The Charles University in Prague (CUNI) invites applications for a position as research scholar (PhD) in computational linguistics at the Institute of Formal and Applied Linguistics.
The 3-year position involves participation as an Early Stage Researcher in the project "Linguistic Analysis for Treebank Annotation", which is the subproject of the EU project CLARA (Common Language Resources and their Applications, Marie Curie Initial Training Network receiving funding from the European Commission's 7th Framework Programme). The overall aim of the subproject is to specify a common core of syntactic and semantic features for a range of languages (Czech, English, German, Slovak, and others). Different annotation schemes will be tested and validated by performing annotation of texts for these languages, providing as the final product annotated corpora (treebanks) for both linguistic research and statistical language learning, as well as creating NLP tools (i.e., tools for automatic syntactic and semantic analysis).
Application deadline: April 25, 2010 Duration: 3 years (starting from September 1, 2010) Notification: May/June 2010
