PHD STUDENTSHIPS IN COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS, SPEECH TECHNOLOGY AND COGNITIVE SCIENCE

 

Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation

School of Informatics

University of Edinburgh


The Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation (ILCC) at the

University of Edinburgh invites applications for three-year PhD

studentships starting in September 2022. 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


    * Machine Translation


    * Speech technology


    * Dialogue, multimodal interaction, language and vision


    * Computational Cognitive Science , including language and speech,

      decision-making, learning and generalization


    * Social Media and Computational Social Science

    

    * Human-Computer interaction, design informatics, assistive and

      educational technology


    * Information retrieval and visualization


Approximately 10 studentships from a variety of sources are available,

covering both maintenance at the research council rate of GBP 15,605 

(2021/22 rates) per year and tuition fees. Awards increase every year, typically

with inflation.  Studentships are available for UK, EU, and non-EU nationals. 


Applicants should have a strong undergraduate degree or equivalent in

computer science, cognitive science, AI, or a related discipline.
