PhD scholarships in Computational Linguistics

Location: University of Heidelberg

The University of Heidelberg is soliciting applications for 5 PhD scholarships (€ 1310 per month, tax-free) within the research initiative "Coherence in Language Processing: Semantics Beyond the Sentence". The goal of the research initiative is to investigate computational models of semantic phenomena at the discourse level, and to approximate coherence-based interpretation through (a) analysing semantic phenomena at the discourse level and represent them; (b) using these representations to improve semantic analysis; (c) evaluating (a) and (b) in NLP applications, including SMT.

The scholarships are available from October 1st, 2011, and will run three years (dependent on positive evaluations after the first and second years). The application deadline is the 31st of July 2011. For more information, see http://semproc.cl.uni-heidelberg.de/discourse-semantics/
