The CNRS is opening an attractive position in Machine Learning for

Recherche) after a three to a six-year contract.

excellence in NLP (LISN, LIG, LORIA) on particularly strategic aspects

a year for the contract duration. Afterward, the role of Senior CNRS

project (200,000 € from ANR plus one Ph.D. t hesis).
