Postdoctoral positions in Computer Science, Aberdeen, SCOTLAND

http://www.abdn.ac.uk/jobs/index.php

A number of postdoctoral positions are becoming available at the Computing Science department of 
the University of Aberdeen (Scotland). The jobs are advertised at http://www.jobs.ac.uk/ (look 
under Computer Science) and http://www.abdn.ac.uk/jobs/index.php (external applicants). These 
vacancies are associated with two projects that were recently funded by the EPSRC. They could be 
filled by a computationally oriented logician interested in natural language. If you wish to apply, 
you should do so via http://www.abdn.ac.uk/jobs/index.php (external applicants)

-- One project is named SASSY (Scrutable Autonomous Systems). The project will investigate 
argumentation-based techniques for distributed planning, coupled with Natural Language Generation 
techniques for presenting and explaining computer-generated plans. The project is still looking 
for candidates to fill two of the postdoctoral positions on this project, one of which will work on
the mapping from logical formulas and proofs to English text. For information, send email to Kees 
van Deemter at k.vdeemter@abdn.ac.uk. The reference number of the job
is NCS017R, closing date 29 June. There is a possibility that this deadline may be extended slightly.

-- The other project is named WhatIf. The project links formal ontologies in Description Logic 
with dialogue, aiming to give users who are not logicians an understanding of the effects that 
possible changes to the ontologies (e.g., the addition of a concept or an axiom) would have (e.g.,
a contradiction may arise). We are interested in recruiting someone with interests in dialogue 
and/or NLG. If you'd like to talk about the project, send email to Chris Mellish at 
c.mellish@abdn.ac.uk or Jeff Pan at jeff.z.pan@abdn.ac.uk
 or Kees van Deemter at k.vdeemter@abdn.ac.uk
. 

The reference number of the job is NCS14R, 
closing date 28 Jun
