Subject: Corpus Development: Ph.D. scholarship, Dublin City University


Funded Ph.D. scholarship in Bitext Creation and Annotation 2004-2007

The School of Computing and the National Centre for Language
Technology has secured a studentship for a Science Foundation
Ireland-funded Basic Research project on Bilingual Corpus Development
and Annotation. The project starts October 2004, and funding is for
three years at a rate of 12,000 p/a and fees.

Our ideal candidates would have a good background in Computing,
Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing; programming
experience in one or more of Java, Perl, C++, Prolog, Lisp etc, and a
strong interest in and motivation for research is strongly
recommended. The research involves knowledge of Lexical-Functional
Grammar and Bilingual Sub-Sentential tree alignment. We envisage that
the resources built will be primarily of use in the area of
Corpus-Based Machine Translation. The student would also work
alongside a postdoctoral researcher in probabilistic models of
generation.

For informal inquiries and further details, please contact:
