online literature. Of the three posts, the first is in the area of
document retrieval, the second is in the area of shallow and statistical
methods of Information Extraction and the third is in the area of
statistical/hybrid computational semantics. The fourth post explores
similar techniques but involves a variety of application domains.

Retrieval, Information Extraction, Shallow Text Processing, Computational
Semantics, Ontologies, Statistical NLP, Machine Learning. Experience with
XML is highly desirable, as well as good programming skills in one of the
following languages: C, C + +, Perl, Python, Java.
