The Parsing & Semantics research area at Xerox Research Centre Europe
(XRCE) is currently looking for an experienced researcher in statistical
natural language processing (NLP), with a deep understanding of machine
learning for NLP. The ideal candidate would have experience or
knowledge of parsing, information extraction, weak supervision, textual
entailment, and combining machine learning with expert knowledge.
Awareness of the healthcare domain is a plus. The applicant should have
a strong publication record and good coding skills. The seniority of
the appointment will depend on qualifications.

The successful candidate will be expected to identify challenging
problems, develop novel solutions, and work with business and
development teams to ensure that these solutions have a significant
impact. Senior researchers are expected to also lead research
projects. We work together with top academic partners and expect our
researchers to publish results in top-tier conferences and journals. We
also have multiple open innovation collaborations with academic partners

The Parsing & Semantics group concentrates on automatically
understanding text using syntactic and semantic analysis. The group
focuses on natural language processing methods for robust parsing,
semantic analysis, and information discovery, including the role of
context in determining meaning. We are particularly interested in
statistical models that exploit many sources of information, such as
context, corpora, domain knowledge, knowledge bases, and task
performance. The Parsing & Semantics group collaborates closely with
the Machine Learning for Services group and the Machine Learning for
Document Access and Translation group. We are also interested in
applying research results to practical applications and real-world
problems. Our general application focus is on converting unstructured
text into structured information, including facts and opinions. The
solutions we develop play a key role in Xerox's next generation document
and business process outsourcing services in domains such as customer
care, health care, financial services, and market analysis.
