Description:

>From £28,290 to £33,799

The Natural Language Technology Group (NLTG) at the University of Brighton
is seeking a research fellow to work on the Prodigy (Probabilistic Deep
Generation) project, a new 3-year EPSRC-funded project led by Dr Anja Belz.
 The aim of Prodigy is to develop a comprehensive, linguistically informed,
probabilistic methodology for generating language.  Drawing also on the
expertise of the two affiliated project members, Dr Ehud Reiter (Aberdeen)
and Dr Khalid Choukri (ELRA/ELDA), Prodigy will focus on developing
technology in two key areas: (i) domain-independent linguistic
representation, in particular content representation; and (ii)
probabilistic decision-making.

We are seeking a highly motivated and committed researcher to work on all
aspects of the Prodigy Project, but in particular on developing a content
representation formalism suitable for encoding the inputs to a type of
computational natural language generation (NLG) often called data-to-text
NLG.  Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant area of computational
linguistics or a closely related field.  Proficiency in at least one
programming language commonly used in Natural Language Processing (e.g.
Python, Java, Perl, C/C++, Prolog) is essential.  Candidates must also have
good knowledge and understanding of at least one of NLG, discourse analysis
and semantic and/or discourse representation for computational processing
of language.  Applicants should demonstrate enthusiasm for independent
research and commitment to developing their research career.  The post is
fixed-term for 33 months due to funding.  The post is available from 1
April 2007 or as soon as possible thereafter.  Job sharers welcome.  For an
informal discussion please contact Dr Anja Belz (email:
A.S.Belz at brighton.ac.uk).
