University of Edinburgh

The Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation (ILCC) at the University of
Edinburgh (formerly ICCS) invites applications for three-year PhD studentships
starting in September 2011. ILCC is dedicated to the pursuit of basic and applied
research on computational approaches to language, communication and cognition.
Primary research areas include:

Natural language processing and computational linguistics

Spoken language processing

Dialogue and multimodal interaction

Information extraction, retrieval and presentation

Computational theories of human cognition

Educational and assistive technology

Approximately 10 studentships from a variety of sources are available, covering
maintenance at the research council rate of around GBP 13 500 per year, plus
tuition fees.

Applicants should have a good honours degree or equivalent in computational
linguistics, speech technology, cognitive science, computer science, or a related
discipline.

For a list of academic staff at ILCC, their research areas, and a description of
potential PhD topics, please consult:
