2 PhD positions are available at the University of Amsterdam. The project seeks to develop deep learning methods for predictive analysis of complex network data (e.g., social networks, trading networks etc), focusing on statistical modelling of information exchange in transaction networks. We will exploit data provided by an industrial partner. As information in these networks mostly comes in a textual form, we will develop methods for inducing predictive semantics representations of texts, relying both on the text itself but also on the flow of information in the network.
There are 2 PhD vacancies within this project:
PhD1 will focus primarily on clustering and predictive modelling (affiliated with IvI, supervised by Prof. Max Welling), and
PhD2 will focus primarily on natural language processing (affiliated with ILLC. supervised by Dr. Ivan Titov).
Application deadline: 15 October 2015. For more information, seeĀ http://www.uva.nl/en/about-the-uva/working-at-the-uva/vacancies/item/15-335_two-phd-candidates-in-deep-learning-and-natural-language-processing.html
