The Ubiquitous Knowledge Processing (UKP) Lab at the Department of Computer Science, Technische Universität (TU) Darmstadt, Germany has an opening for a

PostDoc / Senior Researcher
(for an initial term of two years with an option for an extension)

to strengthen the group’s expertise in the area of Natural Language Processing with its novel applications to Humanities, Social and Educational Sciences with a focus on multimodal analysis and large-scale knowledge extraction. The UKP Lab is a research group comprising over 30 team members who work on various aspects of Natural Language Processing (NLP). The group has a strong research profile in computational linguistics, machine learning and text mining. Core research areas include semantic text analysis and resources with their applications in multimodal information processing, knowledge discovery, and discourse analysis. The lab closely cooperates with groups in machine learning, image analysis, and interactive data analytics of the Computer Science department and a large number of research labs worldwide.

We ask for applications from candidates in Computer Science with a specialization/PhD in  Natural Language Processing or Text Mining, preferably with expertise in research and development projects and strong communication skills in English and German (optional). The successful applicant will work on research and development activities within the profile area described above and – based on the previous experience and qualification – will be given an opportunity to contribute to teaching courses, PhD student co-supervision, and project management activities.

Ideally, the candidates should have demonstrable experience in NLP research, designing and implementing complex (NLP and/or ML) systems, applying Machine Learning incl. neural networks to text processing (e.g. document classification, sequence classification, clustering, etc.), information retrieval and databases, scalable data processing, and strong programming skills in Python and/or Java.

The research environment is excellent. The Department of Computer Science of TU Darmstadt is regularly ranked among the top ones among the German universities. Its unique Centre for the Digital Foundation of Research in the Humanities, Social, and Educational Sciences (CEDIFOR) and the Research Training Group “Adaptive Information Processing of Heterogeneous Content” (AIPHES) funded by the DFG emphasize NLP, machine learning and text mining.  UKP Lab is a highly dynamic research group committed to high-quality research results, technologies of the highest standards, cooperative work style and close interaction of team members.

Applications should include a detailed CV, a motivation letter and an outline of previous working or research experience and the names of three referees. Applications from women are particularly encouraged. All other things being equal, candidates with disabilities will be given preference.
