Two PhD positions in natural language processing

Two PhD positions are available in the Department of Informatics at Hamburg University for a 
period of 3 years. Expected starting date is October 1st, 2012, or later.

The positions are part of a DFG funded Joint International Research Training Group together with 
Tsinghua University in Bejing, China. Research aims at devising computational solutions for speech 
and language processing which are required to facilitate a natural, language-mediated interaction 
within multi-modal environments. Further information can be obtained at 
http://www.verwaltung.uni-hamburg.de/stellenangebote/Stipendium_CINACS_210812.pdf.

A degree in Informatics/Computer Science or another relevant discipline (e.g. Computational 
Linguistics, Psycholinguistics, or Cognitive Science) with a strong background in computational 
issues is required. Female applicants are particularly welcome.

Applicants should submit a CV, the names of two references, and a statement of research interests 
by e-mail to menzel@informatik.uni-hamburg.de.
