The Web and Internet Science (WAIS) Research Group at the University of Southampton is offering two Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow ITN positions to join the Cleopatra project: These will start in Q2 2019.
With a rapidly increasing degree of integration among the European countries, a rising number of events, strongly impact the European community and the European digital economy across language and country borders. This development results in a vast amount of event-centric multilingual information available from different communities in the news, the Web and social media. Cross-lingual technologies to efficiently access, analyse and interact with this information are of utmost importance for various stakeholder groups across Europe, including digital humanities, memory institutions, publishers, media monitoring companies and journalists. The Cleopatra project offers a unique interdisciplinary, inter-sectoral research and training programme addressing these challenges.

We are looking for two Marie Curie Fellows to join Cleopatra, carrying out research to build human-in-the-loop solutions for cross-lingual, entity-centric text tasks.
