Vacant Positions on EdSST - Short-Term Fellowships
There is an open call for applications for Short-Term Fellowships lasting around 6 months each. Research topics are expected to focus on the quantiative analysis and modelling of articulatory data. These Short-Term Fellowships provide an opportunity for outstanding young graduate researchers and PhD candidates to conduct a well-defined research project in one of the EdSST research areas at CSTR and SSRC. If you are interested in coming to Edinburgh as a Short-Term Fellow, you should get in touch with the researchers at CSTR and/or SSRC with whom you would like to collaborate. If you would like further information, please do not hesitate to contact the EdSST project manager, Maria Wolters. The call closes on January 25, 2008.

The research proposal should be 2-3 pages long. In your proposal, you should clearly state your research question, explain why this research question is relevant and timely, explain how it fits with the priorities of EdSST, and provide a rough workplan.
Candidates for Short-Term Fellowships should have a first or upper second class honours degree or its equivalent, and/or a Masters degree, in Informatics, Phonetics, Speech and Language Therapy, or Linguistics. Informatics includes areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science, Computer Science, Information Engineering, and Computational Linguistics. Linguistics includes areas such as Phonetics, Speech Science, Speech and Language Therapy, and Human Communication Sciences. We will also consider applicants with degrees in Electrical Engineering, Psychology, Mathematics, Philosophy, and Physics. Finally, you must fulfil the European Union Marie Curie EST selection criteria:
- You should be in the first four years of your research career. Time spent away from research, e.g. on maternity leave or in industry, does not count towards these four years. For the purposes of the Marie Curie EST programme, your research career begins once you have completed a Master's degree or equivalent, and embarked on a research project afterwards.
- You may not already hold a PhD.
- If you are not a British citizen, you should have lived or worked in the UK for less than 12 months in the 3 years immediately preceding your appointment.
