The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen (Netherlands) invites applications for a position as Experienced Researcher (ER) in Multimedia and Multimodality Resources and Technology.

Application deadline: 15. February 2010

The 2-year position involves participation in the EU project CLARA - Common Language Resources and their Applications, which is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network receiving funding from the European Commission's 7th Framework Programme (cf. http://clara.uib.no/; http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/).

The specific position involves participation in the CLARA subproject Multimedia and Multimodal Communication Modeling, which is a cooperation between the MPI and Københavns Universitet (UCPH). The overall aim of the subproject is the creation of multimedia and multimodal resources and advanced processing components in order to study human communicative behavior empirically. This will require the design and development of new types of speech and/or video processing modules and of adequate annotation schemes. The projects at the MPI and at UCPH will complement each other. 

Applicants should hold a university degree (Masters/diploma or equivalent with additional four years of research experience or a PhD), and should be within the first five years of their research careers. We expect the successful applicant to take up the ER position as soon as possible.

The salary is roughly EUR 53,000 per year. The income is taxable and all compulsory deductions under national law will be made. There are additional mobility and travel allowances (yearly allowance) as well as a career exploratory allowance. There is a budget to cover participation costs, such as attendance at CLARA events abroad. 

Women are particularly encouraged to apply.
