Description:

The Dept of Computing at Macquarie University, in Sydney, Australia is recruitingPhD students interested in Machine Learning, Statistical Modelling and ComputationalLinguistics.  While my own research focuses on syntactic parsing of text and speech,and Bayesian models for learning grammars (seehttp://web.science.mq.edu.au/~mjohnson/ ), students interested in any area ofcomputational linguistics can apply.

Macquarie University has very active language acquisition and psycholinguisticsgroups (e.g., we have a MEG machine for real-time brain imaging). It's a great placefor anyone interested in computational models of language acquisition orpsycholinguistics, and Sydney is a wonderful place to live!

These scholarships are 2010067 and 2010068 in the on-line form, but I suggest youcontact Mark.Johnsonmq.edu.au before beginning the formal application process.

Applications Deadline: 30-Aug-2010
