One PhD studentship in Translation Technology
Deadline: 30th Nov 2017
The Research Group in Computational Linguistics at University of Wolverhampton invites applications for a 3-year PhD studentships in the area of translation technology. This PhD studentship is part of a university investment which also includes the appointment of a senior lecturer, a research fellow and another PhD student with the aim to strengthen the existing research undertaken by members of the group in this area. This bursary consists of a stipend towards living expenses
(£14,500 per year) and remission of fees.
We invite applications in the area of translation technology defined in the broadest sense possible and ranging from advanced methods in machine translation to other ways of involving technology in the translation process. The proposals should focus on Natural Language Processing techniques for translation memory systems and translation tools in general. Given the current research interests of the group and its focus on computational approaches, we would be interested in topics including but not limited to:
Other topics will be also considered as long as they align with the interests of the group. The appointed student is expected to work on a project that has a significant computational component. For this reason we expect that the successful candidate will have good background in computer science and programming.
The application deadline is 30 November 2017 and the interviews will take place in the first half of December by Skype. The starting date of the PhD position is 1st Jan 2018 or any time as soon as possible after that.
