UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1

Updated: about 1 month ago
Location: Ireland,
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 13 May 2024

University College Dublin is currently recruiting a post-doctoral researcher to implement natural language processing (NLP) tools to analyse interview data.

Fixed term contract for 2 years with a proposed start date of 1st September 2024. Application deadline: 13th May, 12:00 noon (Irish time).

The postdoc will work with the Principal Investigator, Dr Stephanie Dornschneider-Elkink, to deliver the research objectives of an Irish Research Council-funded project. The project combines quantitative text analysis/NLP with cognitive mapping (Axelrod 1976) to examine interviews with participants in Muslim resistance movements.

You will support the development and subsequent publication of new tools to convert text into cognitive maps. Tasks will include but are not limited to POS-tagging, sequence analysis, word embeddings, and visualization. You will have the chance to give substantial input to the analysis and to co-author papers with the PI.

Knowledge of Arabic is not necessary, but a plus. Strong knowledge of R and/or Python is essential. One aim of the work package is to develop new R packages for the translation of natural language into cognitive maps.
