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:
