Postdoc in Natural Language Processing for Social Science (Stanford, CA, USA)

Stanford University announces a postdoctoral fellowship, with initial term of October 1, 2018 to September 30, 2019 with the potential for renewal.

The postdoc would join our project on using Natural Language Processing to study the rise and propagation of language, framing, and concepts over time, especially in scientific research but also in other media like newspapers. We are also interested in general change in language over time and specifically also in the role of team diversity on research topics.

The postdoc would be mentored by Dan Jurafsky (Linguistics and Computer Science), and Dan McFarland (Education). The postdoc would be housed in the Stanford NLP Group, a fun, collaborative group providing many opportunities for learning, hands-on research and teamwork. See http://nlp.stanford.edu/
