The Centre for Next Generation Localisation (CNGL) is a major 5-year 16.8 million Euro research centre funded by Science Foundation Ireland. Hosted at Dublin City University, the CNGL will involve more than 100 researchers across a consortium of leading Irish Universities (DCU, TCD, UCD and UL) and 9 industrial partners. The CNGL will develop new technologies for localisation of digital content by adapting it to domain, culture and language. For more details see: <http://www.computing.dcu.ie/news/newsitems/sem1_0708/josef/index.html>http://www.computing.dcu.ie/news/newsitems/sem1_0708/josef/index.html. One of the major research strands within the CNGL is Digital Content Management (DCM) (other research activities include Machine Translation, Speech Processing, MT-Speech integration, Localisation and Systems Framework). I am pleased to announce openings for 1 post-doctoral researcher and _four_ PhD student positions based at Dublin City University to conduct research in the area of information access for multilingual content. The main areas that we intend to cover include: - adaptive techniques for cross-language querying (both text and speech) - improved content indexing for multilingual content - user modelling and query adaptation for improved multilingual search - evaluation of techniques for multilingual retrieval Positions are open to be filled immediately. Post-doctoral research positions are typically for a period of 3 years and are funded to provide a salary from €40,000 - €45,000 depending on the candidate's background and experience. PhD positions are typically for 4 years, and students will receive a stipend of about €16,000 in addition to payment of registration fees. Staff will work in the well equipped laboratories of the CNGL and there is ample opportunity for travel. Candidates for these positions will ideally have a strong background in computing, with a demonstrated interest in information retrieval and/or natural language processing. In addition, we would expect that post-doctoral applicants would have a track record of relevant publications in the area.
