The positions are for three years, starting with April 1st, 2015. The
group will be located in Darmstadt and Heidelberg. The funding follows
the guidelines of the DFG, and the positions are paid according to the
E13 public service pay scale.

The goal of AIPHES is to conduct innovative research in knowledge
acquisition on the Web in a cross-disciplinary context. To that end,
methods in computational linguistics, natural language processing,
machine learning, network analysis, and automated quality assessment
will be developed. AIPHES will investigate a novel, complex scenario
for information preparation from heterogeneous sources. It interacts
closely with end users who prepare textual documents in an online
editorial office, and who should therefore profit from the results of

We are looking for exceptionally qualified candidates with a degree in
Computer Science, Computational Linguistics, or a related study

cooperate in a multi-disciplinary team. Desirable is experience in
scientific work. Applicants should be willing to work with
German-language texts, and, if necessary, to acquire German language
skills during the training program. We specifically invite
applications of women. Among those equally qualified, handicapped
applicants will receive preferential consideration. International
applications are particularly encouraged.

Applications should include a motivational letter that refers to one
or two of the planned research areas of AIPHES [1], a CV with
information about the applicant’s scientific work, certificationsof
study and work experience, as well as a thesis or other publications
in electronic form. They  should be submitted until January 12th, 2015
to the spokesperson of the research training group, Prof. Dr. Iryna
Gurevych (Fachbereich Informatik, Hochschulstr. 10, 64289 Darmstadt)
