The Alan Turing Institute
Launched in November 2015, the Alan Turing Institute is the national institute for data science and artificial intelligence. Our mission is to make great leaps in research to change the world for the better.
The Institute is headquartered at The British Library, and brings together researchers from a range of disciplines – mathematics, statistics, computer science, engineering and social sciences, – from thirteen leading universities and industry partners.
As a Post-Doctoral Research Associate (RA) on the Living with Machines Project you will work closely with the project PI (Dr Ruth Ahnert), Co-I Dr McGillivray and the wider inter-disciplinary team based at the Turing Institute and the British Library in the linguistic processing and modelling of the project’s ambitious digitized source base. You will have the opportunity to play an active part in all aspects of research from linguistic processing, through modelling to writing up and publication.
Duties & Responsibilities
You will help oversee the processing of historical text sources and work closely with the project’s data scientists to ensure high quality of the processed digital datasets. You will take lead responsibility for a substantive strand of linguistic enquiry using computational methods. You will build natural language processing models to analyse conceptual change in the historical textual datasets of the project, and will develop algorithms for diachronic semantic analysis of the texts. You will play a collaborative role in building the code base and writing joint conference papers and publications arising from the project.
