PhD position in deep learning for NLP at Uni Edinburgh / Uni Amsterdam

Country : Netherlands, The

Website : http://www.uva.nl/en/content/vacancies/2...ing.html?n

Description

A PhD position is available within an industrially supported project. The project seeks to develop deep learning methods for predictive analysis of complex network data (e.g., social networks, trading networks etc), focusing on statistical modelling of information exchange in transaction networks. This is an on-going project with 2 PIs: Ivan Titov and Max Welling.
The student will be affiliated with the University of Amsterdam, but will be mostly located at the University of Edinburgh, hosted by the Institute of Language, Cognition and Computation (ILCC) and Edinburgh NLP group. ILCC is the largest lab focusing on NLP in Europe and one of the largest in the world, with over 10 faculty doing research in this area. This PhD vacancy will focus primarily on deep learning for natural language processing (supervised by Ivan Titov)
We are exploiting data provided by an industrial partner. As information in these networks mostly comes in a textual form, we are developing methods for inducing predictive semantics representations of texts, relying both on the text itself but also on the flow of information in the network.
Deadline is July 31. Please see further information (incl. the application procedure):
