New opening for a postdoctoral position in Information Retrieval

We invite applications for a postdoctoral position at Idiap in information retrieval and natural language processing, for a technology transfer project funded by the Swiss Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI / KTI).

The postdoc will perform applied research on content-based document recommendation, term extraction, and named entity recognition, within Idiap’s NLP group, aiming for integration within the operational document retrieval system developed by our industrial partner for a large number of corporate customers. The project also involves researchers working on interface design.

Candidates should hold a PhD degree in information retrieval, natural language processing, or a related field. Strong skills in programming and software development and an interest for technology transfer are expected. While English is the main working language, knowledge of French would be an advantage.

The position is offered for 18 months. Review of the applications will start immediately and will continue until the position is filled. The appointment should start on October 1st, 2014.
