Research fellow in Natural Language Generation, University of Aberdeen, SCOTLAND


As part of the Aberdeen dot.rural Digital Economy Research Hub, we are seeking 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. 

Informal enquiries may be made to Prof Chris Mellish (c.mellish@abdn.ac.uk) Please note, however, 
that Chris Mellish cannot handle applications sent to him directly.

For more information, or to apply, please go to http://www.abdn.ac.uk/jobs/index.php, select
