Candidates are expected to have a good publication record at top NLP and/or machine learning venues, excellent initiative, and communication skills. We have a preference for candidates with a background in designing and implementing deep learning models and in reinforcement learning. The primary responsibilities are to conduct independent research, and to collaborate with junior students. There will be minimal duties in terms of teaching, reporting or grant writing. Several past post-docs from the RL Lab are now in faculty positions in North America and abroad.
