瑞士苏黎世大学博士后职位---神经科学与计算语言学

Postdoc Position In Neuroscience And Computational Linguistics

University Of Zurich

Description

Department of Comparative Linguistics

Postdoc position in Neuroscience and Computational Linguistics

100 %

The Swiss National Center for Competence in Research 'Evolving Language', which involves nearly 40 different research groups from a large variety of disciplines across Switzerland, seeks to fill a two-year postdoc position in neuroscience and computational linguistics. The position is part of the work package "Structure Planning", lead by Anne-Lise Giraud, Balthasar Bickel and Martin Meyer in collaboration with other NCCR members. The post-doc will primarily work at the University of Geneva (Campus Biotech) in Giraud's lab but will also spend time at the Department of Comparative Linguistics at the University of Zurich.

Your responsibilities

Our goal is to understand how hierarchical syntactic structures are generated during speaking in the brain. The postdoc will use intracranial EEG data (e.g. neural oscillations) to study the neural underpinnings of syntactic planning processes in (mostly French) narrative speech, integrating methods from corpus and computational linguistics (e.g., machine learning techniques, information-theoretic measures, etc.) with EEG signals and speech patterns.

Your profile

The ideal candidate holds a PhD in (computational) linguistics, cognitive science, psychology, computer science or a related field, is experienced in working and thinking quantitatively, has solid knowledge of syntax and linguistics, and has an interest in the experimental study of language processing and production. Experience with programming (e.g., R, Python), machine learning techniques and computational linguistics tools is essential; experience with EEG or other neuroimaging methods is an advantage. A good level of French in speaking and writing is also an essential requirement.

What we offer

We offer varied and interesting work in an inspiring and socially relevant environment. The NCCR places great emphasis on gender diversity, and we particularly encourage women to apply.

Place of work

Geneva / Zurich

Start of employment

Employment start date to be mutually agreed. Please submit your application via the job portal of the University of Zurich. Apart from their CVs, applicants should submit:

  A sample of their writing,

  Names of 2-3 people willing to provide a letter of reference, and

  A cover letter explaining their expertise and interest in the topic and the project.

Applications should be submitted as a single PDF entitled "YOURFAMILYNAME- StructurePlanningPostdoc.pdf", with subject header "Structure Planning Postdoc". Applications will be reviewed starting August 16, 2021. The position remains open until filled.
