Description:

To support our ambitious research programme we are looking to appoint a
postdoctoral research fellow to do research on natural language generation in
the MIME project. MIME (see http://www.dotrural.ac.uk/mime/ ) investigates
ways to underpin reconfigured rural emergency response services, by
examining how technology could support responders to incidents such as
road accidents. It is exploring the use of networked monitors to support
decision making and information management in the management of
casualties and the automatic generation of handover reports from responders
when more expert help arrives.

The successful candidate will have a good knowledge of natural language
processing techniques in general (at the postgraduate level) and preferably
some practical experience with NLG. The candidate will have a PhD or be
about to complete a PhD in Computer Science/ Artificial Intelligence or a
relevant discipline. Enthusiasm for digital technology and innovation relevant
to society and the economy is essential as is the ability to work in a cross-
disciplinary team including colleagues in computer science and engineering.

This post is funded by the EPSRC and it is anticipated that the project
activities will be completed within 9 months of the agreed start date. This
appointment will be made subject to the usual terms and conditions of
employment of the University.

Criteria
- An undergraduate or Masters degree in Computer Science or a related
discipline.
- A PhD degree in Computer Science/ Artificial Intelligence or a relevant
discipline (or be in the final stages of completion)
- Good knowledge of natural language processing techniques in general, at
the postgraduate level.
- Experience of delivering presentations and disseminating research.
- Experience of report writing and/or authorship of academic journal papers.
- Enthusiasm for innovation relevant to society and industry.
- Ability to work on own and with others.
- Excellent organisational and written and oral communication skills, including
electronic communication.

- Fluency in written and spoken English is essential to support public
engagement activities.
