Description:

PhD scholarship in the Graduate Program 'Semantic Processing' jointly organized
by the Computational Linguistics Department at Heidelberg University and the NLP
Group at HITS gGmbH, Heidelberg, Germany (March 15th, 2011)

One PhD scholarship (salary EUR 1280/month, tax-free) is available for a student
working in the area of Computational Linguistics/Natural Language Processing.
Candidates are free to choose the topic of their PhD projects as long as they are
within the general interests of the faculty of the graduate program:

- Anette Frank: statistical semantics, discourse, information extraction
- Sebastian Padó: multilingual NLP, computational psycholinguistics
- Stefan Riezler: statistical machine translation, machine learning
- Michael Strube: discourse, generation, knowledge extraction

The scholarship will be granted initially for two years with the possibility for a one
year extension after successful evaluation.

Candidates should have a strong background in computational linguistics and
possess a Masters or a Diploma degree in either Computational Linguistics or
Computer Science/Linguistics with a specialization in Natural Language
Processing. Experience with machine learning, corpus-based methods and
statistics is a plus. We expect strong programming skills (Java, C++, or Python).

The graduate program 'Semantic Processing (http://semproc.cl.uni-heidelberg.de)
is jointly organized by the Computational Linguistics Department at the University
of Heidelberg (http://www.cl.uni-heidelberg.de) and the NLP Group at HITS gGmbH
(http://www.h-its.org/nlp). Members of the graduate program participate in a PhD
seminar series and may attend lectures at the university. The graduate program
provides a lively research environment in a group of PhD students. We encourage
interdisciplinary research activities with Computer Science, Linguistics,
Psychology, Geography and other disciplines.

To apply, please send your CV, a statement of research, a copy of your degree
certificate, and a study transcript before March 15th, 2011 to:
