The NLP/ML group in the Dept of Computing at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia is recruiting a post-doctoral researcher for a joint research project "Information Extraction and Parsing Methods for Government and Enterprise Applications" on information and relation extraction involving Macquarie University, CSIRO's Data61 and the University of Edinburgh.  The project uses syntactic parsing and deep learning to extract "who did what to whom when" from a large corpus of texts.  The research involves integrating information extracted from multiple texts and using this information in creative ways, e.g., building event time-lines for individuals, learning entailments between predicates and relations, etc.

The post-doc will report to Professor Mark Johnson in the Department of Computing, Macquarie University and Dr Stephen Wan of CSIRO's Data61, Marsfield, and will be collaborating with Professor Mark Steedman of Edinburgh University.

You will need to have a PhD and strong research record in NLP and ML, especially Deep Learning.  You will need to show proficiency with Deep Learning toolkits such as TensorFlow and Pytorch. Applications close on the 5th December 2018.  For further information and applications see the official advertisement on http://jobs.mq.edu.au/cw/en/job/504833/postdoctoral-research-fellow.
