Postdoctoral researcher in Natural Language UnderstandingDeadline: Thursday 1 June 2017
ILLC is looking for a postdoctoral researcher for semantic reasoning and semantic parsing, as part of Ivan Titov’s NWO VIDI Project Scaling Semantic Parsing to Unrestricted Domains. The aim of the PhD project is to develop effective semantic parsers and statistical models for reasoning relying on machine learning (incl. deep learning / deep generative models / structured prediction). The primary focus is on inducing these models from large amounts of unannotated text (on the Web) while guided by existing prior knowledge (e.g., in the form of annotated data).For more information, see here or at www.uva.nl/en/content/vacancies/2017/05/17-225-postdoctoral-researcher-in-natural-language-understanding.html or contact dr Ivan Titov at i.a.titov at uva.nl.
