- We seek outstanding researchers with a genuine interest in how human language, communication, and cognition work, with any of the following backgrounds: Machine learning, specifically deep learning (of special interest are recurrent models and models with dynamic trainable memories); Computer Vision and the integration of Language and Vision; Computational semantics, formal semantics, and computational approaches to discourse (particularly on topics related to reference, including DRT or similar frameworks, coreference and anaphora, conceptual aspects of meaning, and distributional semantics). Advanced programming and mathematical skills are required for 2 of the 3 post-doc positions, at least basic skills for the other one. Experience and interest in dataset construction, especially via crowdsourcing, is a plus. For PhD positions, experience on specific project topics is not required. All researchers are expected to have excellent analysis and abstraction skills, and an interest in working in interdisciplinary environment.
