EPSRC-funded PhD studentships in Natural Language Technology
School of Computing, Mathematics and Information Sciences
University of Brighton
   

Applications are invited for a three-year EPSRC-funded PhD studentship 
in Natural Language Technology at the University of Brighton, available 
from October 2007.

The Natural Language Technology Group (NLTG) in the School of Computing, 
Mathematics and Information Sciences (CMIS) has funding to support 
students interested in pursuing research in natural language technology 
to PhD level. You must have a good honours degree (2.1 or first) and 
ideally a masters (MSc/MA) or equivalent in computer science, 
computational linguistics, linguistics or a related discipline. Your 
application should include an indication of a possible topic or area in 
natural language technology research that you are interested in. You may 
also include a more detailed project proposal if you wish. Example areas 
(with possible supervisors) that we would particularly welcome include:

- Statistical approaches to language generation(Belz, Langkilde-Geary)
- Inheritance-based statistical languagemodelling (Evans)
- Lexical knowledge representation (Evans,Cahill)
- Analysing the subjective content of text(Genereux, Evans)

This is not an exhaustive list - if you have other ideas or have any 
other academic enquiries, please contact Dr Roger Evans 
(R.P.Evans at brighton.ac.uk) to discuss them. For further information 
about this studentship, the Natural Language Technology Group and
