Post-Doc : Computational linguist (Brno)

Logo Masaryk University

The successful candidate will develop their own research direction in consultation with the Principal Investigator (Dr. David Zbíral), focusing on the computational text processing and analysis of medieval inquisitorial records, e.g. building and maintaining NLP pipeline, stylometric and semantic analysis (word frequency and word co-occurrence, word embeddings, lexical dispersion, measures of lexical richness, measures of distance of texts, text reuse analysis, semantic distribution models) etc. The broader team also works extensively on the manual coding of inquisitorial material, offering a close-reading layer to be compared and contrasted with the distant-reading analysis of the textual corpus provided by NLP techniques. Dissident Networks Project (DISSINET), an ERC Consolidator Grant, focuses on various computational approaches to Christian dissent and inquisition, also including social network analysis and geographic information science: the successful candidate will have the opportunity to produce mixed-methodology work in this collaborative context. The ERC-funded position thus represents a unique opportunity for building a truly cutting-edge research profile.
