*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The Human Language Technology Center of Excellence (COE) at Johns Hopkins University seeks to hire outstanding junior and senior researchers in all areas of speech and language processing. Positions include research scientist and post-doc.

The COE, located near Johns Hopkins’ beautiful Homewood campus in Baltimore, Maryland, conducts long-term research on fundamental challenges that are critical for real-world problems. Its researchers publish widely.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D in computer science, linguistics, electrical engineering, or a closely related field.

Candidates should have a strong background in one or more of these areas:

Natural Language Processing and Understanding: Information extraction, knowledge distillation, semantics, sentiment, parsing, morphology, including low-resource languages

Machine Translation: Low-resource languages, large-scale training, phrase-based and syntax-based approaches

Speech Processing: Robust speech recognition and speaker identification (multiple languages, genres, and channels, limited resources), speech retrieval, language identification

Machine Learning: Large-scale learning, transfer learning, semi-supervised learning, data mining

Research Scientists: Research scientist positions are similar to faculty positions. Scientists are charged with setting the agenda for a research program, working with other members of the HLTCOE research team to pursue the organization’s cutting edge research goals, publishing research results in academic conferences, advising students, and (optionally) teaching University courses.

Senior applicants: A senior applicant should be an experienced researcher with a track record of high quality publications, and should also have significant experience in project management and a demonstrated ability in building HLT systems. Senior applicants should have experience equivalent to the level of associate professor. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.

Junior applicants: Junior applicants should have a strong record of publication, and demonstrated research experience. Applicants should have experience equivalent to those applying to assistant professor positions. Submit applications by January 2, 2012 for full consideration; however, applications will be accepted until positions have been filled.

Post-Docs: Recent PhD graduates may apply for postdoctoral positions, which last from 1-2 years. Applicants will be supervised by research scientists.

NOTE: Most research positions at the HLTCOE require US citizenship and a security clearance. If you do not already have a clearance, the HLTCOE will work with you to obtain one.
