Job Summary
Digital Economy is an RCUK cross-council programme, aimed at realising the transformational impact 
of ICT for all aspects of business, society and economy. The dot.rural Digital Economy Hub at the 
University of Aberdeen is one of three large multi-disciplinary research hubs funded through this 
programme, and commenced its activities in October 2009. The Hub award to Aberdeen is worth 11.8M 
and will fund five years of activity. The Hub brings together a large team of researchers (70+) 
working in and across the disciplines of computer science, communications engineering, transport, 
health, social sciences and environmental sciences. For further details, see: www.dotrural.ac.uk 
To support our ambitious research programme we are looking to appoint a postdoctoral research 
fellow to work in the area of intelligent language/ multimodal interfaces. The Research Fellow will
help develop and be responsible for natural language generation (NLG) based and other creative 
forms of on-line communication in a research project on effective communication of river water 
levels to the public, as well as contributing to interfaces of similar kinds needed for other 
projects related to natural resource conservation. The successful candidate will have a good 
knowledge of natural language processing techniques or multimodal interfaces (at the PhD level). 
They will have some knowledge of NLG and a desire to learn more. 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. The ability to use GIS would be an advantage. As this post is externally funded 
it is available for a period of 2.5 years.
