PHD STUDENTSHIPS IN COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS, SPEECH
TECHNOLOGY AND COGNITIVE SCIENCE

Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation
School of Informatics
University of Edinburgh

*** Note earlier deadline ***

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:
