PhD position "Computational Linguistic Analysis of Software Artefacts" at Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany

The Ubiquitous Knowledge Processing (UKP) Lab (Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany) has an immediate opening for a PhD student to carry out research in the area of computational linguistics targeted at software artefacts as an application domain. The results of the software artefact analysis are embedded into an application context, such as software search in online repositories modeled as the information retrieval process. The student will join the team of an ongoing research project as a Research Assistant.

The ideal candidate should have a strong background in computer science and/or computational linguistics. Previous work experience with one of the themes mentioned above is a definite asset (M.Sc., or equivalent), but is not an absolute reuqirement. A keen interest in the topic and the will to pursue a doctoral degree in Natural Language Processing at the Computer Science Department of the Technical University of Darmstadt are expected.

The focus of UKP Lab is on semantic information management, computational analysis of user generated content, and applied lexical semantic processing. The group features a dynamic work environment, a highly motivated and integrated research team, a substantial industrial cooperation network, and was distinguished by several research awards for fundamental research since its establishment in summer 2006. Darmstadt s located in the southern part of the Rhine Main Area, which hosts one of the strongest IT-Clusters in Germany. The city has a preferable location in the center of Germany: not even half an hour away from the Rhine-Main International Airport in Frankfurt. 

Interested candidates are invited to send their application (CV, list of publications, statement of research interests and the names of three referees) to the address provided below (preferably by email: gurevych (at) tk (dot) informatik (dot) tu-darmstadt (dot) de).
