*Cross-lingual and cross-domain terminology alignment*


Interested in joining a young NLP group of 10+ people located in a 
historical town by the Atlantic Ocean? And walk 10 minutes from the lab 
to the beach. We have open positions in the *context of 2 ongoing 
Horizon 2020* projects: Embeddia and NewsEye as well as related 
projects. In 2020-2021, we have among others published long papers in 
*CORE A* and A* conferences ACL, JCDL, CoNLL, ICDAR, COLING, ICADL, etc.

*Location*: L3i laboratory, La Rochelle, France

*Duration*: 2 years (1+1), with possible further extension

*Net salary range*: 2100€-2300 € monthly

*Context*: H2020 Embeddia project and regional project Termitrad

Keywords: *terminology alignment, cross-lingual word embeddings, 
named-entity recognition and linking, deep/machine learning, statistical 
NLP, (text) mining*.

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher position around 
the topic of project Termitrad: keyword and terminology alignment 1) 
across languages and 2) across domains. In short, the overall objective 
of the project is to improve the relevance of the keywords describing 
research papers (and, time allowing, the quality of abstracts). One the 
one hand (cross-lingual alignment), we will rely on a corpora of journal 
articles with both French and English keywords and abstracts, both in as 
written by authors and in versions curated by experts. On the other hand 
(crossdomain alignment), we will work with use cases provided by 
researchers from different fields using different terms to describe 
similar concepts.

To address this very project, the project team will consist of senior 
staff, 2 post-doctoral researchers and 2-3 PhD students, one of which is 
jointly supervised in the Józef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana, 
coordinator of H2020 Embeddia. In this context, you will first be in 
charge of building a state of the art of existing related approaches, 
tools and resources, then to conduct further research and experiments, 
as well as participate in the supervision of PhD students.

Who we search for:

-PhD in statistical NLP, IR, or ML, ideally with further postdoctoral 

-proven record of high-level publications in one or more of those fields

-fluency in written and spoken English (French language skills are
