[beasiswa] [info] 2 Phd Positions in Computational Models of Language and Vision


TWO PHD POSITIONS IN COMPUTATIONAL MODELS OF LANGUAGE AND VISION       Two PhD positions/studentships to study computational models of  language and vision are available at the University of Trento (Italy):  One in the Language, Interaction and Computation track of the 3-year  PhD program offered by the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences  (; one in the 3-year ICT Doctoral School (      The PhD programs (start date: November 2015) are taught in English by an  international faculty. The selected PhD student will work within the CLIC laboratory, an interdisciplinary group  of researchers studying language and conceptualization using both  computational and cognitive methods (      The topic of the PhD thesis will be defined with the student selected  as PhD candidate. Possible research directions include:  Compositionality in images; Methaphors in images; Searching for images  through natural language queries; Language, vision and reasoning. The  selected student will work closely with the research team of  the ERC project COMPOSES (      * Desired Profile *      Given the interdisciplinary nature of the project, we seek a brilliant  student with at least some of the following background:      - Machine learning  - Computer Vision  - Natural Language Processing  - Good programming skills  - Ability to work with big data  - Mathematical and statistical skills.      If you think that your background is relevant to the research program  outlined on the project website ( and you  have good programming and quantitative skills, please do get in touch  even if you do not fully fit the profile above.      All prospective students are expected to have an interest in working  in an interdisciplinary environment.          * The Research Environment *      The CLIC lab ( is a unit of the University of  Trento's Center for Mind/Brain Sciences (CIMeC,, an English-speaking, interdisciplinary center  for research on brain and cognition whose staff includes  neuroscientists, psychologists, (computational) linguists, computer  scientists and physicists.      CLIC consists of researchers from the Departments of Computer Science  (DISI) and Psychology and Cognitive Science (DiPSCo) carrying out  research on a range of topics including concept acquisition,  corpus-based computational semantics, combining NLP and computer  vision, combining brain and corpus data to study cognition, formal  semantics and theoretical linguistics.      CLIC is part of the larger network of research labs focusing on  Natural Language Processing and related domains in the Trento region,  that is quickly becoming one of the areas with the highest  concentration of researchers in NLP and related fields anywhere in  Europe.      The CLIC laboratories are located in beautiful Rovereto, a  lively town in the middle of the Alps, famous for its contemporary art  museum, the quality of its wine, and the range of outdoors sport and  relax opportunities it offers:          * Application Information *      The official call of the Doctoral School in Cognitive and Brain  Sciences will be announced shortly, and application details will be  available on the page:      The official call of the ICT Doctoral School will be announced shortely, and application details will be available on the page:      We strongly encourage a preliminary expression of interest in the  project.
