Two PhD student positions and three postdoctoral positions in computational approaches to reference with memory-enhanced neural networks, Barcelona (Spain)

Deadline: Thursday 15 December 2016

Applications are welcome for 2 PhD student and 3 post-doc positions on computational approaches to reference with memory-enhanced neural networks. The positions are for at most 4 years, and will be funded by a 5-year European Research Council Starting Grant awarded to the project AMORE: A distributional MOdel of Reference to Entities.

We seek outstanding researchers with a genuine interest in how human language, communication, and cognition work, with any of the following backgrounds: Machine learning, Computer Vision, or Computational semantics. Advanced programming and mathematical skills are required for 2 of the 3 post-doc positions, at least basic skills for the other one. Experience and interest in dataset construction, especially via crowdsourcing, is a plus. For PhD positions, experience on specific project topics is not required. All researchers are expected to have excellent analysis and abstraction skills, and an interest in working in an interdisciplinary environment.

PhD positions start October 2017; earlier starting date possible, as a research assistant. Post-doc positions available starting February 1st 2017, and open until filled.
