Welcome to the Minnesota NLP group! Minnesota NLP is a research group led by Dongyeop Kang (DK) in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. Our group aims to develop human-centered language technologies. We are an inter-disciplinary team drawing theories from linguistics, social sciences, and cognitive sciences, developing state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms, and making NLP systems to be more interactive and collaborative.

We recruit graduate and undergraduate students as well as faculty members who could lead the NLP group together with DK. If you are a student, please read this page and fill out this form. If you are interested in a postdoc or faculty position at UMN CS, please contact DK directly.
