AI Developer - Center on Knowledge Graphs - (position # 1041)Apply Now
This position is available immediately.
Posted on December 14, 2020
The Center on Knowledge Graphs is looking for AI developers to help build the next generation of systems to turn data into knowledge. Our projects include building knowledge graph infrastructure and solving hard problems like identifying reproducible research papers, question answering and dialogue, understanding data in tables and spreadsheets, learning about competitive relationships between businesses, and creating useful summaries from datasets under projects. Our systems are implemented in Python and use probabilistic graphical models, deep learning, language models, and decision trees. Ideal candidates should have a mastery of Python and have taken Algorithms and an AI or ML course. A familiarity with knowledge graphs, graph DBs, and knowledge representation are also encouraged.
Research Assistant - NLP & KA - Natural Language Understanding and Knowledge Acquisition (position # 1039)Apply Now

The Language Understanding and Knowledge Acquisition Lab has openings for part-time research assitantship to work in the research area of representation learning for NLU, NLG and automated knowledge acquisition from structured or unstructured data. The research assistant should be highly motivated to lead an individual research project that will be developped to a research paper published in a top-tier venue (employed trainees of this position have successfully published papers in top-tier conferences such as ACL, EMNLP, SIGIR, etc.), should have good proficiency in a deep learning framework such as PyTorch or Tensorflow. Ideally, the candidate is expected to have solid experiences with NLP packages such as Huggingface, AllenNLP, or graph representation learning packages such as DGL. This is a paid position for up to 20 hours per week. Interested applicants please apply though this website, at the same time fill in the questionaire at https://forms.gle/4vfJiFqJg7n8Uodn8

Applications can be submitted year round and will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
UI Developer for NLP Projects - UI Developer for Event Script Curation (position # 1070)Apply Now
This position is available immediately.
Posted on July 28, 2022
Researchers on the LESTAT team are developing an interactive tool for curating the results of NLP tools applied to script discovery for complex, real world events. The student researcher on this project will work with us to improve the interactive experience. The student researcher will have the opportunity to contribute to design of new modes of interaction, work on both front end and back end implementation and explore how human-machine interaction is impacted by imperfect automatic processes. The student researcher should expect to spend some of their time on development and some of time creating the structured descriptions of the real world events using the UI. This will highlight the interface's capabilities and improve their understanding of the interactions needed to represent events in this format. The ideal candidate is comfortable with Python, Git, frontend frameworks like Angular and React, and is interested in learning about designing for the applications of machine learning. The position is remote and managed out of ISI’s Boston office. The position is for 15-20 hours a week. The student should be available for at least 10 hours a week during ET working hours (i.e. M-F: 10am – 5pm ET/ 7am – 2pm PT). For more information about the demo, see: Manuel Ciosici, Joseph Cummings, Mitchell DeHaven, Alex Hedges, Yash Kankanampati, Dong-Ho Lee, Ralph Weischedel, and Marjorie Freedman. 2021.
