-- Job description --

About Inria and the job Three Engineer Linguists positions are available at the INRIA Paris (Alpage project), funded by two projects, the ANR ParSiTi and the H2020 PARTHENOS projects. The ANR ParSiTi project aims at taking advantage of recent advances in Natural Language Processing and Deep Learning to address challenges posed by the steady rise of user-generated content, such as the need to make these often non-canonical text content available to a monolingual audience. PARTHENOS aims at strengthening the cohesion of research in the broad sector of Linguistic Studies, Humanities, Cultural Heritage, History, Archaeology and related fields integrating initiatives, infrastructures and building bridges between different, although tightly, interrelated fields.

In these projects INRIA has a central role in developing a coherent vision for data models and standards, together with data mining tools from unstructured data. The approach is, as far as possible, independent from a specific domain and rely on machine learning to avoid costly manual effort. The creation of gold standard of annotated data is a crucial milestone for any NLP, NER or data mining tasks.

Mission In order to build a sound evaluation framework for our projects, Inria is in charge of designing a multi-lingual gold standard data set in French, Arabic and English. The successful candidates will have to take care of the translation and correction of automatically annotated data using our in-house tools. The candidates will also be involved in the design extension and “reality”-check of our current annotation schemes.

Skills and profile All applicants must hold a linguistic/NLP degree with a strong emphasis on formal syntax and morphology. They should also demonstrate a working knowledge of any Linux/Unix environment, be able to proficiently use versioning systems (svn, github) and familiar with the XML format.

They must be truly autonomous and be able to present clearly key points of their work and capable of identifying linguistics bottleneck. Prior experience in annotation would be a plus, as well as experience in interacting with user- generated content (social media interactions, video-games live chat sessions and so on).

Candidates with a multilingual background (French/Arabic*, Arabic*/English or English/French -* preferably with a working knowledge of North-African Arabic dialects) are strongly encouraged to apply. --- -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
