Postodctoral position in Computational Argumentation and Information Quality at ILLC-UvA / Faculty of Humanities.

Deadline: 7th April 2023

What are you going to do?

With current developments in AI, the field of Computational Argumentation is rapidly growing. Recently, researchers have developed procedural methods for identifying the types of arguments, e.g., ‘argument from cause’, ‘pragmatic argument’, or ‘argument from expert opinion’, which can be used to annotate natural argumentative discourse and provide a basis for fine-grained argument reasoning. The appointed postdoc will contribute to this line of research on argument-checking and information quality by developing (computational) linguistic models of argument type identifcation and evaluation.

Tasks of the appointed postdoc will include:

• Modeling linguistic features of various argument types relevant for determining the validity and strength of the underlying reasoning;
• Combining existing work on the identification and evaluation of arguments by project research group members of the ILLC (EPS unit), ACLC (LANCAR group) and CWI (Human-Centered Data Analytics group);
• Supporting the development of an ontology for argument modeling and designing crowdsourcing tasks for argument type identification and evaluation.

Your tasks and responsibilities:

• conducting research, presenting intermediate research results at workshops and conferences and publishing single- and /or co-authored peer reviewed articles;
• participating in meetings of the project research group and developing a shared dataset, ontology, and prototype crowdsourcing task;
• co-organising knowledge dissemination activities.
