The Semantic Computing Group at Bielefeld University is looking to fill 
a position as research associate, either at PhD or postdoctoral level. 
The position is associated to the newly granted project "Pret-A-LLOD" 
which is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 
program. The goal of the project is to develop new principles for 
linguistic linked data publishing and to lay the foundations for a 
sustainable ecosystem of NLP services that exploit Linguistic Linked 
Data. The candidate is expected to develop new formalisms, tools and 
methods to manage and publish datasets as Linked Open Data. The focus of 
the Semantic Computing Group will be on developing novel approaches for 
indexing RDF datasets according to linguistic principles as a basis to 
develop novel and advanced NLP services that support querying and 
accessing data that is published on the Web following Semantic Web 
standards. As a specific objective the group intends to develop new 
tools for the generation and publication of grammars-as-a-service (GAAS) 
which can support the configuration, virtualization and deployment of 
Question Answering Systems over RDF data.

The following qualifications are mandatory:

1) Master's degree in computer science, computational linguistics or 

2) Solid programming skills and experience (e.g. Python or Java)

3) Strong analytical skills

4) Demonstrated ability to perform research (e.g. demonstrated via 

5) Knowledge of computational linguistics, computational semantics, 
and/or natural language processing

The following qualifications are a plus:

1) PhD in computer science or computational linguistics / natural 
language processing

2) Advanced knowledge of Semantic Web formalisms and methods (RDF, 
Linked Data, SPARQL)

3) Advanced knowledge in computational and compositional semantics

4) Practical Experience working with grammars, parsing, meaning composition

5) Experience with cloud architectures or virtualization (e.g. Docker)

The salary will be according to scale TV-L13 of the German University 
system, amounting to approx. 3.800 EUR per month before taxes, depending 
on civil status. It is a full time position. The starting date of the 
position is planned March 2019.

Applications and inquiries can be addressed to Prof. Dr. Philipp Cimiano 
(cimiano@cit-ec.uni-bielefeld.de). The deadline for applications is 
November 23rd. Interviews will be carried out in December.
