At the Information Retrieval Lab of the Department of Computer Science, University of Copenhagen creates models and calculations that permit PCs to recover and break down large scale content. Uses of our work incorporate web indexes, recommended frameworks, content comprehension and examination.
We are scanning for PhD understudies keen on pushing the limits of Information Retrieval with us.
You will fill in as a feature of the Quantum Information Access and Retrieval Theory (QUARTZ) European Training Network, granted by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and development program. This system comprises of 7 colleges, 5 mechanical accomplices, and will teach a sum of 14 PhD understudies through regular committed preparing exercises. More subtle elements can be found here: http://www.quartz-itn.eu
The Information Retrieval Lab has two open PhD positions:
PhD position 1 looks to examine the level of instability in likelihood appraisals of positioning models. More points of interest can be found here: http://www.quartz-itn.eu/ventures/esr-8
PhD position 2 tries to research compositionality in content semantics. More points of interest can be found here: http://www.quartz-itn.eu/ventures/esr-9
Why do a PhD in Copenhagen?
The Information Retrieval Lab at the University of Copenhagen offers an exploration domain with a better opportunity: to a huge degree, you shape the examination you deal with and the thoughts you seek after. The lab tries to be a top research condition for Information Retrieval that scaffolds hypothesis, observational reviews and modern effort.
