> Dear all,
> We have an opening for a 3-year position of Research Associate or Research
> Fellow in Machine Learning with applications to Machine Translation and
> Multimodal Language Processing. This position is funded by the ERC MultiMT
> project: Multi-modal Context Modelling for Machine Translation, led by
> Prof. Lucia Specia (www.dcs.shef.ac.uk/~lucia) at the University of
> Sheffield.
> This is a highly interdisciplinary project involving Natural Language
> Processing, Computer Vision and Machine Learning. Its goal is to devise
> methods and algorithms to exploit global multi-modal information for
> context modelling in Machine Translation. The post holder will be expected
> to investigate new ways to acquire multilingual multi-modal
> representations, and new machine learning and inference algorithms that can
> learn from these rich context models to generate high quality translations.
> In addition, if appointed as Research Fellow, the post holder will be
> expected to make significant contributions to multi-modal language
> processing in general, drawing from their experience in Computer Vision and
> Natural Language Processing.
> This is an opportunity to work in a well-connected international team with
> world-leading reputation in the Natural Language Processing (NLP) research
> group at the University of Sheffield. The NLP group is well known
> internationally for its research, and is one of the largest research groups
> in the area in Europe.
> This post offers excellent opportunities for publications, project visits
> and conference trips. Applicants should have (for Research Associate (RA)
> and Research Fellow (RF) posts):
> - PhD (or equivalent work experience) in Computer Science, Statistics,
> Mathematics or related areas
> - Significant experience and track record in Machine Learning (RA and RF)
> - Strong publication record commensurate with career stage (RA and RF)
> - Experience and strong track record in Computer Vision (desirable for RA,
> required for RF)
> - Experience and strong track record in Natural Language Processing
> (desirable for both RA and RF)
> - Strong programming experience, particularly in Python or C++. (RA and RF)
> This post is fixed-term with a start date from August 2016 (or soon after)
> and duration of 3 years with possibility of extension to 5 years.
> Salary range: 28,847 to 46,414 per annum.
