PhD Research Position in Neural Network Machine Translation Technology, Mexico


We are seeking an outstanding and highly motivated PhD student to join the Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juárez at Mexico, and contribute to a new project in the area of Neural Network Machine Translation. More concretely, the project aims at neural network architecture to achieve the largest improvements for machine translation quality. The main tasks of the PhD researcher will be related to researching, planning, and designing a Neural Network translation system. This includes research related to the design/framework of a system capable of bridging the gap between human and machine translation. The PhD researcher will also be involved in parts of the development (programming) of a system accurate enough and sufficiently fast to provide better translations than current translation machines. Furthermore, the PhD student researcher will coordinate and co-supervise research assistants and BSc/MSc students who will help with programming (and design) tasks of different learning techniques based on large amount of data.  

The PhD researcher will be working under the supervision of Dr. Ricardo Rodriguez Jorge and Dr. Jolanta MIZERA-PIETRASZKO and will join an active research team of undergraduate and graduate students.
