# PhD fellowship on Learning Trustworthy Representations for Natural Language Processing

## Context

MAGNET is a research team at INRIA Lille and University of Lille that carries out research in Machine Learning in Information Networks, with an important focus on Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning under Privacy and Fairness Constraints, and Decentralized Learning. The team is currently expanding its research activities in the area of trustworthy Machine Learning and NLP systems. In this context, we invite applications from highly motivated PhD holders to pursue research in close collaboration with our permanent research members.

## Job Description

The successful candidate will join the MAGNET team led by Prof. Marc Tommasi. She will contribute to the international project "Spin and Bias in Language Analyzed in News and Text (SLANT)" which is jointly funded by Agence National de la Recherche (ANR) France and the Fonds National de la Recherche (FNR) Luxembourg. Research will be carried out in collaboration with researchers at the University of Toulouse, France, and the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust at the University of Luxembourg. The overall aim of the project is to characterize bias in textual data and automatically detect such bias using tools and techniques from NLP, Machine Learning, Linguistics, Logic and Game Theory. More specifically, the PhD student will produce results along at least two main directions: (i) machine learning of unbiased word and linguistic representations and (ii) automatic rewriting of biased and de-biased texts.
