We are looking for a PhD candidate in the areas of Natural Language Processing (NLP), Conversational AI and Multilingual NLP.
Application Deadline: 2 October 2022

Job description:
This 4-year salaried PhD position is embedded in the project “Low-Resource Chat-based Conversational Intelligence (LESSEN), funded by the Dutch Research Council (NWO). The project’s consortium brings together a diverse set of academic researchers and industrial stakeholders aimed at developing safe and transparent chat-based conversational AI agents, based on state-of-the-art neural architectures.
In this context, the selected PhD candidate will work on multilinguality-related challenges and opportunities, with the goal of improving conversational agents under data scarcity conditions. Besides enabling knowledge sharing among high- and low-resource languages and language variants, the project aims at empowering chatbots to handle code-switching utterances, which are common in many communities. 

Qualifications:
We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic student with a Master degree in computational linguistics, artificial intelligence, computer science, information science, or related areas. 
Machine learning skills are mandatory; experience with training and/or designing neural networks for language processing tasks is strongly desired; experience in conversational systems is a plus. Furthermore, an excellent knowledge of English and good academic writing skills are essential.

Organisation:
The PhD candidate will be based at the Centre for Language and Cognition of the University of Groningen (CLCG) and will collaborate with other researchers from the Lessen project. The research will be carried out in the context of the Computational Linguistics group (https://www.rug.nl/research/clcg/research/cl/) of the CLCG research institute.

Application Deadline: 2 October 2022
Start date: 1 January 2023
