The Department of Linguistics at the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Potsdam is seeking to fill the following position:

Post-doctoral Researcher Salary Scale: 13 TV-Länder (Tarifgebiet Ost) Requisition No.: 122/2012

to be part of the research group on Applied Computational Linguistics (Prof. Dr. Manfred Stede). This is a full-time position (40 working hours per week). The position is open from October 1st, 2012 onward, and the contract is initially limited to two years (future extension is possible).

The successful candidate will help with coordinating the activites of the group's Discourse Reseach Lab (see http://www.ling.uni-potsdam.de/~stede/lab-index.html) and is expected to have profound expertise either in text mining techniques (such as discourse parsing, sentiment analysis, topic/genre classification), or in theories of discourse structure, or in both.

The position has a teaching load of four hours per week on topics of applied computational linguistics or discourse theories. Although it is not a strict requirement, preference will be given to applicants who are able to teach in German.

The computational linguistics group in Potsdam is part of the Department of Linguistics and the university's designated Area of Excellence in Cognitive Sciences. It provides a dynamic and international research environment and maintains close ties with the departments of computer science and psychology. The department offers a BSc in Computational Linguistics; an MSc (taught in English) is in preparation.

The city of Potsdam, once the residence of the Prussian kings and German emperors, is surrounded by rivers and lakes and supports a wide variety of recreational activities. It is part of the Berlin metro- politan area, one of the cultural and scientific capitals of the world. The city of Berlin is within commuting distance, and many researchers and students choose to live there. The region offers a high quality of urban life at very modest living costs.

Handicapped applicants will be given preference in case of equal suitability. The University of Potsdam strives to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching and specifically encourages female applicants to apply for this position.
