PhD Studies in Computational Linguistics and Language Engineering

ITRI, University of Brighton, UK

The ITRI at the University of Brighton is inviting applications for
places on its postgraduate studies programme for the coming academic
year including at least 2 funded studentships.

The ITRI offers a unique opportunity for bright dynamic graduates of
Linguistics, Computer Science, Computational Linguistics or a related
discipline to study for a PhD in the area of Computational Linguistics
and Language Engineering.

Students at the ITRI work closely with established researchers, often
contributing to existing projects. The ITRI offers an excellent
environment for apprentice academics who have opportunities to meet
and work with internationally renowned researchers in the field, to
present their work to a friendly but discerning audience and to attend
conferences, workshops and training courses.

We welcome applications in one or more of the core areas of expertise
of the Institute:

- document generation, including multimodal and multilingual
- generation in dialogue
- information extraction, document management and corpus linguistics
- lexical computing, including lexical representation
  and computational lexicography
- natural language interfaces

Applicants should have a good honours degree or equivalent in Computer
Science, Computational Linguistics, Linguistics or a related
discipline or be expecting to achieve this, if final year students.

The ITRI also has two funded studentships available for PhDs:

1) A studentship on the COGENT (Controlled Generation of Text)
project. The project would be suitable for people interested in
carrying out research into areas such as underspecified semantic
representations (e.g., MRS), statistical NLG and connections between
NLG and formal semantics (including OT).  The project is in
collaboration with Sussex University, Dept. of Informatics. More
information can be found at the following location.

2) A studentship on the TUNA (Towards a Unified Algorithm for the
Generation of Referring Expressions) project.  The project combines
(psycho)linguistic, computational and logical challenges and should be
of interest to people whose intellectual home is in either of these
areas. Supervision will be jointly by the Universities of Brighton and
Tilburg.  More information can be found on the TUNA homepage.

Additionally a third studentship on natural language generation in the
medical domain might become avaible (related to the CLEF project; see

All applications should ideally reach us by 31st May 2003.
Applications received after this deadline may be considered, but this
cannot be guaranteed.

Information about how to apply for a place on our PhD programme,
together with further details on postgraduate studies at the ITRI, and
on the available studentships can be found on our research students
page (http://www.itri.brighton.ac.uk/students).
