CNRS Tenure-Track position: Machine Learning for Natural Language Processing

The CNRS is opening an attractive position in Machine Learning for Natural Language Processing.

This is a "tenure track" position started this year in France: a unique position called "Chaire Professeur Junior", with a fast and direct track to tenured, Senior CNRS Researcher (Directeur ou Directrice de Recherche) after a three to a six-year contract.

The general objective is to consolidate French laboratories of excellence in NLP (LIG, LISN, LORIA) on particularly strategic aspects or sovereign issues: automatic processing of the French language (written/oral), specific application domains with few learning resources or poorly covered by generic models (for instance, in the areas of security, defense, or health), as well as in connection with educational applications/platforms and assistance to people with disabilities. This position implies a reduced teaching load of 42 hours a year for the contract duration. Afterward, the role of Senior CNRS Researcher does not mean any mandatory teaching.

The tenure track includes a financial environment of 300,000 € for the project (200,000 € from ANR plus one Ph.D. thesis).

  • Deadline for submitting the application: 31/08/2022
  • Expected date of employment: 01/12/2022
