Open Research Positions: Centre for Next 
Generation Localisation (CNGL) Dublin, Ireland.

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 

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.

To apply, please send by email: a CV, a short 
statement of why you are applying for this 
position and contact details of three references 
to Dr Gareth Jones, email: 
In your application please indicate your 
preferred starting date if successful. Informal 
inquiries about the positions are very well welcome.

Closing date for applications is 30th April 2008, 
although applications will be considered until all positions are filled.
