Postdoctoral position in natural language processing

Postdoctoral position in natural language processing

  • Perform research in language understanding.
  • Carry out some teaching duties, which may include lectures/exercise sessions, the organization of student seminars, and the supervision of bachelor and master theses.
  • Help in the supervision of PhD researchers.

We offer a two-year postdoctoral position on the topic of natural language processing in the department of Computer Science (?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwms.cs.kuleuven.be%2Fcs%2Fenglish&module=jobs&id=2509" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">https://wms.cs.kuleuven.be/cs/english) at KU Leuven, Belgium. The position focuses on natural language understanding and gives possibilities to research topics in one or more of the following fields: machine learning (especially semi-supervised learning, transfer learning, continual learning, deep learning and latent variable models), multimodal processing of language and visual data, and learning the grounded meaning of language from various contexts in which language is used (e.g., physical, language or social). The successful candidate will work in a dynamic lab specialized in natural language processing and information retrieval (?url=https%3A%2F%2Fliir.cs.kuleuven.be%2F&module=jobs&id=2509" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">https://liir.cs.kuleuven.be/). He or she will be given the opportunity for personal development beyond research, for example by contributing to teaching (e.g., at the undergraduate and graduate levels). KU Leuven ranks among the top 50 universities in THE World University Rankings 2019. The alumni of the lab have obtained outstanding positions in academics and industry (see ?url=https%3A%2F%2Fliir.cs.kuleuven.be%2Fpeople.php&module=jobs&id=2509" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">https://liir.?url=cs.kuleuven.be%2Fpeople&module=jobs&id=2509" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">cs.kuleuven.be/people.php).
