Within an academic research context, you will work on a scalable high-performance software solution for data analytics applied to large bodies of free-text natural language data (particularly through semi-supervised feature learning, using context-sensitive token-based distributional semantics).
The QLVL research group at the Department of Linguistics at KU Leuven (University of Leuven) is looking for a Software engineer (2yr initial contract, full-time). Your task will be to work on a scalable high-performance software solution for data analytics applied to large bodies of free-text natural language data (particularly through semi-supervised feature learning, using context-sensitive token-based distributional semantics). More specifically, you will refine, optimize, and expand on an existing code base, addressing issues of scalability, parallelisation, data flow optimisation, and visualization of distributional patterns. The software that is to be developed will be used in both the Nephological Semantics (http://wwwling.arts.kuleuven.be/qlvl/NephoSem.html)and the project Machine Reading of Patient Records (MARS, http://wwwling.arts.kuleuven.be/qlvl/MARS.html). You have a master's degree in informatics/computer science. You have an outspoken interest in big data, data mining and data analytics, and you have solid knowledge of database technology, data structures and algorithms for large data, and programming in C/C++, Java, and Python. Experience with high-performance computing, especially using Apache Hadoop, Apache Spark and other environments supporting big data analytics, is considered an asset, as is experience with visualisation tools such as D3.js and with scientific computing tools such as Octave or MATLAB. Familiarity with the Linux operating system is required. Also, you are ready to work in an interdisciplinary and highly collaborative environment, and you are fluent in spoken and written English. Website: http://wwwling.arts.kuleuven.be/qlvl/Jobs.html The position starts in January 2016 at the earliest. If you are interested in this position, please send a statement of interest to QLVL@kuleuven.be no later than DECEMBER 9th, 2016. The letter should explain your motivation, and should contain a CV.
