Institution/Organization: EML Research
Department: NLP Group
Web Address: http://www.eml-research.de/nlp

Level: PhD

Job Rank: PhD

Specialty Areas: Computational Linguistics


Two positions for PhD students are available in the Natural Language Processing
Group at EML Research in Heidelberg, Germany (October 15, 2009)

(1) One position for a PhD student is available within a project dealing with
multi-lingual content synchronization in Wikis. The project is funded by the
European Commission for three years starting March 2010. The student will be
working on issues related to topic segmentation and discourse structure in
parallel multi-lingual Wikis and Wikipedia (see
http://www.eml-research.de/nlp for our previous research on Wikipedia).

(2) One PhD scholarship (salary EUR 1280/month, taxfree) is available for a
student working in the areas of Natural Language Generation (Text-to-text
generation, automatic summarization) or Sentiment Analysis/Opinion Mining.
Different topics may be possible as long as they are within the general
interests of the NLP group (semantics, pragmatics, discourse, generation, see
http://www.eml-research.de/nlp). The scholarship will be granted initially for
two years with the possibility for a one year extension after successful evaluation.

Both candidates should have a strong background in computational linguistics and
possess a Masters or a Diploma degree in either computational linguistics,
computer science, or linguistics with a specialization in Natural Language
Processing. Experience with machine learning and corpus-based methods and
knowledge about statistics is a plus. Strong Java programming skills are required.

EML Research gGmbH is a private non-profit research laboratory dedicated to
basic and applied research in IT with a focus on bioinformatics and natural
language processing. The NLP group is an interdisciplinary research group that
works on applications in the area of discourse and dialogue, in particular
coreference resolution, lexical semantics, text generation, automatic
summarization, and knowledge extraction from semistructured input (see

The NLP group at EML Research works closely together with the Computational
Linguistics Department at the University of Heidelberg. PhD students will
participate in a jointly organized PhD colloquium.
