****Post-doc in NLP for racial stereotypes detection in social media at Toulouse University (France)****

The Institut de Recherche en informatique de Toulouse (IRIT-Toulouse University) has a 12 months position offer within the STERHEOTYPES project (https://www.irit.fr/sterheotypes/ <https://www.irit.fr/sterheotypes/>), a three years (2021-2024) funded project under the “Challenge for Europe”, on using NLP for the detection of racial stereotypes in social media content. The project focuses on ‘racial hoaxes’, communicative acts created to circulate information that are an allegation of a threat posed against someone’s health or safety associated to individual or a group because of race, ethnicity or religion. Aiming at understanding the social and psychological processes emerging from racial hoaxes in digital generations across three border Mediterranean European countries (Italy, Spain and France), the project integrates different methodological approaches coming from psychology and computational linguistics.

The candidate will investigate racial stereotype detection in tweets and will focus in particular on: (1) Developing deep learning models for an accurate identification of stereotypes and their characterization, (2) Exploring multilingual detection in collaboration with other partners from Italy (Univ. Torino, Univ. Bari) and Spain (Univ. Barcelona).
