The Language and Technology lab at the University of Iceland, led by assistant professor Dr. Anton Karl Ingason, is seeking to hire a full time post-doctoral researcher in Language Technology.
Our group works at the intersection of Language and Technology, focusing on automated assistance for language use (such as proofreading), corpora (especially treebanks) and parsing, Language Technology infrastructure, and the interfaces between language, society, and technology. We emphasize work that is related to the Icelandic language but the methods we use are in general language-independent.
The position’s start date is as soon as possible. The position is for 36 months.
The application materials must be submitted before the application deadline. The application must be in English or Icelandic and must include:
In recent studies, Iceland ranks #1 out of the countries evaluated by the Global Gender Gap Index (most equal) and the country also ranks #1 on the OECD Index for LGBTI inclusiveness. Iceland also has universal healthcare.
All applications will be answered and applicants will be informed about the appointment when a decision has been made.
Salaries follow the standardised wage agreements between the Association of University Teachers (Félag háskólakennara, www.fh.hi.is) and the Ministry of Finances.
Appointments to positions at the University of Iceland are made in consideration of the Equal Rights Policy of the University of Iceland.
The University of Iceland has a special Language Policy.
