2 Post-doctoral positions at Spoken Language Systems Labs, INESC-ID, Lisbon


Topic: Speech-to-Speech Machine Translation


We seek candidates with excellent knowledge in statistical approaches to machine translation (and if possible also speech technologies) and strong programming skills. Familiarity with the Portuguese language is not at all mandatory, although the main source and target languages are Portuguese/English.

The positions are for a fixed term contract of length up to one year, in the scope of the research project PT-STAR (Speech Translation Advanced Research to and from Portuguese), in the framework of the Carnegie Mellon University-Portugal program (project CMU-PT/HuMach/0039/2008), financed by FCT (Foundation for Science and Technology).

The starting date for these positions is April 2011, or as soon as possible thereafter.

Candidates should send their CV (in .pdf format) to the email address given below as soon as possible, together with a motivation letter. Questions or other clarification requests should be emailed to the same address.

Email address for applications: lcoheur at l2f dot inesc-id dot pt
