The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics (MPI) in Nijmegen (Netherlands) invites applications for two Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions as research scholars (PhD) in language technology (linguistic infrastructures, interoperability, standards and semantic web).

Application deadline: 28. February 2010

The 3-year positions involve 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 7thFramework Programme (cf. http://clara.uib.no/; http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/).

The specific positions involve participation in the CLARA subproject Designing and Testing Common Infrastructures, which is lead by the MPI. The overall aim of the subproject is the design of the next generation of common language resource infrastructures and its advanced components on which future linguistic research will be based. 

The successful candidates will be offered enrollment in a PhD program at a related university. The candidates will be given joint PhD supervision by the MPI and academic staff at the related university. 

Applicants should hold a strong university degree (Masters/diploma or equivalent) which would entitle them to embark on a PhD project in a relevant discipline, and should be in the first four years of their research careers. Students who are completing their master's degree during the current semester, with the intention of starting the doctoral position in the spring semester 2010, are also invited to apply. The qualifying education must be completed before enrolment in the PhD programme. We expect successful applicants to take up their ESR positions in spring/summer 2010.

The salary of an ESR position is roughly EUR 34,000 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). There is a budget to cover participation costs, such as attendance at CLARA events abroad.

Women are particularly encouraged to apply.

For further information about the available positions (including salary enquiries) and project, please contact Thomas Koller, thomas.koller at mpi.nl

Applications should be submitted via e-mail to Thomas Koller, thomas.koller at mpi.nl
