Job description: The applicant will support the AAC working group in

innovative methods in exploiting middle to large sized text corpora 
(of predominantly German language texts). Acting as a member of a 
group of scholars engaged in corpus research, a readiness to

encoding and programming tasks, documenting his/her work in form of 
regular publications either as a single or as a co-author.

Requirements: The researcher we are looking for has a degree 
(preferably PhD) in computer science, informatics, corpus 
linguistics, general linguistics or any other discipline in the 
humanities with a research focus on IT related issues and has strong 
programming skills (preferably C++, Delphi and/or scripting 
languages). Ideally, he/she has a background in applied research 
making use of written textual resources, has experience with applied 
research on textual data, and has an international research track 
record and publication record in the field.

How and where to apply: The AAC - Austrian Academy Corpus 
(http://www.aac.ac.at/) is a research department based within the 
Austrian Academy of Sciences, which is mainly funded by the Austrian 
Federal Ministry of Science and Research, and is situated in the 
historic centre of Vienna (Austria). Interested applicants should 
submit a CV along with a statement of research interests and letters 
of reference (if to hand). The position is open until filled, the 
duration of the contract will be at least for one year with the 
possibility of extension to a long-term or permanent position.
