Position: Researcher in computational linguistics with scientific programming expertise
The Institute for Applied Linguistics (IAL) at Eurac Research is looking for a Researcher in computational linguistics with scientific programming expertise to implement and adapt software of interest for the IAL so as to support the needs in terms of selecting, installing and adapting desktop or online tools to explore and annotate textual data or to process text data for linguistic purposes using well-established libraries. The tasks of the new Researcher in computational linguistics will also depend on the experience (s)he will bring to the team and how it complements the skills of the researchers in the LT group (s)he will join. One of the first tasks of the selected candidate will be the development of a gamified web application for data crowdsourcing in the context of the Zeit.shift project (https://all4ling.eurac.edu/zeitshift/). However, the new collaborator will become a key figure in the coming linguaXlab linguistic services centre of the Institute, where (s)he will implement and apply technologies related to the Computational Linguistics and Digital Humanities activities of the LT group with a mid to long term perspective. This includes maintaining existing systems and platforms, localising CLARIN services (https://clarin.eurac.edu/), working with language data from South Tyrol and contributing to the growth of the Institute through the development of new projects and the pursuit of funding opportunities. Overall, we are looking for a cooperative and proactive team member with an interdisciplinary and applied research profile. The ideal candidate would have a sound technical background and previous working experience within a linguistics/humanities research context and be equipped with a decisive technology/infrastructure awareness and related expertise.
Applicants in the process of obtaining their MSc/MA/Diploma must have completed or nearly completed their studies by the time of their application. Only complete applications submitted will be considered. The appointment will start as soon as possible.
