Open Post-Doc Positions at the University of Munich

I am expanding my research group, which is located at the Center for Information and Language Processing at the University of Munich (LMU).

Positions are available on my European Research Council Starting Grant and in the Horizon 2020 project "Health in my Language (HimL)". This is the first call for two positions.

Main areas of focus for these positions: * translation to morphologically rich languages * domain adaptation using parallel and comparable corpora * neural machine translation * linguistic analysis of morphologically rich languages

Post-Doc salaries are in the range 35000-45000 euros and depend on prior experience.

There will be possibilities to teach and to collaborate on grant applications. Post-Docs may also participate in the supervision of doctoral students and/or masters/bachelors students. The working language of the group is English, no knowledge of German is required.

There is significant interaction with the research groups of Hinrich Schütze (deep learning and a variety of NLP problems) and Helmut Schmid (translation, parsing, tagging, morphology). We also have several active collaborations with colleagues at other universities.

The University of Munich is one of the top research universities in Europe. It was the highest ranked institution on several measures in the Exzellenzinitiative funding program organized by the German national science foundation in 2012.

Munich and the Upper Bavaria area are among the regions in Europe with the highest quality of living. The area is also home to a large number of high-tech, services and manufacturing companies, including many that use NLP technology.

If you are interested in applying please send me: * a cover letter including possible start dates * a CV * a statement of research interests * a brief statement of teaching experience and interest * the names and addresses of two references

Informal inquiries about these or future positions are also welcome, a copy of your CV could be useful here but is not strictly required.

Please also let me know if you are attending EMNLP and/or one of the September meetings in Prague.

LMU is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its staff. We strongly encourage applications from qualified women. Applicants with disabilities will be given preference in case of equally qualified candidates. -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
