2 PhD grands (3 years)

The ILCB and the Archimede Institute offer 2 PhD positions in the field of Artificial Intelligence applied to Language, Communication and the Brain. The topics covered will be interdisciplinary, priority will be given to projects co-supervised by supervisors from different disciplines in different laboratories. Subjects proposed with only one supervisor will be the exception.

PhD subjects will be at the intersection between AI in its broadest sense (machine learning, deep AI, statistical AI, parsimonious methods, classification, natural language processing, symbolic AI, algorithmic AI, etc.) and its application to the study of the brain bases of language and communication. Two types of topics may be proposed:

  • an in-depth research of AI problems related to the study of the cerebral bases of language and communication.
  • an application of AI methods to the study of the cerebral bases of language and communication.
Candidates have to contact their potential supervisors before submitting their application.
