We are looking for a post-doc in neural machine translation as part of the Horizon2020 ICT RIA project “Bergamot: Browser-based Multilingual Translation“. If you have recently defended a PhD thesis (or are close to defending) and have experience with deep learning methods in machine translation and other sequence-to-sequence NLP, then this is your chance to work in close collaboration with several internationally renowned research groups and grow as an independent researcher.
The aim of the Bergamot project is to allow NMT engines to run offline in a web browser, while dynamically adapting to the user’s requirements, content and the surrounding context, as well as yielding controllable output quality. As part of the position you will work on faster and lighter multi-domain and multilingual NMT approaches that can adapt to various kinds of context info.
