2 PhD positions in Natural Language Processing
DERI – National University of Ireland, Galway
 
The newly established Unit for Natural Language Processing at the
Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI: http://www.deri.ie/) of the
National University of Ireland, Galway invites applications for two PhD
positions.
 
DERI is a leading research institute in semantic technologies that
offers a stimulating, dynamic and multi-cultural research environment,
excellent ties to research-groups worldwide, close collaboration with
industrial partners and up-to-date infrastructure and resources.
 
The DERI Unit for Natural Language Processing (http://nlp.deri.ie/) has
a focus on applied research in ontology-based information extraction,
semantic-level text mining and the use of linguistic and semantic
methods in information retrieval. The unit develops methods for the
efficient application of NLP tools in combination with domain semantics
as specified in ontologies, thesauri and other knowledge organisation
systems for relevant use cases. Research is carried out in close
cooperation with the DERI Unit for Information Mining and Retrieval in
the context of the DERI Semantic Information Mining stream (SIM:
http://sim.deri.ie/) as well as with other DERI units.
 
Candidates should have an excellent university degree in a relevant
field of study, e.g. computer science, computational linguistics,
information science, etc. with an emphasis on natural language
processing. Selected candidates are expected to have the willingness to
combine formal scientific work with application-oriented research and
development in projects funded by national and international (EU)
funding agencies
 
Please send your application (CV, two letters of reference) in PDF
