Support Description: PhD Studentships in Computational Linguistics, Speech Technology and Cognitive Science

The Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation (ILCC) at the University of Edinburgh invites applications for three-year PhD studentships starting in September 2014. 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 GBP 13,726 per year, plus tuition fees. The studentships are available for students from anywhere in the world, including overseas, EU, and UK nationals.

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