Postdoc on “Conversational Feedback: Multidimensional analyses and
modeling” (CoFee), Laboratoire Parole et Langage (Aix-En-Provence)
Applications are invited for an 18 months postdoctoral position on
linguistic feedback modeling.
The aim of the project is to study the interfaces between linguistic
domains (lexicon, prosody, kinesic) in the context of linguistic
feedback behaviors. Only candidates with experience with at least two
of the points below will be considered:
– speech and prosody
– dialogue / conversation / interaction analysis and modeling
– kinesics (especially facial expression and head movements)
– natural language processing
Concerning the kind of approaches considered both corpus/quantitative
and formal backgrounds are welcomed.
The position is planned to start around February 1st but we can
discuss about early or late starting period. The salary will be
determined according to the French university standards (about 1950 euros / month after tax and health insurance coverage for a young researcher). Funding for presenting
relevant research results into conferences comes with the position.
Speaking French will be a plus for everyday life in Aix-en-Provence,
but fluency in English is the minimal requirement.
The research lab is located in the center of Aix-en-Provence
(http://www.aixenprovencetourism.com/). Aix is a sunny middle-sized
city of South East France, nested in the Provence countryside, 30
minutes from the Mediterranean and 1h30 from the Alps.

involved in several large scale projects (Labex “Brain and Language
Research Institute” : www.blri.fr ; EQUIPEX Open Resources and Tools
for LANGuage (ORTOLANG) : www.ortolang.fr ; and Erasmus Mundus
“Multilingualism and Multiculturalism”: www.em-multi.eu ) offering a
stimulating research environment and large and diverse opportunities
