POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHERS IN TEXT MINING AND NATURAL LANGUAGE UNDERSTANDING



The Language Intelligence & Information Retrieval (LIIR) lab of KU Leuven, Belgium is part of the Human Computer Interaction (HCI) unit in the Department of Computer Science.

 

Responsibilities

Postdoctoral position on the topic of multilingual text mining. The goal is to build interlingual representations that allow multilingual topic modelling, content classification (e.g., opinion and argumentation mining) and question answering. This postdoctoral position will be funded by the EU ITEA3 grant PAPUD and offers a contract for two years. The position will start as soon as possible. 

 

Postdoctoral position on the topic of multimodal representation learning. The goal is to learn continuous representations that represent language grounded in visual perception (static images and video), assist in the design of novel machine learning architectures, and investigate suitable data structures for real-time search. This postdoctoral position will be funded by the ERC Advanced Grant CALCULUS and offers a contract for two years (with the possibility of renewal for another two years). The position will start September 1, 2018.

 

Profile

PhD in computer science or equivalent.

Motivated interest in and preferably knowledge of (as demonstrated by publications in highly recognized venues such as ACL, EMNLP, ICML, NIPS, etc.) of natural language processing and machine learning, including deep learning and learning of latent variable models. For the second postdoctoral position, interest or experience in semantic hashing is a plus.

 

Offer

The successful candidates will have the opportunity to work on cutting-edge natural language processing, multimedia processing and machine learning research. He/she will be given the opportunity for personal development beyond research, for example by contributing to departmental teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
