The National Centre for Language Technology (NCLT) invites
applications from PhD research students or MSc research students to

Language Processing project funded by the Faculty of Engineering &

The internship project aims to produce an efficient pre-processing
method for Arabic data in order to improve existing
statistical/machine-learning-based POS-taggers, morphological
analysers and parsing systems. This pre-processing will take the form
of date and numerical expression normalisation and
spelling/grammatical error correction with a view to parsing of
unrestricted Arabic text.

This project involves a considerable amount of research and technology
infrastructure building. Experience in Natural Language Processing is
required. Applicants should have a good grounding in Statistical
Parsing, Machine Learning-based NLP, and a good knowledge of Arabic
grammar would be ideal.

The internship will be for a max. of 6 months (October 2010 – March
2011) and we will pay a stipend of €1300 per month to cover living
expenses (This amount is not liable to tax).
