The US Army Research Laboratory (ARL) is researching common-sense reasoning
and natural language understanding for the purpose of creating a
communication dialogue to promote increased intent understanding within
Human-Robot teams. In support of this effort, ARL is looking for an
individual with a PhD or equivalent, with interest and a background in
knowledge representation, knowledge bases, knowledge graphs, common-sense
reasoning, or spatial reasoning. We plan to make use of semantic vector
spaces to enhance the capabilities of the reasoning system, so some
familiarity with knowledge graph embedding, distributional semantic vector
spaces (such as GloVe or word2vec), or learning from massive text corpora
would also be beneficial.

The position is available immediately with a duty location at the Adelphi
Laboratory Center (ALC), Adelphi, MD.

To learn more about the position, or to apply, please send questions or a
CV to Dr. Douglas Summers-Stay via email at
douglas.a.summers-stay.civ at mail.mil.
