Postdoctoral Research Associate in NLP/ML at UNC Chapel Hill

Country : USA - United States

Website : http://nlp.cs.unc.edu

Description

The Department of Computer Science at UNC Chapel Hill seeks a Postdoctoral Research Associate with Prof. Mohit Bansal, who leads the UNC-NLP Lab. The focus of this NLP+ML postdoc position will be fairly broad, including but not limited to multimodal+embodied semantics, human-like language generation and Q&A/dialogue, and interpretable and generalizable deep learning. The postdoc will be given significant freedom to create a research agenda within the scope of the lab, as well as opportunities to advise graduate and undergraduate students in the lab, collaborate with the several other AI faculty (vision/robotics/ML) in the department (and teach courses if they choose to do so).
The ideal candidate has a Ph.D. in CS/EE/ECE on a topic in machine learning applied to natural language processing, computer vision, or a related area.
The initial appointment is for one year but the position is expected to last at least two years and can start asap (the start date is flexible). Salary is negotiable and will be competitive with other similar positions. We strongly encourage diversity. For an outstanding candidate, there is also the possibility to convert into a tenure-track assistant professorship.
To apply, please visit the official job posting at: http://unc.peopleadmin.com/postings/149709, where you will submit a CV/resume, a research statement, and a list of 2-3 professional references with their full contact information. A cover letter is optional.
[note that the “Posting Close Date” can be extended if needed]
