Description:

The Centre for Language Technology, under the Faculty of Humanities at the
University of Copenhagen, is inviting applications for a PhD scholarship in
Language Technology starting 1 February, 2010 for a period of up to three years.
The PhD scholar will be jointly associated with the Centre for Language
Technology and the Department of Computer Science, both at the University of
Copenhagen.

The PhD scholarship is announced within the interdisciplinary research area of
Information Technology and Language, which combines knowledge in computer
science with knowledge of linguistics. Large collections of written or spoken
corpora are currently being developed for a large group of languages, including
Danish. Tagged corpora make it possible to train machine learning algorithms
and other statistical models which are able to extract different kinds of
knowledge from language data.

This knowledge may concern syntactic or semantic information at word level, for
example parts of speech or meaning in a given context. Or it can relate to
syntactic structure - how to assign constituent or dependency structure to
phrases. Finally, it may concern the content of written or spoken corpora, which
is generally defined and represented in very different ways depending on the
model and the purpose.

The PhD project should focus on one or more of these aspects of knowledge
extraction, and the PhD scholar should relate to relevant language technology
applications, for instance development of lexical resources (computational
lexicons and wordnets), grammar in relation to parsing or statistically-based
machine translation, knowledge extraction for expert systems or training of
response types in adaptive dialogue systems. For further information see:

The application including all enclosures is to be submitted as a single pdf-file
to phdapplicationhum.ku.dk. Please write "PhD Scholarship20091708" in the
subject area of the email.

Applications Deadline: 17-Aug-2009
