UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1, School of Computer Science, Temporary, 24 month post

Applications are invited for a temporary post of a UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 within UCD School of Computer Science.
What is the role of migration in the dynamics of cultural development as regards gender, ethnicity and demography? To answer this question, the EU-funded VICTEUR project will work with the SFI-funded Insight Centre for Data Analytics at UCD to explore large-scale historical text corpora from a computational perspective. This will allow us to study intra-European migration during the 19th century through the ‘macroscope’ of machine learning methods and the ‘microscope’ of literary scholarship.
The successful candidate for this role will work on developing new computational methods that use text mining and natural language processing to extract insights and trends from large collections of historical texts provided by the British Library. Applicants should have a PhD in Computer Science or a related disciplines, with a proven track record of research and publications in the areas of text mining and/or natural language processing. Excellent programming skills are essential. Ideally the candidate will also have some past experience of working with researchers from other disciplines.

The primary purpose of the role is to further develop your research skills and competences, including the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications, the development of funding proposals, the mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research led teaching.
