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
