  • (New) PhD position in Computational Social Choice

    Deadline: Monday 28 October 2019

    Are you looking for a PhD position where you can use your mathematical skills to improve how we make decisions, arrive at compromises, and aggregate information in a group? Are you excited about doing this kind of research in an interdisciplinary environment, in a team with smart and friendly colleagues? And are you interested in an academic career in Artificial Intelligence?

    Then you may want to join us. We are looking for a PhD candidate in the field of computational social choice to join us in the COMSOC Group at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) in Amsterdam.

  • Postdoctoral researcher in Abductive Inference for Natural Language Interpretatio

    Deadline: Saturday 12 October 2019

    Are you a high potential young researcher with a PhD degree in Computer Science, Computational Linguistics, Mathematics, Artificial Intelligence, or a related discipline, and would you be interested to join the Logic and Language programme at our institute to investigate Natural Language Interpretation as Abductive Inference? If so, we invite you to apply for this position.

    This postdoc position is part of the NWO Open Competition project 'A Sentence Uttered Makes a World Appear---Natural Language Interpretation as Abductive Model Generation'. The successful applicant will join the group of Reinhard Muskens. The aim of the project is to explore how semantic values are assigned to natural language expressions in a compositional way and how the resulting values, represented as logical expressions, are subsequently enriched by means of abductive reasoning. The latter is studied in a tableaux setting.

    While this is primarily a research position, you will have the opportunity to contribute to teaching activities.
