We’re looking to strengthen our language technology and semantic web research teams with a 2-year postdoc position based at KNAW Humanities Cluster in Amsterdam in the Digital Humanities Research Lab. The Amsterdam team is responsible for leading the task on language technology development of historical olfactory information extraction, i.e. detecting references to smells from old texts. Together with the other project partners in the Text Work Package, you would ensure that the language technology developed in Odeuropa can deal with historical language variation and that it is properly represented and findable in the Olfactory Knowledge Graph that is being developed as part of the Semantic Web Work Package.
Besides the Odeuropa tasks, you will be able to advance your own research line and supervise graduate students. Find out more about the vacancy and how to apply on the KNAW Humanities Cluster vacancies web page. The deadline for applications is 25 October 2021.
