The call includes a very wide range of subject areas, covering also computational linguistics.

DEADLINE: The call will close at 12:00 (CET) on 1 March 2013.

All necessary information can be found at that web page, but here are a few explanatory words:

This is not an advertisement for a job opening! Instead, the profiles of applicants who successfully pass this selection procedure will be entered into a database of scientists that _can_ be hired to work at the JRC for a fixed-term contract within a period of up to three years after entering the database. The JRC can only fill positions of contractual agents with persons whose profiles made it into the database.

NATIONALITY: The call is open for citizens of a Member State of the European Union or of one of the associated countries to the 7th Research Framework Programme (Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Israel, Liechtenstein, Montenegro, Norway, Republic of Moldova, Switzerland, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Serbia, Turkey).

BACKGROUND ON OUR TEXT MINING WORK: The OPTIMA group at the Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Ispra, Italy, develops complex, highly multilingual (tens of languages) Language Technology applications applied to online media, including both traditional and social media. Our flagship product is the Europe Media Monitor (EMM) <http://emm.newsbrief.eu/overview.html> family of applications, which includes NewsExplorer <http://emm.newsexplorer.eu/> , NewsBrief <http://emm.newsbrief.eu/> , the Medical Information System MedISys <http://medisys.newsbrief.eu/> and EMM-Labs <http://emm-labs.jrc.it/> and which processes a daily average of 175,000 news articles per day in up to 73 languages. We have developed and we use a range of text mining applications, including clustering and categorisation; information extraction and disambiguation (persons, organisations, locations, quotations; event scenario template filling); name variant matching; topic detection and tracking, including across languages; co-reference resolution; sentiment analysis/opinion mining; multi-document summarisation; social network generation; statistical machine translation.
