>> The Vision and Content Engineering Laboratory (LVIC) of the CEA LIST,
>> France, is looking for a PhD student to work in the area of building
>> annotated multilingual linguistic resources. The LVIC is specialized in
>> multilingual and multimedia information extraction and retrieval.
>> 
>> Thesis title: Cross-language projection of linguistic annotations using
>> parallel and comparable corpora
>> 
>> Thesis subject:
>> ------------------
>> 
>> Annotating corpora with linguistic information (part-of-speech tagging,
>> sense tagging, syntactic analysis, named entity identification, semantic
>> role annotation) involves significant human efforts. The availability of
>> parallel corpora and some resource-rich languages (such as English which
>> has large amounts of annotated corpora and several analysis tools
>> available) has recently led to several research works in order to
>> project linguistic annotations from the resource-rich source language to
>> a target language with less resources. The goal of cross-language
>> projection is, on the one hand, to provide all languages with linguistic
>> annotations, and on the other hand, to automatically induce text
>> analysis tools for these languages.
>> 
>> Scientific challenges of cross-language projection of linguistic
>> annotations from parallel corpora are related to the results of word
>> alignment tools and the syntactic divergences of the source and target
>> languages. Indeed, each word of the source language can map to single,
>> multiple, or zero words in the target language, and part-of-speech
>> tagsets for source and target language may be different. Many efforts
>> have been developed to project linguistic annotations from resource-rich
>> languages to other languages but most of them have only explored
>> approaches applying one-to-one mapping.
>> 
>> This thesis falls within the scope of automating the process of building
>> annotated multilingual linguistic resources. The main purpose in this
>> process is to identify lexical, syntactical and semantic equivalences
>> across parallel or comparable corpora.
>> 
>> The proposed subject aims to explore and experiment new approaches for
>> language-independent projection for linguistic resources construction
>> and annotation. It proposes to tackle this issue based on the following
>> areas:
>> 
>> - Constitution of aligned sentences and sub-sentences from comparable
>>  corpora using statistical and cross-language information retrieval
>>  approaches.
>> 
>> - Building bilingual lexicons of single words and multiword expressions
>>  using word alignment.
>> 
>> - Exploring rule-based, heuristic-based and hybrid approaches for
>>  mapping linguistic annotations using parallel corpora.
>> 
>> Candidate profile: The successful candidate must be at greatest 26 years
>> old by December 2013, will have a Master's degree (or equivalent
>> qualification) in Computer Science with a good background in
>> Computational Linguistics.
>> 
>> Please send a CV, a cover letter, letters of recommendation and report
>> card to: Nasredine Semmar (nasredine.semmar at cea.fr) and Laurent Besacier
