and good knowledge of current NN software (e.g. Tensorflow, Theano,
Keras, Caffe, Torch) are required. Previous research experience on the
application of NN to language modeling/corpus linguistics and some
working knowledge of modern theoretical syntax a plus.
Expressions of interest in English should include a brief motivation

UniTN and CIMeC
The University of Trento has systematically ranked in the top tier
positions in Italy in the past 10 years in both national Research
Assessment Evaluations (RAE) and University Surveys.
The goal of CIMEC is to foster cutting-edge research on cognition and
its neural underpinnings and to support the dissemination of these
findings internationally and within the local community. As an
interdisciplinary research and teaching center, it draws on faculty
from several departments, including Psychology and Cognitive Science,
Humanities and Philosophy, Physics, Mathematics, and Information
Engineering and Computer Science. Its faculty originates from Italy,
Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, USA, Canada, Argentina, Israel and
beyond. The research interaction is primarily conducted in English.
CiMEC, along with the University of Trento Psycology and Cognitive
Science Faculty is located in Rovereto, Trento province, in the
Southern Alps. Roverto is a small but culturally rich town which hosts
MART, one of the largest museums of contemporary art in Northern Italy
and several arts and music festivals. It is 15 Km South of Trento, 20
Km from the Garda Lake, 75 Km North of Verona, 160 Km from the
Austrian border.
