Postdoctoral position at the University of Bern and the Bern University of Applied Sciences

    The SCAI – Swiss Center for Augmented Intelligence ( is a national competence center for the development and implementation of augmented intelligence. This center is an initiative of the Swiss Capital Region and focuses on three strategic priorities: an interdisciplinary scientific center of excellence, an independent national reference institution for augmented intelligence and an “Innovation & Partnership” pole for the joint development of projects with companies and the public sector.

    In the context of this interdisciplinary project, we are looking for a postdoctoral researcher in
    the field of natural language processing for a shared position among the University of Bern
    (Unibe) and the Bern University of Applied Sciences (BFH), starting in early 2024 or as soon as possible. The contract will be 50% with BFH and 50% with Unibe, and have an initial

    • Collaboration with different Universities, Universities of Applied Sciences, and
    industry partners as member of the Swiss Center for Augmented Intelligence (SCAI)
    • Visibility of own research and networking at multiple institutions across Switzerland
    • Flexibility on research topics; possibility to explore the candidate's own interests
    upon discussion
    • Possibilities to (co-)supervise students

    planned in the context of SCAI (e.g., workshops, public conferences, etc.), and the
    communication/dissemination of research results for both the scientific community (top-tier
