Job Application: Candidates will apply online, through the GALAXIE portal. https://galaxie.enseignementsup-recherche.gouv.fr/antares/can/index.jsp

The application period starts on February 25, 2020 at 10 am (Paris time) and closes on March 26, 2020 at 4 pm (Paris time)

Job description

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 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 Université de Paris – http://www.llf.cnrs.fr/en). The research profile of the position is in computational semantics, at the crossroads of linguistics, computer science and mathematics.

The candidate is expected to formulate a world-class research project in the field of computational semantics and be able to supervise students in this field. The prospects for integration into the LLF will have to be discussed, in particular within the computational linguistics strand ( http://www.llf.cnrs.fr/en/research-topics). A formal semantic and/or experimental semantic component will be a plus. 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".

The candidates will have to demonstrate a solid knowledge of linguistics and computer science. They will be able to teach fundamental courses in the LI curriculum, including courses in computational semantics, logic, formal foundations of NLP, as well as "Discovery" Bachelor's degree courses (e. g. “logic and language”, “language and artificial intelligence”). With a good knowledge of current NLP applications, they will be able to supervise students' projects. They may also be involved in the Theoretical and Experimental Linguistics program (at the L3 or master level), for example in semantics, corpus processing, or experimental methods. The ability to participate in the new Data Science Master's degree of the Mathematics Dpt. is a plus that will be appreciated.

Teaching covers the Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral degrees. The successful 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 corpus processing, experimental methods or more fundamental courses) is a plus that will be appreciated.

Application process:

1. Qualification. All candidates (French and international) are required to have received the “qualification” by the French national committee (CNU – Conseil National des Universités) before they can apply for a position. For the qualification stage, candidates are invited to register online and submit their application before October 24th, 2019, 4 P.M. (Paris time) on the Galaxie website of the French "Ministère de l'Enseignement Supérieur". The application procedure and all instructions are listed on the Galaxie website:


2. Job application. Candidates must apply online, through the GALAXIE portal. The whole application process is dematerialized. https://galaxie.enseignementsup-recherche.gouv.fr/antares/can/index.jsp

The application period starts on February 25, 2020 at 10 am (Paris time) and closes on March 26, 2020 at 4 pm (Paris time)

The position will start on September 1st, 2020.
