PhD position for research project within WASP Linkoping

Ref IDA-2020-00040

Skilled and committed employees are a crucial factor in the success of Linköping University. And we need more of them. Our core expertise comes from teachers and researchers, but a successful university requires experienced and motivated employees in many fields. Everyone is important. We need to recruit many new employees thanks to, among all, an expansion in our research activity. We need you here. We look forward to receiving your application!

The Department of Computer and Information Science was founded in 1983 but its roots go back to the early 1970s. It is one of the largest computer science departments in northern Europe.

Our research covers a broad spectrum of fields, from core to applied computer sciences. Its vast scope also benefits our undergraduate and graduate programmes, and we now teach courses in several engineering programmes at bachelor’s and master’s levels, as well as the programmes in statistics, cognitive science and innovative programming.

LINKÖPING UNIVERSITY
Hereby advertises a position as
PhD student in Computer Science formally
based at the Department of Computer and Information Science

The position is announced within the framework of the WASP AI program. The successful candidate will become a member of the WASP Graduate School.

Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP) is Sweden’s largest individual research program ever, a major national initiative for strategically motivated basic research, education and faculty recruitment. The program addresses research on artificial intelligence and autonomous systems acting in collaboration with humans, adapting to their environment through sensors, information and knowledge, and forming intelligent systems-of-systems.

The vision of WASP is excellent research and competence in artificial intelligence, autonomous systems and software for the benefit of Swedish industry.

Duties
Those appointed to a PhD position shall primarily devote themselves to their studies. They may, however, also work with educational tasks, research, and administration. Before a PhD has been awarded, duties of this kind may not comprise more than 20 per cent of full time.

The present position is tied to the research project ‘Interpreting and Grounding Pre-trained Representations for Natural Language Processing’. The project is a collaboration between Linköping University, Chalmers University of Technology, and Recorded Future AB.

Building computers that understand human language is one of the central goals in artificial intelligence. A recent breakthrough on the way towards this goal is the development of neural models that learn deep contextualized representations of language. However, while these models have substantially advanced the state of the art in natural language processing (NLP) for a wide range of tasks, our understanding of the learned representations and our repertoire of techniques for integrating them with other knowledge representations and reasoning facilities remain severely limited. To address these gaps, this project will develop new methods for the interpretation, grounding, and integration of deep contextualized representations of language.

Qualifications
Only those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle study programmes may be appointed to doctoral studentships.

The general eligibility requirement for admission to third-cycle studies is a completed Master’s degree, or completion of course requirements of at least 240 ECTS, of which at least 60 ECTS are at Master level, or an equivalent level of knowledge acquired in Sweden or abroad. Admission to PhD studies in the research area of Computer Science requires either a Master’s degree in the field of the research area, or completion of courses of at least 60 ECTS in the field of the research area, including an independent project of at least 15 ECTS. Out of these 60 ECTS, at least 30 ECTS must be at the Master’s level.

You must have qualifications in computer science with a strong background in mathematics and a clear profile in natural language processing in the form of relevant courses and/or a Master’s thesis, or have an equivalent level of knowledge.

You must have documented ability to take advantage of and build upon research in the area of natural language processing, as well as the ability to independently define, motivate, and plan research projects. You can document these abilities by e.g. your Master’s thesis or publications in scientific journals or conferences. As an additional documentation, you must enclose with the application an independently written plan for a potential first paper for a doctoral thesis (see the section Application procedure).

You must be a proficient user of English.

Appointment time
The initial appointment to a doctoral studentship may apply for no longer than one year. An appointment may be renewed for no more than two years at a time. A person may be appointed to a doctoral studentship for a total of eight years. The total employment period may, however, not exceed the time corresponding to full-time third-cycle study for four years.

Starting date 
By agreement, but no later than 1 January, 2021.

Salary
The salary for PhD students is based on the department’s salary scale.

Union representatives
For contact with union representatives see below.

Application procedure
Apply for the position by clicking the “Apply” button below. Your application must be received at latest 2020-04-30. Applications and documents received after the date above will not be considered.

Your application must contain an independently written plan for a first paper that could become part of a doctoral thesis. The plan must present a specific research question that you would want to investigate, together with a discussion of why this particular question merits investigation, based on the description of the research project that the position will be tied to and previous literature. The plan must also propose a concrete method for addressing your research question. The research question may, but does not have to, be something that you actually will work on during your studies. The research plan may not be longer than four pages and must be written in English.

Equal opportunities
A majority of our PhD students  within the Department of Computer and Information Scienceare are men, which is why precedence will be given to women in cases where qualifications are deemed otherwise equivalent.

Linköping University will continue to develop as an attractive and creative place of work, characterized by equal terms and actively works for equality and diversity.

We look forward to receiving your application!
