*Department of Computer Science – Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning group*
*3-year PhD studentships in Statistical Natural Language Processing*
*Starting September 2018*
*Application closing date: 1**st** of March 2018*
We are seeking applications from talented and strongly motivated Computer Scientists interested in studying for a funded Ph.D. on the intersection of Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning under the supervision of Dr Andreas Vlachos (http://andreasvlachos.github.io/).
The student can focus on a variety of topics, including structured prediction, natural language understanding and generation, and automated fact checking. He/she will interact with members of the Natural Language Processing (https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/dcs/research/groups/nlp) and the Machine Learning ( https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/dcs/research/groups/machine-learning) groups at the University of Sheffield, both among the best-established research groups in the UK.
The Department of Computer Science at the University of Sheffield, within the Faculty of Engineering, was established in 1982 and has since attained an international reputation for its research and teaching. Currently there are over 100 members of staff in Computer Science, including 35 Academics. The Department has consistently rated highly in UK national research assessment exercises.
All three studentship will include full payment of fees at the UK/EU level along with a stipend at the RCUK rate of £14,553 per annum.
Candidates must have an excellent first degree in Computer Science, or a closely related subject, and have excellent programming and analytical skills. Previous exposure to natural language processing and/or machine learning would be advantageous, as is any previous experience of carrying out research.
Potential candidates are welcome to discuss their application informally with Dr Andreas Vlachos (*a.vlachos at sheffield.ac.uk <a.vlachos at sheffield.ac.uk>*).
