They will be expected to do research in the mutually-decided project topic/focus, leading to tangible results (paper/software). Applicants should have a Bachelor's degree in a related field, preferably pursuing (or completed) a MS/PhD degree.

The position will be based at TTI-Chicago, a computer science graduate institute located on the University of Chicago campus, with vibrant research groups in machine learning, speech and language processing, and computer vision.

The target start date is flexible (Winter, Spring, or Summer 2015; earlier is preferable). The duration of the position is flexible (3 to 12 months). Compensation will be competitive. There are no citizenship requirements for this position. The position will remain open until filled.
