        Subject: Natural Language Processing position at the Department of Digital Humanities, KCL

Vacancy for a Research Fellow in Natural Language Processing
(part-time 66 % FTE)

King’s College London, Department of Digital Humanities

The Centre for e-Research at King’s College London is seeking to
appoint a research fellow to work on a pioneering project to measure
the impact of texts over time. The successful candidate should
specialise in the areas of text- and data mining, natural language
processing, semantic web technologies, and database analysis and
design. The postholder will spend two thirds of his or her time on
leading the technical research and development work of the
ImpactTracer project funded by the European Research Council in close
liaison with the Principal Investigator of the project, Professor
Christoph Meyer, and a research associate. The project aims to develop
the proto-type of a web-application capable of measuring and
visualising the impact of texts over time on other texts.

The post will be based at the College’s Strand campus in the Drury
Lane Building where the Centre for e-Research is located. Established
in 2008, the Centre for e-Research (CeRch) is a research centre
located in the Department of Digital Humanities in the School of Arts
and Humanities, aimed at facilitating interdisciplinary,
institutional, national and international collaboration. It works
collaboratively with researchers, research teams and groups, and has
partners in research projects across King’s College London.

The post is available from 1 June 2012 and is fixed until 30 April 2013.

The closing date for applications is 28 May 2012.
