The department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology announces one PhD position within the research project "MUSTE: Multimodal semantic text editing", funded by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet).

The research of the advertised PhD position will be about developing new methods for entering and editing text in contexts where the keyboard is not the most natural choice. Over the last 10-20 years several different modes of human computer interaction have emerged and are used by millions of people all around the world. The traditional way of using a physical keyboard for writing and editing text has been challenged by new interfaces such as speech recognition, touch screens, eye tracking and even brain computer interfaces. The basic problem that we want to solve in this project is how to reduce the cognitive load when authoring and editing text on devices with non-traditional input modalities.

Deadline for application is 1 March 2015. For more information about the position, including how to apply:

The University of Gothenburg has been awarded 109 million SEK over 10 years from the Swedish Research Council to recruit Shalom Lappin to create a new Centre for Linguistic Theory and Studies of Probability (CLASP).

Lappin will join the University of Gothenburg to lead CLASP, which brings together linguists and computational linguists as well as philosophers, logicians and computer scientists. He will also develop collaboration with other related research centres. Lappin’s research spans theoretical linguistics, theoretical philosophy, computational linguistics and semantics, and he has a well-documented ability to attract scholars from other research institutions and build creative research environments. He has in recent years developed ground-breaking research on central issues in human language, language learning and cognition and this work will be of central importance for CLASP.

The proposal for the new centre cites CLT as an important part of the research environment at GU which plays a large role in the motivation for placing CLASP here.

Research engineer/systems developer at Språkbanken/CLT, Department of Swedish

Språkbanken (the Swedish Language Bank) is a research and development unit at the University of Gothenburg. Since the 1970s Språkbanken has been developing digital linguistic resources for Swedish and making them available for research. Språkbanken is part of the Centre for Language Technology – a collaboration among language technology research groups in four departments in the two universities in Gothenburg – through its involvement in CLT’s Text Technology Laboratory, where the main research foci are the development and maintenance of linguistic resources and language technology tools, and the use of language technology as a research tool in the humanities and medicine.

The work description of the position includes development of our basic language technology infrastructure, especially high-quality linguistic annotation of large text volumes, and programming and systems development support in language technology research projects. Our research and development environment is heterogeneous, consisting mainly of open source and free software.

For more information, see the official announcement.

Application deadline is January 31st.
