NAVER LABS Europe

NAVER LABS Europe

 

NAVER LABS Europe's mission is to advance the state-of-the-art in Ambient Intelligence, while paving the way for these innovations into a number of NAVER flagship products and services. This includes research in models and algorithms to give humans faster and better access to data and to allow them to interact with technology in simpler and more natural ways.

We are looking for applications from research scientists at all levels (from post-docs to senior scientists) to make outstanding contributions to the invention, development and benchmarking of natural language processing techniques for modeling text, information extraction, machine translation, opinion mining, multi-modal dialogue, question & answering, information retrieval and interactive learning.

At NAVER LABS we encourage participation in the academic community. Our researchers collaborate closely with universities and regularly publish in venues such as ACL, EMNLP, KDD, SIGIR, ICML and NeurIPS.

Requirements:

  •           Ph.D. in natural language processing (NLP) or machine learning.
  •           Knowledge of latest developments in statistical and deep learning as applied to NLP.
  •           Strong publication record in top-tier NLP, information retrieval or machine learning conferences.
  •           Strong development skills, preferably in python and knowledge of relevant frameworks (spacy, sklearn, tensorflow, pytorch, etc).

About NAVER LABS

NAVER LABS is an ambient intelligence company owned by NAVER Corporation, Korea’s leading internet company. NAVER operates the nation’s top search portal “NAVER,” and other innovative services in the global market including mobile messenger LINE, video messenger SNOW and community app BAND. It has annual revenue of more than 3 billion euros. 

NAVER LABS is a world class team of self-motivated and highly engaged researchers, engineers and interface designers collaborating together to create next generation ambient intelligence technology and services that are rich with the organic understanding they have of users, their contexts and situations.

Since 2013 the LABS have led NAVER’s innovation in technology through products such as the AI-based translation app ‘Papago’, the omni-tasking web browser ‘Whale’, the virtual AI assistant ‘WAVE’, AMBIDEX, the biologically-inspired robotic arm, in-vehicle information entertainment system ‘AWAY’ and AROUND, the 3D indoor mapping robot.

We look for people who like to take on new challenges, who collaborate beyond team boundaries and who believe in user value.  We’re working toward creating a better world where people can focus on what’s important in life rather than having to spend time constantly learning new tools.

Join us and ‘Never stop dreaming…

NAVER LABS Europe has positions, Ph.D and PostDoc opportunities throughout the year which are advertised here and on international conference sites that we sponsor such as CVPR, ICCV, NIPS, EMNLP etc. Internships are posted on a separate page.

The Labs are in Grenoble in the French Alps. We have a multi and interdisciplinary approach to research with scientists in machine learning, computer vision, artificial intelligence, data analytics, natural language processing, ethnography and UX working together to create next generation ambient intelligence technology and services that deeply understand users and their contexts.
