Postdoc on "Conversational Feedback: Multidimensional analyses and modeling" (CoFee), Laboratoire Parole et Langage (Aix-En-Provence) (UMR 7309)

Applications are invited for an 18 months postdoctoral position on linguistic feedback modeling.

The aim of the project is to study the interfaces between linguistic domains (lexicon, prosody, kinesic) in the context of linguistic feedback behaviors. Only candidates with experience with at least two of the points below will be considered:

- speech and prosody

- dialogue / conversation / interaction analysis and modeling

- kinesics (especially facial expression and head movements)

- natural language processing

Concerning the kind of approaches considered both corpus/quantitative and formal backgrounds are welcomed.

The position is planned to start around February 1st but we can discuss about late starting period. The salary will be determined according to the French university standards (about 1950 euros / month after tax and health insurance coverage for a young researcher). Funding for presenting relevant research results into conferences comes with the position.

Speaking French will be a plus for everyday life in Aix-en-Provence, but fluency in English is the minimal requirement.

The research lab is located in the center of Aix-en-Provence (http://www.aixenprovencetourism.com/). Aix is a sunny middle-sized city of South East France, nested in the Provence countryside, 30 minutes from the Mediterranean and 1h30 from the Alps.

The "Laboratoire Parole et Langage" is a very active lab currently involved in several large scale projects (Labex "Brain and Language Research Institute" : www.blri.fr ; EQUIPEX Open Resources and Tools for LANGuage (ORTOLANG) : www.ortolang.fr ; and Erasmus Mundus "Multilingualism and Multiculturalism": www.em-multi.eu ) offering a stimulating research environment and large and diverse opportunities of collaborations.

A curriculum vitae and a list of publications should be sent to Laurent Prévot (laurent.prevot at lpl-aix.fr) by December 31st but please contact us asap if you are interested by the position for deepening mutual knowledge before formal application.
