博士后招聘 | 华威大学何瑜岚教授课题组招聘自然语言处理方向博士后研究
华威大学何瑜岚教授课题组招聘自然语言处理方向博士后研究员，有自然语言处理、深度学习、知识图谱、事件抽取、图模型、生物医学问答等相关经验或论文发表的同学优先。该项目为UKRI资助的5年图灵AI项目“Event-Centric Framework for Natural Language Understanding”，旨在研究一种以事件表示为中心的自然语言理解方法，通过图模型和知识图谱赋予相关方法推理和理解的能力。课题组以往论文发表等信息见主页：https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/dcs/research/nlp/
Full-time, fixed-term contract for 24 months with possibility to extend for a further 12 months.
Applications are invited for a Research Fellow position on the UKRI-funded Turing AI Fellowship project ‘Event-Centric Framework for Natural Language Understanding’ led by Prof. Yulan He. The 5-year project aims to develop a knowledge-aware and event-centric framework for natural language understanding, in which event graphs are built as reading progresses; event representations are learned with the incorporation of background knowledge; implicit knowledge is derived by performing reasoning over event graphs; and the comprehension model is developed with built-in interpretability and robustness against adversarial attacks.
There will be three research fellows appointed in different stages of the project. For this post, the successful candidate will primarily focus on event hypergraph representation learning and knowledge-aware Question-Answering. They will work closely with various industrial partners including AstraZeneca, Google and Actable AI. They will also join the wider network of Turing AI fellows and the Alan Turing Institute, the national AI and Data Science institute in the UK. There will be opportunities to develop research profile, to travel to give demos and presentations, and to write academic papers.
Candidates should hold a PhD degree in Computer Science or other relevant discipline. The successful candidate will possess skills in natural language processing and deep learning. Experience of knowledge graph, graph neural networks and/or biomedical QA would be beneficial.
The starting date will be as soon as possible after the interview.
Informal enquiries should be addressed to Professor Yulan He at Yulan.He@warwick.ac.uk.
If you have not yet been awarded your PhD but are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant on level 5 of the University grade structure (£30,497. Upon successful award of your PhD and evidence of this fact, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of level 6 of the University grade structure (£31,406 pa).
Full details of the duties and selection criteria for this role can be found in the vacancy advert on the University of Warwick’s jobs pages. You will be routed to this when you click on the Apply button.
