Salary: £28,839 per annum.

Applications are invited for a research associate post as part of the EU FP7 funded INDECT Project. INDECT is a collaborative project between a large consortium of universities and organisations in Europe. York’s part of the programme focuses on natural language processing applied to analysis of web documents, blogs and social networks.

The successful applicant should, as a minimum, have a good general education in computer science preferably in computational linguistics. Knowledge and experience in the development and evaluation of natural language processing tools/algorithms will be highly desirable.

The research will seek to develop methods for learning from web documents, blogs and social networks.
