PhD Studentship in Machine Learning at University of Bristol

Applications are invited for a 3-year PhD research studentship in the
Machine Learning and Biological Computation Group at the University of
Bristol. The studentship forms part of an EPSRC-funded project aimed at
learning the rules for morphological analysis of synthetic (morphologically
complex) languages, including Russian, Turkish and isiZulu. The PhD student
will develop a Machine Learning approach in order to efficiently induce
morphological rules (or grammars) both for regular and context-free
languages. More information about the project is available at

This position is available from April 2007. The funding will cover EU
tuition fees and an annual stipend, currently GBP 12,300. (The funding
will not cover non-EU tuition fees, so candidates from outside the EU must
find alternative means to fund the difference between EU and non-EU tuition
fees.) The successful candidate has a strong background in artificial
intelligence and machine learning and excellent analytical skills. Previous
experience with computational linguistics is preferred but not essential.
Due to the international context of the project, excellent communication
skills in English are required, as well as the ability to work in a team.

Applicants should send a full CV, with accompanying letter and name and
email address of two referees, to Professor Peter Flach
(Peter.Flach at bristol.ac.uk) or Dr. Ksenia Shalonova (ksenia at cs.bris.ac.uk).
Further details regarding the studentship are available on request. The
closing date for applications is Friday 9th March 2007.
