The University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory invites applications for 

ONE PhD studentship in Natural Language Processing (NLP)

Closing date: 16th May, 2008

The PhD studentship is part of a large interdisciplinary research project 
'Computational Natural Language Processing and the Neuro-Cognition of 
Language' involving four research units in Cambridge: the Computer 
Laboratory, the Department of Experimental Psychology, the Research Centre 
for English and Applied Linguistics (RCEAL) and the MRC Cognition and Brain 
Sciences Unit (CBU). The project integrates research in NLP, experimental 
psycholinguistics and cognitive neuroscience with the aim of providing the 
infrastructure for more realistic models of language structure for input 
into theoretically-driven empirical studies of language in the mind and 
brain. The long term goal is improved scientific understanding of human 
language processing which can benefit several disciplines.

The PhD student will be based at the Computer Laboratory's Natural Language 
and Information Processing (NLIP) group 
(http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/nl/) and will develop techniques for the 
automatic acquisition of lexical and conceptual information from corpus 
data. Suitable candidates will have previous experience in NLP and interest 
in applying NLP to research in cognitive neuroscience.

The closing date is May 16, 2008.
