The Ubiquitous Knowledge Processing (UKP) Lab at the Department of Computer Science, Technische Universitšt (TU) Darmstadt, Germany has an opening for an

Associate Research Scientist (PostDoc- or PhD-level; for an initial term of two years)

to strengthen the group’s profile in the areas of Interactive Text Analysis and Natural Language Processing Infrastructure. The UKP Lab is a research group comprising over 30 team members who work on various aspects of Natural Language Processing (NLP) with a rapidly developing focus on Interactive Machine Learning, and who provide a wide range of open source software packages for interactive and automatic text analysis to research and industry communities.

We ask for applications from candidates in Computer Science with a specialization in Natural Language Processing or Text Mining, preferably with expertise in research and development projects and strong communication skills in English and German. The successful applicant will work on research and development activities regarding text annotation by end-users (researchers, analysts, etc.), information recommendation, information retrieval, or semantic text analysis, and to create the corresponding applications and software components in coordination with the prospective end-users.

Ideally, the candidates should have demonstrable experience in designing and implementing complex (NLP and/or ML) systems (frontend and backend), in applying NLP-related Machine Learning-based methods (e.g. document classification, sequence classification, clustering, etc.), experience with information retrieval systems and databases, scalable data processing, and strong programming skills especially in Java. Experience with neural network architectures and demonstrable engagement in open source projects are strong pluses.

UKP’s wide cooperation network both within its own research community and with partners from research and industry provides an excellent environment for the position to be filled. The Department of Computer Science of TU Darmstadt is regularly ranked among the top ones in respective rankings of German universities. Its unique research initiative "Data Analytics” and the Research Training Group “Adaptive Information Processing of Heterogeneous Content” (AIPHES) funded by the DFG emphasize NLP, machine learning, text mining and scalable infrastructures for the assessment and aggregation of knowledge. UKP Lab is a highly dynamic research group committed to high-quality research results, technologies of the highest standards, cooperative work style and close interaction of team members working on common goals.

Applications should include a detailed CV, a motivation letter and an outline of previous working or research experience (if available).

Applications from women are particularly encouraged. All other things being equal, candidates with disabilities will be given preference. Please submit your application via the following form by November 24, 2017: https://public.ukp.informatik.tu-darmstadt.de/ukprecruitment. The position is open until filled.
