|Support Description:||The University of Cambridge ALTA Institute for research on automated language teaching and assessment funded by Cambridge English Language Assessment is offering four doctoral studentships to suitably qualified applicants with qualifications and/or experience in the areas of computational and/or corpus linguistics, speech recognition, and/or machine learning. Following on from our work on the English Profile Programme, Cambridge English Language Assessment will fund a new institute to undertake research on Automated Language Teaching and Assessment (ALTA). The institute will be administered by the Computer Laboratory but includes principal investigators from the Departments of Engineering and Theoretical and Applied Linguistics. The initial period of funding is for 5 years beginning in October 2013. However, the ALTA institute is intended to be a rolling research programme with funding renewed for a further 5 years towards the end of the current period. We are currently offering four fully-funded studentships to suitably qualified applicants wishing to work in any of the above areas of research on problems such as automated assessment of textual or spoken material, error detection and correction, etc. (See the English Profile Programme, http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~ejb1/epp.html for examples of research undertaken.) For information on research carried out at CUCL http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research and for ALTA research within the NLIP group: http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/users/ejb1/alta.html Applications should be made via the University of Cambridge's Student Registry by no later than 30th June 2013. http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/gradstud/prospec/apply/index.html These studentships may be awarded to citizens of any country and are awarded on the basis of successful application to the aforementioned programme, the candidate's academic excellence, and a good fit between the research proposal and EPP. Applicants are encouraged to email Postgraduate.Admissions cl.cam.ac.uk for more detailed instructions before submitting their applications. * Limit of tenure: 3 years Quote Reference: NR28062,Closing Date: 30 June 2013|
