The position starts in October 2012. Its duration is limited to two years, maybe with the possibility of an extension. It includes 4 hours of teaching per week in computational linguistics. Teaching is supposed to be in German, if not immediately, then after a short time. Therefore, if the candidate does not speak German yet, he/she should be willing to learn and practice it.
The candidate should preferably have some teaching experience and should be willing to participate in the research activities conducted at the Department for Computational Linguistics. These cover the following areas:
1. data-driven parsing 2. statistical machine translation 3. syntax-semantics interface, in particular (but not limited to)
frame-based (i.e., feature-structure-based) semantic composition 4. grammar formalisms, in particular (but not limited to) Tree
The Department for Computational Linguistics offers a rich and stimulating research environment: It participates with several projects in the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 991 funded by the DFG, http://www.sfb991.uni-duesseldorf.de/en/sfb991/. The CRC is a large collection of research projects; it focusses on the structure of representations in language, cognition and science with a particular emphasis on frames and on lexical semantics. Besides the CRC projects there is also a project on parsing and machine translation, http://www.phil-fak.uni-duesseldorf.de/beyond-cfg/.
Salary is on the German scale TV-L E13. The position is for two years. The starting date is October 1, 2012.
