An exciting new opportunity has arisen for a Lecturer (Teaching & Research) in Natural Language Processing (NLP) to join Cardiff University’s School of Computer Science and Informatics.
The successful candidate will be dedicated to finding creative solutions and have a genuine curiosity and enthusiasm to undertake world-class research relevant to the School’s Natural Language Processing research group, including in (but not restricted to) lexical semantics, natural language understanding, multilingual NLP or common-sense reasoning.
The School is proud of our record of generating impact through cross-disciplinary collaboration with other schools and industry, and particularly welcomes candidates with an interest in applying their research to challenges in areas such as healthcare, entertainment, accessibility, crime & security or social interaction.
