Postdoctoral fellowships in Natural Language Processing and Information Retrieval

The Department of Computer Science at the Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen (DIKU) is offering five postdoctoral positions in natural language processing and/or information retrieval, commencing 1 December 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The postdoc will become part of the research collective COASTAL (https://coastalcph.github.io) or of the Information Retrieval Lab in the Machine Learning Section at DIKU (https://di.ku.dk/english/research/machine-learning/). COASTAL and the Information Retrieval Lab are among the leading research groups in natural language processing and information retrieval in Europe, with a strong presence at top-tier conferences like EMNLP, ACL, SIGIR and NAACL, as well as in premier AI/ML conferences like AAAI and NeurIPS. COASTAL aims to be “the friendliest world top 10 group to work in” and attract talented researchers from around the world with a diverse set of backgrounds – from mathematics to psychology and language. Our modus operandi is internal and external collaboration, and we frequently collaborate with researchers from the best university and industry research groups.

The postdoctoral positions most likely include:

  • an 18 month postdoctoral fellowship in Multilingual Abstractive Summarization and related topics.
  • an 18 month postdoctoral fellowship in Interpretable Natural Language Understanding and related topics.
  • a 3 year postdoctoral fellowship in Interpretable Natural Language Understanding with a focus on bias detection and legal document processing.
  • a 2 year postdoctoral fellowship in Robust Dialogue Systems – with the second year planned at the University of Edinburgh under the supervision of Mirella Lapata.
  • a 3 year postdoctoral fellowship in culturally informed Natural Language Generation for recommender systems – in collaboration with JobIndex (Scandinavia’s biggest recruitment agency).
Supervision and teaching are encouraged, but not required. Travel funding and computing resources are covered.

Applicants should have or be about to receive a PhD degree in a subject relevant for the research area. The successful candidate is expected to have a solid background in natural language processing and/or information retrieval and should have a strong research record as witnessed by publications in top conferences in natural language processing and/or information retrieval and/or machine learning.

The exact details are still negotiated with the funding agency, but will be fixed by the application deadline. Inquiries about the positions can be made to Anders Søgaard at soegaard@di.ku.dk and to Christina Lioma at c.lioma@di.ku.dk. Further information on the Department is linked at http://www.science.ku.dk/english/about-the-faculty/organisation/.
