  • Postdoctoral researcher Language in Interaction

    Deadline: Sunday 10 September 2017

    This postdoc position is part of the larger Dutch research consortium 'Language in Interaction', sponsored by a large grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The goal is to understand both the universality and the variability of the human language faculty from genes to behaviour. The postdoc will be part of a team working on the question "The nature of the mental lexicon: How to bridge neurobiology and psycholinguistic theory by computational modelling?", and will focus on the problem of how to learn word vector representations that encode the combinatorial properties of words required to account for complex linguistic phenomena.

    The postdoctoral researcher should have a PhD degree (or equivalent) in (computational) linguistics, or another relevant field of study, and a strong background in syntax, formal semantics and/or parsing. Knowledge of methods in distributional semantics and machine learning for Natural Language Processing is desirable, as is previous experience with vector space models of semantic compositionality.
