'''About Us'''
+
'''Position Overview'''
IHMC (www.ihmc.us) is a not-for-profit research institute of the Florida University System and is affiliated with several Florida universities.
+
Researchers at IHMC pioneer technologies aimed at leveraging and extending human capabilities. These systems fit the human and machine components together in ways that exploit their respective strengths and mitigate their respective weaknesses. The design and fit of computational prostheses require a broader interdisciplinary range than is typically found in one organization, thus IHMC staff includes computer scientists, cognitive psychologists, neuroscientists, physicians, philosophers, engineers and social scientists of various stripes, as well as some researchers who resist all attempts to classify them.
+
Current active research areas include: knowledge modeling and sharing, adjustable autonomy, robotics, advanced interfaces and displays, communication and collaboration, computer-mediated learning systems, intelligent data and language understanding, software agents, expertise studies, work practice simulation, knowledge representation, and other related areas.
+
IHMC faculty and staff collaborate extensively with industry and government to develop science and technology that can be enabling with respect to society's broader goals. IHMC researchers receive funding (current funding in force exceeds $25,000,000) from a wide range of government and private sources. IHMC research partners have included: DARPA, NSF, NASA, Army, Navy, Air Force, NIH, DOT, IDEO, Nokia, Sun Microsystems, Microsoft, Boeing, Lockheed, and SAIC, among others.
+
  
The candidate will be appointed on a new  project on dialogue processing, due to start in the coming months and run for one year initially, with extensions expected. The aim of the project is to produce a prototype conversational Companion-in-an-iPad for a brain-damaged patient in a domestic setting. Ocala, Florida is an excellent location, close to Florida’s major university and about an hour from both coasts. IHMC is housed in an excellent, state of the art building in the city center.
+
The Linguistic Cognition Laboratory (http://lingcog.iit.edu) at the Illinois Institute of Technology has an opening for a postdoctoral researcher (full-time) in natural language processing.

Applications are invited for the position of a postdoctoral research fellow specialized in natural language processing and machine learning to join the Language Intelligence and Information Retrieval group of Prof. Marie-Francine Moens at the Department of Computer Science at KU Leuven, Belgium.
 +
The work will be conducted in the framework of the EU FP7 MUSE research project (http://www.muse-project.eu/) granted under the Future and Emerging Technologies ICT call. The MUSE project introduces a new way of exploring and understanding information by “bringing text to life” through 3D interactive storytelling. Taking as input natural language text like children’s stories or medical patient education materials, MUSE will process the natural language, translate it into formal knowledge that represents the actions, actors, plots and surrounding world, and then render these as virtual 3D worlds in which the user can explore the text through interaction, re-enactment and guided game play. The focus of the postdoctoral research at KU Leuven will be on semi-supervised and unsupervised models for machine reading (MR) when translating the content of text to knowledge representations. A possible additional focus is on scalable inference and learning. The position ideally starts September 1, 2013. Funding for this position is currently available for 2 years.

Topic description: In recent years, it has been suggested that statistical approach to spoken dialogue system offer a framework to naturally handle inherent uncertainty in the human speech. The two main advantages of statistical methods are increased robustness in noisy conditions and more natural behaviour learned from data. However, the current methods need large corpora effectively preventing these methods to be used for complex dialogue systems occurring in real-life. The successful PhD candidates will investigate and implement statistical models and methods with the aim of increasing the efficiency of the learning process and reducing the need for large corpora. The conducted research will cover areas of spoken language understanding, dialogue management, and natural language processing.  
+
The successful candidates will become part of the research team based at DCU, joining two leading academic MT/NLP/IR and Translation research groups (www.nclt.dcu.ie/, cttsdcu.wordpress.com/). The team’s location at DCU, minutes from Dublin city centre, offers a highly conducive environment for research, collaboration and innovation with a wealth of amenities on campus.
  
Skills: Candidates should hold a master degree in a relevant area, such as computer science, mathematics, engineering  or linguistics. A strong mathematical background, excellent programming skills (e.g. C/C++, Java, MATLAB, and various scripting languages under Linux environment), aptitude for creative research and autonomy are expected. Experience in machine learning, Bayesian methods, and natural language processing is a plus.

In the context of the COMMIT project Information Retrieval for Information Services (COMMIT/Infiniti http://www.project-infiniti.nl/), applications are invited for a PhD student position. The research task will be to investigate the Mining of Economic Entities. As currently people easily share their sentiment regarding companies and products, reputation modeling has become increasingly important for commercial and non-commercial organisations. Due to the huge amount of opinions available through the Web, a manual approach for social media analysis for sentiment mining seems unfeasible, while there seems to be a huge potential for content-driven automated approaches. Through the mining of economic entities and the aggregated sentiment based on textual data, the aim is to support decisions on, e.g., product developments, marketing campaigns, etc. The envisaged prototype for a decision support tool will act as an indicator of public sentiment and trends. In addition, the variation in the dynamics of opinion forming for diverging domains such as economic news, political sentiment, and sentiment towards historical events will be studied.
+
*Parsing, Analytics and Information Extraction:
The PhD track is embedded in the work of the EUR team working on the Infiniti project (Erasmus School of Economics/Econometric Institute/ Computer Science Group and Erasmus Studio) and the student will be able to collaborate on related topics with PhD students and researchers from other organizations participating in COMMIT.
