Hours: Full Time

We seek to appoint up to 2 highly motivated, research-focused individuals as Lecturers in Natural Language Processing (NLP) or Information Retrieval (IR) in the Machine Learning Group at the Department of Computer Science, University of Liverpool. The successful candidates will conduct world-leading research in NLP and IR, and contribute to the teaching of modules and supervision of student projects related to their fields of expertise in the Department of Computer Science at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The appointments will be based on the proven research track record or industrial experience of the candidates. We value theoretical, applied, and interdisciplinary research in NLP/IR, covering all aspects of NLP/IR including but not limited to: lexical and semantic composition, syntactic and semantic parsing, named-entity recognition, representation learning, relation extraction, information extraction, sentiment and emotion analysis, argument mining, computational social sciences, ethics and responsible NLP, interpretability, phonology, summarisation, machine translation, voice enabled devices, online chatbots, machine learning for NLP, and question answering. We welcome applications from outside academia including those who would like to move to academic positions on a part-time basis while continuing working in the industry. We value both fundamental research in NLP/IR demonstrated by publications in top venues as well as research leading to industrial or social impact outside academia. Researchers with an excellent track record in other relevant areas will also be considered.

We welcome applications from all sectors of the community. This post is a full-time position, but we recognise that many individuals value flexibility in their work/life balance and we will consider applications to work on a part-time, flexible and job share basis wherever possible (a minimum of 0.5 FTE). We are working to improve the gender balance in the Department of Computer Science, and we particularly encourage applications from women. Please note that in terms of responsibilities and recognition, the position of a newly appointed lecturer in the UK is comparable to that of an assistant professor in the United States.
