The Human Language Technology - Machine Translation (HLT-MT) unit at Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Trento (Italy) will sponsor one project-specific grant for doctoral students starting with the A.Y. 2018-2019.

Title: Deep Learning for Machine Translation

Deadline: May 31, 2018

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 36 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. The doctoral fellowship will be formally pursued at the ICT International Doctoral School of the University of Trento. The program starts in November 2018, 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.
