Short-term research internship/position
-- Comparing and Improving Lexical Representation Standards
Inria is looking for a highly motivated young researcher
(PhD or PhD Student) to provide an in-depth analysis of the ISO 24613 (Lexical Markup
Framework - LMF) and its current application in both the Text Encoding
Initiative (TEI) guidelines and the W3C OntoLex initiative.
The researcher’s background and skills should comprise:
- Research interest in lexical information (from a
lexicographic, corpus linguistic or computational linguistic viewpoint). The
researcher may work on his/her own data.
- Understanding of data modeling in XML and/or
OWL, with basic skills in XSLT. Experience with XML schema languages is a plus.
The core activity of the short research stay will be to
examine how well the LMF meta-model is reflected in the TEI guidelines and the
current OntoLex specification, in order to create a customisation of the TEI
guidelines that has at least the same coverage as the Ontolex specification.
The work will include gathering lexical samples that could serve as a proof of
concept for this customisation.
Salary: may range from 1100€ to 2100€ (after
deductions) depending on status and experience
Duration: 5-month employment, starting as soon as possible
Location: Berlin (Germany) with the work contract
established in France. Depending on the current location and constraints of the
applicant, the precise organisation of work can be subject to further
Contact: application comprising research CV and motivation
