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 a motivated researcher to join, at a post-doctoral level, a project on Personalised News Recommendation. This project aims at improving the user engagement in a currently deployed system, by better capturing volatile user interests, while ensuring fairness and avoiding information polarisation (aka filter bubble).

The selected candidate will perform her/his work inside the Natural Language Processing team, interacting with scientists from the team, the centre and colleagues in Korea.


  • Ph.D. in machine learning.
  • Knowledge of latest developments in context-aware sequential recommendation. 
  • Good publication record in top-tier information retrieval or machine learning conferences.
  • Strong development skills, preferably in Python and knowledge of deep learning frameworks (preferably Pytorch or Keras)​



Application instructions

To submit an application, please send your CV, cover letter as well as the names of at least two references to, and

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.
