PhD scholarship -- Centre for Language Technology, Macquarie University

The PhD is attached to an Australian Research Council-funded project on natural language generation for Aboriginal languages. The overall project involves of constructing a data-to-text system for the Aboriginal language Arrernte, taking as a starting point data from AFL ("Australian Rules") football. This will include a computational linguistic analysis of Arrernte, the construction of a grammar for Arrernte in an appropriate formalism, and the building of an English-language prototype system; the PhD will focus on one aspect of this. A longer description of the project goals copied from the grant proposal is at http://web.science.mq.edu.au/~madras/research/aborig-grant.html.

The position will be at Macquarie University, Sydney. Details on applying for a PhD place at Macquarie are available at
