One year research position in NLP in Paris (parsing corpora in Rabbinic Hebrew or Aramaic)

The LATTICE Research Unit in Paris in collaboration with the chair for Hebrew and Aramaic at the EPHE calls for applications for a one year position in natural language processing (NLP) in the framework of the research project LAKME, funded by the university cluster Paris-Sciences-Lettres.

The aim of this project is the development of algorithms for syntactic analysis of Rabbinic Hebrew and / or Aramaic.

We are looking for a motivated young researcher who can imagine innovative solutions to complex problems. Prior experience in natural language (esp. tagging and parsing morphology-rich languages) and at least basic knowledge of Rabbinic Hebrew or Aramaic is necessary.

The position is open for post-doc and engineers. Salary will depends on the qualification of the candidate.

The larger goal is to work on data related to ancient languages for which there currently is no gold standard or readily available representative datasets. Corpora for training and developing experiments will be provided, but the candidate may have to develop new strategies to evaluate the work done and compare it to other approaches. The candidate may have to work on language specialists to adapt the develop techniques to specific languages or corpora.

The call for the position will remain open until filled. Interested candidates are requested to send a CV as soon as possible to Thierry Poibeau (thierry.poibeau at ens.fr <mailto:thierry.poibeau at ens.fr>). The position is expected to start during Autumn 2016.

Requirements: * Experience in natural language processing * Skills in tagging / parsing, esp. of morphology-rich languages would be a strong asset * Basic knowledge of one of the language below (Hebrew or Aramaic). * Fluent English

1. Mishnaic Hebrew

The aim of this project is the development of algorithms for syntactic analysis of Classical Rabbinic Hebrew (Mishnah) in a project undertaken in collaboration with the chair for Hebrew and Aramaic at the EPHE and with the Institute of Advanced Studies (Paris).

For this position, at least basic knowledge of Hebrew is required. A strong track record of publication would be appreciated.

2. Talmudic Aramaic

In this project, the aim is to develop algorithms for automatic morphological and lexical tagging of Babylonian Aramaic. The project is undertaken in collaboration with the chair for Hebrew and Aramaic at the EPHE with the Institute of Advanced Studies (Paris) and with the editor of the Comprehensive Aramaic Lexicon at Hebrew Union College.
