We ask for applications from candidates in Computer Science or Computational Linguistics, preferably with completed PhD and research publications. Prior work in the above areas is a definite advantage. Excellent graduates of these disciplines willing to work towards a PhD are also encouraged to apply. Ideally, the candidates should have strong research skills as well as demonstrable experience in designing and implementing complex natural language processing (NLP) systems in Java. Experience in information retrieval, large-scale data processing using Hadoop, Spark, or similar technologies, and machine learning – especially deep-learning – is a strong plus. Excellent communication skills in English and the ability to work in a team are required. UKP has a wide cooperation network both within its own research community and with partners from social sciences and educational sciences, and humanities. Combining basic NLP research on very large Web corpora with research questions from these application domains will be highly encouraged.
The Department of Computer Science of TU Darmstadt is regularly ranked among the top ones in respective rankings of German universities. Its unique research initiative "Knowledge Discovery in the Web” emphasizes natural language processing, text mining, machine learning, as well as scalable infrastructures for the assessment and aggregation of knowledge. The recently established Research Training Group “Adaptive Information Processing of Heterogeneous Content” (AIPHES) funded by the DFG  provides an excellent research environment for the position to be filled. UKP Lab is a highly dynamic research group committed to high-quality research results, cooperative work style and close interaction of team members working on common goals.
Applications should include a CV, a motivation letter, an outline of research experience, as well as names and addresses of two referees. Applications from women are particularly encouraged. All other things being equal, candidates with disabilities will be given preference. Please send the application to: jobs at ukp.informatik.tu-darmstadt.de by 18.08.2015.
