Postdoctoral position in "legal structures", Amsterdam, THE NETHERLANDS

http://www.uva.nl/en/about-the-uva/working-at-the-uva/vacancies/item/14-053.html

The 'Digging into Data project 'Legal Structures' is a joint project with 
Washington University (US) and the University of Amsterdam: Faculty of 
Humanities (ILLC) and Faculty of Law (ACLE). This postdoctoral project 
attempts to analyze the world's legal codes by focuses on machine coding 
of internal references in codes and laws. The intuition behind this 
approach is that fundamental differences among legal systems manifest 
themselves in the structure of the texts, and can be detected, 
parameterized, and visualized using computerized algorithms.

The project is looking for a postdoctoral researcher with an MA, MSc and 
PhD relevant to the subject, good programming experience, a background in 
computer science or artificial intelligence, and an interest in empirical 
legal studies and/or digital humanities. The postdoctoral researcher may 
be asked to do a limited amount of teaching, but no more than one class a 
week during one semester per academic year.

Application deadline: 20 March 2014. For more information, see
