Applications are invited for two positions in NLP at the University of Cambridge:

1. Post-doctoral Research Associate

Deadline for applications: 30 June, 2015 Start date: 1 September, 2015 Duration: 3 years Details of how to apply: http://www.jobs.cam.ac.uk/job/7136/

2. PhD studentship

Deadline for applications: 30 June, 2015 Start date: 1 October, 2015 Duration: 3 years Details of how to apply: http://www.jobs.cam.ac.uk/job/7109/

The two positions will be part of the new LEXICAL (Lexical Acquisition across Languages) project, funded by the European Research Council (ERC) in the form of a Consolidator Grant awarded to Anna Korhonen. The aim of the project is to develop a novel computational framework for learning and transferring lexical information across languages without the need for parallel resources. The project will cover a variety of typologically diverse languages and language domains and will demonstrate the usefulness for NLP applications such as machine translation.

1. The Research Associate position is for 3 years starting from 1 September 2015. The successful applicant will have completed a Ph.D. degree in computational linguistics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer science, or a related discipline and will be able to demonstrate an excellent track record of independent research and strong publications. Essential skills include: excellent programming skills, statistical natural language processing techniques, machine learning, as well as proven collaborative, communication and networking skills. Previous experience with joint learning and inference may be considered an advantage.

2. The PhD studentship is for 3 years starting from 1 October, 2015. The successful applicant will have a good Master's degree (equivalent of first-class distinction) in computational linguistics, artificial intelligence, computer science, or a related discipline, completed by 30 September 2015. He/she will have strong programming skills and previous experience in NLP and/or machine learning. Previous experience with joint learning and inference may be considered an advantage. The grant covers university fees and maintenance for the period of three years. Both UK/EU and overseas candidates are encouraged to apply.

The RA and the PhD student will work with Anna Korhonen as part of the ERC project team. They will be members of the vibrant and highly research-active Language Technology Lab (http://ltl.mml.cam.ac.uk) at the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics and the large community of NLP researchers in the University of Cambridge.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Anna Korhonen (alk23 at cam.ac.uk).
