Postdoctoral Fellow

The Human Language Technology Center of Excellence (HLTCOE) at Johns Hopkins University seeks to hire outstanding visiting researchers in any area of speech and language processing. Applicants must have or be near to obtaining a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline and a strong research record. A successful candidate will be integrated into one of our existing research teams to conduct world class research and development on such problems as authorship identification, information extraction, knowledge graph population, machine translation, multilingual information retrieval, speaker and language identification, and speech recognition. Candidates should have excellent verbal and written communication skills, competency in programming and a strong publication record in relevant areas. This role will be ideal for someone wishing to pursue an academic career, who wants to come and learn a particular skill or body of knowledge from a HLTCOE advisor, and who can contribute to a HLTCOE focus area in the process.


Why the HLTCOE?


Located adjacent to Johns Hopkins’ beautiful Homewood campus in Baltimore, Maryland, the HLTCOE conducts long-term and applied research on fundamental challenges driven by real-world problems. Its staff scientists publish widely in premier venues, and, through close collaboration with members of the Center for Language and Speech Processing (CLSP), make Johns Hopkins one of the world’s largest and growing academic research groups in the field.


Centrally located on the east coast, Baltimore is affectionately known as Charm City because of its friendly people, thriving arts scene, and multitude of restaurants and pubs. The center of the city is the Inner Harbor, home to features such as the National Aquarium, historic Federal Hill, and two professional sports teams. It is famous for its crab cakes, and rich in the arts, from a variety of museums to children’s centers and a symphony orchestra. Just outside the city are abundant natural settings great for hiking, biking, and other outdoor adventures. Baltimore is part of the east coast corridor, just a short train, bus, or car ride away from Washington D.C., Philadelphia, and New York. Best of all, Baltimore is affordable: many Hopkins employees own homes in adjacent neighborhoods, close enough to the University to walk or bike to work, or to take public transportation.
