The Centre has just released two vacancies in the AI/NLP subfield of argument mining: one for a PhD studentship and the other for a four-year senior postdoctoral appointment.
We are looking for a talented postdoctoral researcher to join a project exploring the role of argument mining in understanding and supporting public engagement with political processes. This 48-month position is at Grade 8 (£42k-£50k).
We are also looking to hire a PhD student with an interest in natural language processing, with a Masters or a good Bachelors in an appropriate subject to work on argument mining in financial discourse. The studentship is for 48 months and covers UKRI stipend (£16k tax-free) and fees at UK student rates only (candidates who do not qualify for UK student fees will be liable for the difference).
More information for the postdoc can be found at arg.tech/SSEN0407 and for the studentship at arg.tech/PHD202201 or by emailing the director, Prof. Chris Reed, firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for applications 4 March 2022.
