The Human Language Technology - Machine Translation (HLT-MT) unit at Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Trento (Italy) will sponsor two project-specific grants for doctoral students starting with the A.Y. 2017-2018.
Title: Deep Learning for Machine Translation
Deadline: May 31, 2017
The candidate will team up a world-class research effort developing novel MT technology capable to integrate information obtained unobtrusively from real professional translation workflows. Relevant topics include: machine translation, machine learning, deep learning, sequence-to-sequence models, error analysis, domain and user adaptation.
No specific knowledge of languages is required, while strong programming skills are a must. Students will have access to a state of the art cluster with 1520 CPUs and 24 last generation GPUs, and to large cloud computing facilities with both CPUs and GPUs. Machine translation is a very active field, both in academia and industry, and offers great opportunities for internships and job placements. Doctoral fellowships will be formally pursued at the ICT International Doctoral School of the University of Trento. The program starts in November 2017, has a length of three years and includes attendance of courses during the first two years, while the third is fully dedicated to research work. An internship period is also foreseen.

Potential candidates are invited to contact us in advance for preliminary interviews. There is also the possibility to begin with an internship in our group during the summer before the official PhD program starts. -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
