Tilde SIA invites applications for a research assistant position in proofing tools at the Tilde Research Department for a period of 21 month starting September 1, 2010.

Application deadline: July 1, 2010

The 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.
The specific position involves participation in the CLARA subproject Proofing tools and resources for under-resourced languages. The overall aim of the subproject is to develop proofing tools (mainly grammar checkers) for languages that currently do not have these technologies available. Two research directions are suggested. The first research direction will focus on multilinguality of grammar checking techniques. Existing grammar checking techniques will be evaluated to find language specific phenomena and new tools will be developed. The second research direction will be an investigation of the existing grammar checking methods and development of new methods to create suitable techniques to process deep syntactic structures of highly inflected languages.

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 are also invited to apply. As the project is intended to involve work on grammar checkers, applicant needs to have strong background in computational linguistics or computer science. Good knowledge of a language of Baltic countries is an advantage. In addition, as all CLARA training events will be in English, applicants need to have a good working knowledge of English. Women are particularly encouraged to apply.
