Postdoctoral researcher in Computational Linguistics and Dialogue Modelling at ILLCDeadline: Friday 1 June 2018
The Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam invites applications for a one-year research position at the postdoc level in the Dialogue Modelling Group led by Raquel Fernández. The mission of the group is to understand dialogical interaction by developing empirically-motivated formal and computational models that can be applied to various dialogue processing tasks and to human-machine interaction.
This position is part of a larger project on Asymmetry in Conversation, funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) under the VIDI scheme. The exact research topic to be pursued by the successful applicant is flexible, but it must fit the general research agenda of the group, which is centred around computational semantics and pragmatics, in particular in interactive linguistic settings, including dialogue systems. The group has a wide international network of collaborators, both in academia and in industry research labs.For more information, see here or at https://www.uva.nl/en/content/vacancies/2018/03/18-136-postdoctoral-researcher-in-computational-linguistics-and-dialogue-modelling.html or contact Dr Raquel Fernández at raquel.fernandez at uva.nl.
