Post-doctoral position

LATTICE, a CNRS research laboratory in descriptive and computational linguistics in Paris area (http://www.lattice.cnrs.fr/), offers a post-doctoral position on one of the following research topics:

- computational models of language evolution and language change

- advanced numerical methods for corpus linguistics (e.g. unsupervised learning for linguistic studies)

- (graded) word sense induction from corpora (in English and/or French)

The successful candidate will be able to develop his own trend of research. For most of the above positions, the theoretical framework considered for exploration is left to the choice of the candidate.

The fellowship is 2000 euros net per month. The position is available at the Lattice laboratory (Ecole Normale Supérieure, Montrouge, within Paris area) for 9 months, from January 2014 onwards.

The position is funded by an IFER Fellowship through the Labex TransferS.

To apply, please send first (as soon as possible and in any case before Sept 15, 2013) a CV to Thierry Poibeau <firstname.lastname at ens.fr> and a brief description of a research project so as to be able to evaluate the adequacy between the candidate’s project and the post.
