Job description

The Department of Informatics is looking to appoint a Research Associate to work on the EPSRC project "A framework for evaluating and explaining the robustness of NLP models" led by Dr Oana Cocarascu at King's College London, starting in June 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter. The project focuses on developing approaches to evaluate the robustness of NLP models, in particular for argument mining and fact verification in various modalities, and to generate explanations for robustness failures. The position is for 27 months.

The successful candidate will be responsible for researching and delivering novel methods to evaluate the robustness of NLP models for argument mining and fact verification as well as novel algorithms for robustness explanations. The RA will also be expected to collaborate with our industrial partners and submit publications to top-tier conferences and journals in NLP and AI.

Candidates will have completed a PhD (or be close to completion) in a relevant field such as Natural Language Processing or Artificial Intelligence, and be able to demonstrate a strong track record of independent research and high-quality publications. Essential skills include excellent Python programming, NLP techniques, ability to work with others and organise own work, and proven communication skills.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for a maximum of 27 months, or until the end of the grant on 30 November 2026 depending on start date.

This is a full-time post.

Key responsibilities

  • Conduct research in robustness of NLP models as required to meet the project objectives.
  • Design and implement advanced algorithms for evaluating and explaining robustness of NLP models.
  • Work collaboratively with industrial project partners.
  • Publish high-quality research papers.
  • Attend project meetings, conferences and other events as required.

The above list of responsibilities may not be exhaustive, and the post holder will be required to undertake such tasks and responsibilities as may reasonably be expected within the scope and grading of the post.
