguistics/Natural Language Processing. We offer a 0.7 FTE position for one
year which may be extended for one year conditional on positive evaluation.
The position starts August 1, 2018, and will be in the Linguistics section of
the Department, with all teaching done as part of the Artificial Intelligence
teaching programme.

We are looking for excellent candidates working in the field of Computational
Linguistics, especially for candidates who specialize in models connecting
statistical NLP with formal language theories (computational linguistics,
formal syntax and semantics, computational phonology, mathematical
linguistics, computational lexicons, computational psycholinguistics).
Accordingly, proven expertise in both linguistic theories and in statistical
NLP will be a strong advantage. The candidate will be expected to have
teaching experience in one or more of the above mentioned domains.

Your teaching obligations will be in the area of Natural Language Processing,
Mathematical and Computational Linguistics and Language Technology. Additional
teaching areas, depending on your expertise, may include Formal Linguistics,
Artificial Grammar learning, Statistics, Machine Learning and Data Mining.

- teaching experience in areas relevant to Computational Linguistics/Natural
Language Processing;
- a finished PhD and publications at an internationally recognised level;
specialization in statistical computational models that make use of formal
language theories, or are used in psycholinguistic modelling;
- experience in teaching at the Bachelor and Master levels;
- good communication skills;
- University Teaching Qualification (Dutch Basiskwalificatie Onderwijs, BKO)
or equivalent. Candidates lacking this qualification will be expected to
follow the BKO programme available within the Faculty.

We offer a temporary position (0.7 FTE) for two years.
