Open Research Positions: Centre for Next Generation Localisation (CNGL) 

Dublin, Ireland.

 

The Centre for Next Generation Localisation (CNGL) is a major 5-year 

16.8 million euro research centre funded by Science Foundation Ireland.  

 

Hosted at Dublin City University, the CNGL will involve more than 100 

researchers across a consortium of leading Irish Universities 

(DCU, TCD, UCD and UL) and 9 industrial partners. The CNGL will develop 

new technologies for localisation of digital content by adapting it to 

domain, culture and language.  For more details see: 

http://www.computing.dcu.ie/news/newsitems/sem1_0708/josef/index.html.

 

One of the major research strands within the CNGL is Digital Content 

Management (DCM) (other research activities include Machine Translation, 

Speech Processing, MT-Speech integration, Localisation and Systems 

Framework). 

 

I am pleased to announce openings for 1 post-doctoral researcher and 

_four_ PhD student positions based at Dublin City University to 

conduct research in the area of information access for multilingual 

content.

 

The main areas that we intend to cover include:

 

- adaptive techniques for cross-language querying (both text and speech)

 

- improved content indexing for multilingual content

 

- user modelling and query adaptation for improved multilingual search

 

- evaluation of techniques for multilingual retrieval

 

 

Positions are open to be filled immediately.  

 

Post-doctoral research positions are typically for a period of 3 years 

and are funded to provide a salary from €40,000 - €45,000 depending on 

the candidate’s background and experience.

 

PhD positions are typically for 4 years, and students will receive a 

stipend of about €16,000 in addition to payment of registration fees.

 

Staff will work in the well equipped laboratories of the CNGL and there 

is ample opportunity for travel.

 

Candidates for these positions will ideally have a strong background in 

computing, with a demonstrated interest in information retrieval and/or 

natural language processing.  In addition, we would expect that post-

doctoral applicants would have a track record of relevant publications 

in the area.

 

 

To apply, please send by email: a CV, a short statement of why you are 

applying for this position and contact details of three references to 

Dr Gareth Jones, email: Gareth.Jones at computing.dcu.ie. In your 

application please indicate your preferred starting date if successful.
