The Université Paris Diderot (Paris 7) invites applications for a position

at the rank of Assistant Professor (Maître de Conférences - MCF) in

computational linguistics, starting in September 2019.

Note the application dates are earlier than previously announced:

Open date: ** February, 4th 2019 **

End date: ** March, 6th 2019 , 16h (Paris time) **

The Paris Diderot Computational Linguistics (CL) curriculum was the

first of its kind in France (first class in 1984), and has always been

characterised by the ambition to offer, in a linguistics department

specialised in formal linguistics, quality training in computer science,

with requirements comparable to those of scientific training. To support

this multidisciplinary ambition, the curriculum grounds its training in

both linguistics and computer science departments.

The curriculum includes a 3rd year of bachelor's degree offered to

students at Bac+2 level, as well as a master's degree in computational

linguistics. The Master's degree is oriented either towards research or

the professional world. After the Master's degree, students can pursue

a PhD at Université Paris Diderot in either linguistics or computer

science, depending on their initial training.

Research & teaching :

Research will be conducted within the Laboratoire de linguistique

formelle (LLF - UMR 7110 / CNRS and Paris Diderot), in particular in the field of computational linguistics, at the crossroads of linguistics, computer science and mathematics.


The candidate must propose a research project in the field of

computational linguistics (speech or written language processing, on

fundamental NLP tasks or applications). The prospects for integration

into the LLF will have to be discussed. Research may also be carried out

within the framework of the LabEx Empirical Foundations of Linguistics

(EFL, http://www.labex-efl.com) and in particular its strand 5

"computational semantics".

Teaching covers the Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral degrees. The

succesfull candidate will be able to teach computational linguistics and

machine learning methods in the CL curriculum, but must also demonstrate

a solid general knowledge of both the underlying mathematical and

computational foundations and the theoretical foundations in

linguistics. The candidate should have good knowledge of the current

application tasks in NLP and be able to supervise student

projects. Ability to teach in the core curriculum of the Master's degree

in Language Sciences (methodological courses, such as the corpus

processing, experimental methods or more fundamental courses) is a plus

that will be appreciated.
