SICSA Readership/Lectureship
in Large Scale and Robust Natural Language Processing
School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh

The School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh invites
applications from candidates of international standing in Large Scale
and Robust Natural Language Processing.

Personal ubiquitous interfaces require research enabling multiple,
rich communication channels between people and vast bodies of
information. We seek candidates of international standing in two areas
within large scale, robust natural language processing, relevant to
developing new forms of multimodal interaction:

1. The automatic, unsupervised understanding of language in open
domains for applications such as machine reading and listening, and
human language technologies at the web scale.

2. The development of models and algorithms for terascale processing.

The appointee will extend the current strengths of the School in
data-driven approaches to written and spoken language processing and
statistical machine learning.

Leading researchers across Scotland, including the School of
Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, the Computer Science
Departments of the Universities of Glasgow and St Andrews, and others,
have recently established the Scottish Informatics and Computer
Science Alliance (SICSA). The new post is part of the School of
Informatics' planned expansion within the Alliance. Three posts in
other areas of Informatics in Edinburgh are also being advertised.

Lecturer Appointments will be within Grade 8: (£33,779 - £40,335).
Reader Appointments will be within Grade 9: (£42,791 - £48,161).

Deadline: 20th August
