We're recruiting top PhD students working at the intersection of Machine Learning and Computational Linguistics to join our group at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia.

Example research topics include:

* syntactic and semantic parsing of text or speech, especially models

which can be integrated with speech recognition or information


* generalisations of topic models to novel kinds of data (e.g.,

financial data), or which are capable of learning sequential or

hierarchical structure

* computational models of language acquisition, especially those that

rely on non-parametric Bayesian methods

* machine learning and computational neurolinguistics, which applies

computational linguistics and machine learning to predict brain

responses during language comprehension

Successful candidates will need the following skills:

* strong mathematical background in multivariate calculus and linear


* native or near-native proficiency in English

* good programming skills

* one or more publications on a related topic

Candidates should apply for an International Post-graduate Research Scholarship <http://www.hdr.mq.edu.au/information_about/scholarships/hdr_scholarship_international_candidates_only#> from Macquarie University <http://www.mq.edu.au/>; applications close on the 30th August 2013.
