Intensified Collaboration with the Humanities
Starting in early 2014, LTG enters a research partnership with colleagues in the UiO School of Humanities, through a new focal research area dubbed SynSem. Participating UiO staff seek to strengthen the inter-disciplinary exchange between theoretical syntax and semantics, on the one hand, and language technologies, on the other hand, both in teaching and research. The partners prepare to hold a joint colloquium series, synchronize teaching plans, co-supervise students and doctoral fellows, and seek to establish joint reserach projects.
With funding from the School of Humanities and the Department of Informatics, SynSem expects to appoint at least two post-doctoral and three doctoral fellows in the course of the year. Two post-doctoral positions and one PhD fellowship are currently open in the School of Humanities; LTG expects to announce one doctoral fellowship in April 2014.
