In this postdoctoral position, the candidate will conduct research in areas related to natural language understanding. Several tasks will be worked on: semantic text similarity, meaning of a sentence and paragraph, distributional semantics, applications of word2vec, information extraction and others. Applications of these technologies will include natural language interface to data bases and regulatory documents processing among others. Collaboration with members of the same team as well as other teams is required. Work will combine elements of academic and industrial research: algorithm development, papers/patents generation, algorithm implementation, collaboration with product teams. The World is Our Laboratory: No matter where discovery takes place, IBM researchers push the boundaries of science, technology and business to make the world work better. IBM Research is a global community of forward-thinkers working towards a common goal: progress.
