in a multilingual perspective is offered by the Doctoral Program in Brain,
Mind & Computer Science (BMCS, http://hit.psy.unipd.it/BMCS) at the
University of Padua, jointly with the Natural Language Processing research
unit (https://ict.fbk.eu/units/nlp/) at Fondazione Bruno Kessler (Trento,
Italy), where most of the research activities will be conducted. The
language of the PhD programme is English.

The deadline for application is: November 28 2022, 13:00 CEST

The candidate will have the unique opportunity to explore different fields
(Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Health & Well-Being) being
directly coached by very experienced teammates. The involved PhD will work
in an international environment at Fondazione Bruno Kessler (Trento, Italy).

Fondazione Bruno Kessler is an internationally well-known research center,
whose information technology department ranks first among the Engineering
and Information Science research centers in Italy.

The Natural Language Processing research unit (https://ict.fbk.eu/units/nlp/)
is an internationally well known research group focused on text mining
(information extraction and ontology population from text, analysis of the
sentiment and of the emotional content of texts); conversational agents
(task oriented dialogue systems, question answering, generation of
persuasive messages); and development of linguistic resources, particularly
for the Italian language.

opportunities of this call, contact Alberto Lavelli (Email)

The Doctoral Program in Brain, Mind & Computer Science (BMCS) emerges from
the close collaboration between faculty from psychology, cognitive
neuroscience and information science around the unifying topic of
human-computer interaction. Its program rests on the assumption that the
ability to work in groups with people of different background is now a
fundamental condition to produce scientific excellence and to develop
innovative skills that can be spent on the job market.




The candidate should possess basic knowledge on Natural Language Processing
and Machine Learning techniques (particularly deep learning architectures).
Experience on biomedical/clinical data will be a plus. Basic programming
skills (e.g. Python) would complete the profile.

Language requirements:

Proficiency in English is required, basic knowledge of Italian preferable.
