Job Vacancies at ILLC


  • Tenure Track Researcher Language in Interaction

    The successful candidate will be at the heart of a new research group whose aim is to promote the interaction between formal, logical, semantic, or/and computational modelling of language and cognition within the ILLC. To match these research tasks, the successful candidate will also be given a light teaching load in the MSc Logic, the MSc Brain and cognitive science, and/or the BSc/MSc Artificial Intelligence.

    This position is part of the larger Dutch research consortium "Language in Interaction" (lead-organisation Radboud University, Nijmegen), which brings together researchers from nine different research institutions in the Netherlands, with complementary expertise in a highly interdisciplinary area of research. The position will be embedded within the ILLC within the Faculty of Science (FNWI) of the University of Amsterdam. The researcher will be appointed either in the Language & Computation or in the Logic & Language programme at ILLC, and will form a new interface between these. The position comes with a PhD fellowship.

    Application deadline: 15 October 2014. For more information, see http://www.uva.nl/en/about-the-uva/working-at-the-uva/vacancies/item/14-220.html.
