> The applicant shall work within a project on machine translation from North Saami to Inari Saami. The project uses a rule-based approach to translation, based upon the MT platform Apertium. North and Inari Saami are closely related languages, that due to different normative traditions differ severely both syntactically, morphologically and orthographically. The machine translation process will consist of a grammatical analysis of North Saami, a lexical and grammatical transfer component, and a component generating the target Inari Saami text.
> 
> The PhD candidate shall write a thesis related to the research project. The application shall contain a draft plan for the research plan for the thesis, related to the profile of the research project. The applicant may contact professor Trond Trosterud in order to discuss the content of such a plan.
> 
> This position requires a Master’s degree in computer science, language technology or computational linguistics (2 years). In addition the successful applicant should have earlier experience with rule-based machine translation.
> 
> The period of employment is three years, as there are no teaching or other duties attached to the position. There may arise a possibility of offering a fourth year of work relevant to the project.
> 
> Emphasis shall also be attached to personal suitability.
> 
> Remuneration for the position of PhD Candidate is in accordance with the State salary scale code 1017 (or code 1378) (or both codes depending on qualifications). A compulsory contribution of 2 % to the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund will be deducted.
