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 5 studentships for EU and UK students are available.
These cover maintenance at the research council rate of around
GBP 13 500 per year, plus tuition fees at the EU/UK rate.
Applicants should have a good honours degree or equivalent in
computational linguistics, speech technology, cognitive science,
computer science, or a related discipline.
