PhD position in Experimental Computational Linguistics

About the position

We announce a four-year PhD position in experimental computational linguistics at the Department of Language and Literature.

The PhD position is part of the project Computational modeling of filler-gap acquisition in Norwegian which is an interdisciplinary project within the Enabling Technologies strategic area at NTNU. The successful applicant will be part of a project group headed by Associate Professor Dave Kush (Department of Language and Literature), Professor Terje Lohndal (Department of Language and Literature), and Professor Ole Jakob Mengshoel (Department of Computer Science).

The project will be carried out in Kush’s ØyeLab and in cooperation with the cross-institutional research group AcqVA (Acquisition, Variation and Attrition) between NTNU and UiT The Arctic University of Norway. The Trondheim unit of the group consists of 18 researchers, including 3 professors, 4 associate professors, 1 postdoc, 8 PhD candidates, and 2 20% adjunct professors.

Job description

The project seeks to use computational modeling to better understand how learners might acquire constraints on filler-gap dependencies from natural language input. To this end, the project will evaluate whether computational learning models of various types (e.g., Recurrent Neural Networks; Variational Learners; Bayesian models) can (i) represent a diverse array of long-distance filler-gap dependencies and (ii) learn the proper constraints on such dependencies when trained on different Norwegian corpora. The results of these investigations will be compared to previous results from English. The goal is to ultimately identify necessary components of a learning strategy that is capable of learning attested patterns cross-linguistically.

Applicants are requested to contact the project leader to obtain a more detailed project description before applying.

Qualification requirements

Applicants must have:

  • A master’s degree in a relevant field, for example formal or experimental linguistics, or computer science with a specialization in linguistics

One or more PhD Stipend(s) in Human-Robot Collaboration (20-19028)

At the Technical Faculty of IT and Design, Department of Planning, one or more PhD stipend(s) are available within the general study programme Planning and Development. The stipend(s) are open for appointment from 1 June 2019 or soon hereafter.The Department of Planning conducts research and teaching on development and planning in a broad sense, including social science aspects as well as more technical aspects of development, and with a focus on environmental, international as well as administrative dimensions.

Job description

The PhD position(s) are part of the interdisciplinary research collaboration at the Aalborg University Human-Robot Interaction Lab (HRI Lab). In this lab we research HRI from multiple angles and cooperate on development of theories, methods and design concepts to advance future Human-Robot Interaction.

The PhD position(s) are focused on researching symmetries and asymmetries in human robot teams with the objective to improve and advance design and use of robots in work settings. Workplace designs where human workers collaborate with robots are increasing. Workers and robots collaborate on tasks, processes and materials, they share workspace and workers delegate tasks to robots among others. The purpose of human-robot collaboration is that workers and robots will complement each other and improve quality in work processes and products For example, workers can delegate tasks that are repetative or ergonomic challenging to robots and focus on decision making and managing processes or workers can be supported by robots in performing tasks that require technical precision. However, work is unpredictable and collaboration on what might seem as simple tasks easily become difficult in human-human collaboration and likewise in human-robot collaboration. This PhD study contributes a qualitative understanding of human-robot collaboration by investigating symmetries and assymetries in human robot teams at work. The ambition of this research is to develop optimal patterns for human-robot collaboration at work and contribute to develop robots as trusted co-workers. The research will be conducted in collaboration with enterprises in Denmark.

The successful candidate(s) have an education and experience with investigating human-technology interactions for example as MSc in Techno-Antropology or similar education. Experience with robotics and/or workplace studies is an advantage but not a requirement. Expertise in doing empirical studies and using qualitative methods is a requirement. The collaboration with the project partners, data collection and data analysis will be in Danish. Hence, the candidate(s) must be able to understand and communicate Danish/Scandinavian. A high proficiency in oral and written English is required. Good dissemination skills are important.

The PhD(s) will be part of the research group for Techno-Anthropology and Participation (TAPAR) at the Department of Planning, Aalborg University. TAPAR is an interdisciplinary, international and gender-balanced research group. We research existing and emerging technologies from a human-centered, participatory and holistic perspective. Our mission is to contribute to change for the better in technological innovation, design and use. TAPAR researchers work with socio-technical theory and are skilled in participatory design, action research and mixed methods.

The application can be submitted in English or Danish.

The project proposal must be max 5 pages (not including references). The project proposal must include

1) a research motivation

2) a short presentation of expected theories to be used in investigating human-robot collaboration

3) a short presentation of methods to be used in conducting the empirical study

4) a work plan describing the main phases of the study

You may obtain further information from Professor, Anne Marie Kanstrup, email: kanstrup@plan.aau.dk concerning the scientific aspects of the stipend.

PhD stipends are allocated to individuals who hold a Masters degree. PhD stipends are normally for a period of 3 years. It is a prerequisite for allocation of the stipend that the candidate will be enrolled as a PhD student at the Doctoral School of the Technical Faculty of IT and Design, in accordance with the regulations of Ministerial Order No. 1039 of August 27, 2013 on the PhD Programme at the Universities and Certain Higher Artistic Educational Institutions. According to the Ministerial Order, the progress of the PhD student shall be assessed every six months.

Two PhD positions in Environmental history/Environmental humanities, focusing on energy

8_Chalmersplatsen-1.jpg


The Department of Technology Management and Economics (TME) broadly researches the interaction between technology development, industrial systems, society, people and the environment. The research can be divided into three main research areas, Innovation & Entrepreneurship, Supply Chain & Operations Management and Sustainability & Society Studies. The department is organized in six divisions for research and teaching and one support function and it hosts four research centres and the Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship. Our research is linked to several of Chalmers’ Areas of Advance.


Information about the division and the research
The Department of Technology Management and Economics at Chalmers University of Technology is looking for two PhD students in Environmental history/Energy humanities. The positions are placed at the Division of Science, Technology and Society (STS). The division researches and teaches History of Technology, History of Science, Environmental Humanities, Science and Technology Studies, Policy Studies, Industrial Dynamics and Ethics.

We offer two positions in two different projects funded by the Swedish Energy Agency:
1) Swedish petroculture: lessons for transitioning to a sustainable energy system (led by Anna Åberg): The research focus of this PhD-project is the history of Swedish petroculture. In order to transition from one energy system to a profoundly different one, it is at least as important to understand the social and cultural aspects of the transition process as it is to develop necessary technologies. This project will identify key aspects of how and why a dependence on oil was established in Sweden – including central actors, narrative frameworks, and decisive policies – as well as how and where it persists today, despite attempts to transition to more sustainable energy sources.

2) Men and energy. Studying different masculinities and technology within the energy sector (led by Martin Hultman): Historically, energy has up until this day been a very unequal sector dominated by men. The research in this PhD will extend and expand the foundational work done by ecofeminists developing new theory about masculinities in connection to energy; it will innovate further a theoretical framework with three concepts (or figurations) of ‘industrial/breadwinner masculinities’, ‘ecomodern masculinities’ and ’ecological masculinities’ in relation to historical and/or contemporary cases studies.

Major responsibilities
As a PhD candidate, your major responsibility is to pursue doctoral studies in relation to a specific research aim. At large, PhD studies include a number of doctoral courses, literature reviews, designing research studies, collecting and analysing empirical data, and communicating the results of your research verbally and in writing, both in Swedish and in English. The exact focus of the work will be decided in interaction with the main supervisor.

As a PhD candidate you take an active role in the specific research project in preparing for and collecting empirical data, conducting analysis and presenting results. Results are expected to continuously be presented at seminars and international conferences.

The position may also include teaching in Chalmers undergraduate level courses, supervising student projects or performing other duties corresponding to 20 per cent of working hours.

Position summary
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of five years.

Qualifications
To qualify as a PhD candidate you must have a Master’s degree with a minimum of 90 Swedish credits in History of Technology, History of Science, History of Ideas, Economic History, History, Science and Technology Studies, Cultural Studies or other relevant fields, or a MSc level degree in Engineering. Additional qualifications for applicants with a MSc level Engineering degree are: Master’s thesis on a historical subject, particularly History of Science or History of Technology, as well as courses in History of Science, History of Technology or corresponding.

The Master’s degree has to be obtained at the start of the PhD-employment (planned for September 1, 2019).

Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.

Postdoc at The Danish National Research Foundation Centre for Privacy Studies

Postdoc at The Danish National Research Foundation Centre for Privacy Studies (2 years with the possi­bility of a one-year extension)    

Centre for Privacy Studies (PRIVACY) advertises three fully funded Postdoc positions within the fields of Church History, Architectural History, Legal History and History. PRIVACY is established with a grant of 50 mio DKK (ca. 6.7 mio Euro) from the Danish National Research Foundation and based at the University of Copenhagen.    PRIVACY was launched in the autumn of 2017 under the direction of Professor Mette Birkedal Bruun and runs for six years with the possibility of a four-year extension. It is hosted by the Department of Church His­tory at the Faculty of Theology, University of Copenhagen, in association with the Faculty of Law, Uni­versity of Copenhagen and the School of Architecture, Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Ar­chitecture, Design and Conservations (KADK), Copenhagen.    The PRIVACY research team currently consists of six postdocs and three PhD-students as well as affiliated and visiting scholars.   

Centre for Privacy Studies 
PRIVACY is dedicated to interdisciplinary and collaborative research into notions of privacy in Early Mod­ern Europe. It focuses on eleven cases from Denmark, England, France, Germany and the Netherlands in the period 1500–1800. The collaborative programme is driven by an interdisciplinary vision of an inte­grated approach in which a team of schol­ars collaborate, challenge and inspire each other in a joint pursuit of the legislative, religious, social, cultural and architectural aspects of a common set of cases. Shared re­sponsibil­ity across aca­demic hierarchies is a token of PRIVACY’s vision for in­teractive research education.   

The aim of PRIVACY is to develop 1) systematized historical knowledge of dynamics that shape, induce or curb privacy in society; 2) an interdisciplinary method equipped to grasp such dy­namics; and 3) a strong and vibrant international research environment dedicated to high-profile historical research and equipped to incite a much broader investigation of privacy.    PRIVACY’s scholarly potency stems from its site-based interdisci­plinary analysis. Across eleven cases the research team will trawl Early Modern material: let­ters, laws, political manuals, newspa­pers, sermons, vis­ual representations, architectural drawings, buildings, diaries, contracts, commu­nity records etc. for no­tions of privacy, analysing the deployment of words with the root ‘priv-ʼ: in privato, privy, Privat-(per­son/andacht etc.), privauté etc. as well as bounda­ries drawn in relation to, e.g., confidentiality, security, family, body, self. The research programme is based on a joint interdisciplinary focus on, e.g., legislative thresholds between home and com­munity; de­crees regarding individ­uals’ bodies, e.g., during epidemics, or the idea of the household’s (oeco­no­mia) impact on civic well-being (politia); ecclesiastical and politi­cal power over ‘hereti­cal’ mind­sets; and architectural demarcation of the household in the community and the individuals’ place in a household.   Scholars funded by PRIVACY are required to join two or more case-teams. The postdocs recruited in this round will be required to work on the German cases, just as we invite applications focusing on the cases of La Rochelle, Chatsworth, Glasgow and Arc-et-Senans.  For further description of the project and the eleven cases, please visit the project homepage:   http://teol.ku.dk/privacy/research/ 

Research areas 
PRIVACY launches a systematic, scholarly fusion of the areas of architecture, theology, law and history. The research team brings to­gether four sets of field-inherent skills and ap­proaches to privacy:    
Architecture: Urban plans, buildings and rooms frame privacy, creating secrecy and shelter; chapels and cabinets stage prayer, study and intimacy, and are amplified by interiors and furnishing; alcove beds and privies (toilets) wall off bodily needs; rural retreat offset urban life.   Qualifications required: Knowledge of design processes, architectural history and theories, patronage, pat­terns of use, materiality and tectonics.  

NB.: The position in Architecture is an assistant professorship. This requires teaching experiences on bachelors and masters level from a school of architecture.   Please find the full assistant professorship description using this link

Re­ligious cul­ture: Early Modern believers favour privacy­ (material and/or mental retreat) as a site for pious fo­cus, and privacy is often presented as place particularly fit for prayer and insight. But privacy also evades control and prompts suspicion of heresy or sin, leading to efforts to regulate the private sphere by means of church discipline.   Qualifications required: Knowledge of religious doctrines, prac­tices and institutions across confessions, ability to work with different genres, media and forms of archival material.    

Law: Early Modern law defines conditions for property, sexual conduct, mar­riage, inheritance and rulers’ claims to their subjects’ work, property and lives (conscrip­tion, mo­nopoly of vio­lence within penal law).   Qualifications required: Knowledge of legal procedure, laws, charters, their usage and changes.    

History: Historians may focus on Early Modern notions of privacy within a scholarly span ranging from political theory to social practice. In Early Modern society, privacy is seen both as a threat and as a positive value. A new ideology of marriage and family favours intimacy and domesticity, but also enforces state and community control. In politics, privacy often equals secrecy: it is a latent threat to civic stability and vital for the ruler. In society more generally, a broad array of social and societal conditions delineate access to and notions of privacy.   Qualifications required: Knowledge of political/legal structures, education, and social and cultural dynam­ics.   

Qualifications
  Applicants must have a PhD degree within the fields of Architecture, Church History, History, Legal History or related disciplines. Relevant research experiences related to interdisciplinary schol­arship and academic collaboration will be considered a qualification. The research language is English. The research team work on sources in French, German, Danish, Dutch, Latin, Portuguese and Classical Greek. Specialist knowledge of Early Modern culture is important; just as vital is, however, readiness to engage in interdisciplinary collaboration on a broad array of different sources and the ability to work in a team to­wards an inte­grated methodology for interdisciplinary privacy studies.    

The Postdocs employed are expected to teach courses related to their respective disciplines. Ability to teach broadly and in different formats will be considered a qualification.   

Recruitment seminar 

A recruitment seminar will take place in Copenhagen 5-6 March 2019. It will involve an introduction to PRIVACY and its research programme as well as a presentation of expectations regarding applications.     The number of participants is restricted. A limited number of bursaries covering trips and accommodation for one night are available. For more information and registration, please see the homepage: https://teol.ku.dk/privacy/events/2019-events/recruitment-seminar/

Job Description 

Postdocs at PRIVACY are required to be present at the centre for the duration of their employment. All members of the PRIVACY research team will have office space at the centre. They will participate in weekly meetings, field trips and workshops and be required to contribute to joint publications and publish research on selected cases in international peer-reviewed journals where appropriate.
