PhD studentship in argumentation for dispute mediation, Dundee, UK


Contact: c.a.reed@dundee.ac.uk

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in argumentation for
dispute mediation, funded by the Leverhulme Trust.

The studentship forms part of a project which aims to develop a
theoretical foundation to underpin practical tools for
argument-supported dispute mediation. The successful applicant will have
the freedom to explore an area that is relevant to both the project and
their own research interests including, but not limited to:
philosophical and/or computational models of dialogue and argument;
mediation theory and practice; computational linguistics. The
studentship will be held in the Argumentation Research Group in the
School of Computing at the University of Dundee.

At the most recent RAE, the School's research was rated fourth in
Scotland, with two thirds of its research rated world leading or
internationally excellent (4* or 3*). Dundee has been ranked amongst the
top places for scientists to work in the world (The Scientist), and has
one of the lowest costs of living in the UK. 

Stipendiary payments are at UK research council levels (13,590 tax-free
for academic year 2012/13). Applicants should typically have, or be
expecting, a first or upper second class degree in an appropriate
subject. Interest in, or exposure to, dispute mediation or philosophical
or computational argumentation would be a distinct advantage. 

Further details are available from www.arg.dundee.ac.uk. Applicants
should send a CV with a covering letter to Professor Chris Reed, School
of Computing, University of Dundee, Dundee DD1 4HN, or by email to
c.a.reed@dundee.ac.uk, by the closing date 30 June 2013.
