The Language Technology Group (Språkbanken <http://spraakbanken.gu.se/eng/>) in the Department of Swedish at the University of Gothenburg invites applications for one (or more) fully funded four-year PhD position(s) in Natural language processing.
Språkbanken has conducted research in NLP and neighboring fields for over 40 years. At present, our work focuses on language technology methodologies for the Swedish language, and the development of linguistic resources and tools for all historical stages of Swedish, in a number of internally and externally funded research projects. A recent but increasingly important area of interest is the application of language technology as a research tool for the humanities and social sciences. In particular, Språkbanken is the national coordinator for the Swedish node of the European CLARIN ERIC.
The deadline for applications is 30th September 2015. The starting date for the position(s) is 1st February, 2016 (or as soon as possible after this date as per agreement).
