The Unit for Natural Language Processing at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI: http://www.deri.ie/) of the National University of Ireland, Galway invites applications for a

summer internship on ontology-based lexicon generation

The internship will be concerned with development of methods for the semi/automatic generation of multilingual lexicons for domain ontologies, exploiting web-based and language resources. The work will be carried out in the context of an ongoing research cooperation with the Delft University of Technology, Karlsruhe University and DFKI on the definition and implementation of 'lexicalized ontologies' according to the LexInfo model: http://ontoware.org/projects/lexonto/

Internships are aimed at undergraduate students, with a duration of 3-6 months and will be enumerated with €1000 per month.

DERI is a leading research institute in semantic technologies that offers a stimulating, dynamic and multi-cultural research environment, excellent ties to research-groups worldwide, close collaboration with industrial partners and up-to-date infrastructure and resources. The DERI Unit for Natural Language Processing (http://nlp.deri.ie/) has a focus on applied research in ontology-based information extraction, semantic-level text mining and the use of linguistic and semantic methods in information retrieval. The unit develops methods for the efficient application of NLP tools in combination with domain semantics as specified in ontologies, thesauri and other knowledge organisation systems for relevant use cases. Research is carried out in close cooperation with the DERI Unit for Information Mining and Retrieval (http://uimr.deri.ie/) in the context of the DERI Semantic Information Mining stream (http://sim.deri.ie/) as well as with other DERI units.

Please send an expression of interest, preferably with links to relevant previous study and/or research experience, by May 15th to:
