Research position (9m) in Computational Linguistics, Aberdeen, SCOTLAND

http://www.abdn.ac.uk/jobs/index.php
Contact: c.mellish@abdn.ac.uk

To support our ambitious research programme we are looking to appoint a postdoctoral research 
fellow to do research on natural language generation in the MIME project. MIME 
(see http://www.dotrural.ac.uk/mime/ ) investigates ways to underpin reconfigured rural emergency 
response services, by examining how technology could support responders to incidents such as road 
accidents. It is exploring the use of networked monitors to support decision making and information
management in the management of casualties and the automatic generation of handover reports from 
responders when more expert help arrives.

The successful candidate will have a good knowledge of natural language processing techniques in 
general (at the postgraduate level) and preferably some practical experience with NLG. The 
candidate will have a PhD or be about to complete a PhD in Computer Science/ Artificial 
Intelligence or a relevant discipline. Enthusiasm for digital technology and innovation relevant 
to society and the economy is essential as is the ability to work in a cross-disciplinary team 
including colleagues in computer science and engineering.

This post is funded by the EPSRC and it is anticipated that the project activities will be 
completed within 9 months of the agreed start date. This appointment will be made subject to the 
usual terms and conditions of employment of the University.

not formal applications, contact Chris Mellish at c.mellish@abdn.ac.uk
