Two research assistant positions, one PhD student position on "Computational Models of Argument", Dundee (Scotland)

Applications are invited for two research assistants and one PhD student to work on an EPSRC-funded project in computational models of argument. The Dialectical Argumentation Machines project aims to deploy argumentation technologies in real world settings and involves working with providers of some of the world's largest and most popular websites. The posts will be held in the Argumentation Research Group in the School of Computing at the University of Dundee.

The theoretical side of the project involves working to tie together abstract, mathematical models of argument, with concrete, linguistic representations. The foundation that results will then put the applied side of the project on a sound footing that is both flexible and extensible.

The practical side of the project involves building a platform to enable an ambitious vision of the "World Wide Argument Web", bringing together semantically rich representations of data with large-scale infrastructure into a coherent and open platform for online debate. Applications and tools that make use of this platform must then be easy to use and immediately appealing.

Closing Date: 31 July 2009. For more information, see http://www.jobs.dundee.ac.uk/vacancies/20090731_00003-y.html and http://www.jobs.dundee.ac.uk/vacancies/20090731_00004-y.html.
