The position starts as soon as possible and ends in June 2023. The candidate will conduct research in a project on unsupervised frame induction, focusing in particular on hierarchical relations between frame types and on complex events. Head of the project is Prof. Dr. Laura Kallmeyer. The project is funded by the German Science Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG). It is a follow-up project of B08, CRC 991 http://www.sfb991.uni-duesseldorf.de/en/b08/.
The candidate should have a computational linguistics background and experience in the area of machine learning.
Knowledge of German is not a prerequisite.
The Department for Computational Linguistics offers a rich and stimulating research environment. Research on frames has a long tradition here, in particular within CRC 991, a large collection of research projects that focus on the structure of representations in language, cognition and science with a particular emphasis on frames and on lexical semantics. Laura Kallmeyer's ERC project TreeGraSP is also, among others, concerned with frames and semantic parsing https://treegrasp.phil.hhu.de.
The University seeks to advance the equality of men and women and therefore emphatically encourages women to apply. In case of equal qualification, preference will be given to people with disabilities.
Applications should include the following:
1. Cover letter outlining interest in the position and academic goals. 2. CV. 3. Copies of certificates. 4. Selected sample publications.
