The University of Luxembourg is a multilingual, international research University.
The University of Luxembourg is looking for its Interdisciplinary Centre of Security and Trust (SNT) for a :
Doctoral Candidate (PhD student) in Automated Document Processing (m/f)
University of Luxembourg (UL) is offering a fully funded PhD student position in Automated Software Engineering to start as soon as possible.
The University of Luxembourg seeks to hire an outstanding PhD Candidate at its Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT). SnT is a recently formed centre carrying out interdisciplinary research in secure, reliable and trustworthy ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) systems and services, often in collaboration with industrial, governmental or international partners. SnT is active in several international research projects funded by the EU framework programme and the European Space Agency. For further information you may check: www.securityandtrust.lu
This PhD thesis will be done in collaboration with a Luxembourgish company which processes a lot of documents. The PhD thesis will extensively explore techniques aiming at (1) automate the processing of these documents, (2) extract data and knowledge from these documents, (3) compute smart “diff” of documents (syntactic and semantics), (4) continuously learn from past activities.
The proposed thesis topic focuses on automated techniques for automated document classification, smart document processing and ability to extract value-added intelligence from data stored (and being constantly updated) in databases.
As there is no off-the-shelf solution that may provide automation in the specific context of this PhD thesis, the above challenges will be addressed with a focused R&D approach requiring research-oriented investigations, context adaptation and prototyping.
These objectives are challenging from a research viewpoint since it requires to devise novel approaches combining Information Retrieval (including Natural Language Processing) and smart approaches (including learning and analysis) to express and translate into operations the know-how and current practice of experts.
The team you will be working with:
Under the direction of a PhD Supervisor, you will carry out research activities and write a thesis, the main goal being to obtain a PhD in the area of Automated Software Engineering. You may be tasked with conducting literature surveys and establishing state-of-the-art; developing necessary experimental and simulation facilities where required; planning, executing, and analysing experiments and simulations; conducting joint and independent research activities; contributing to project deliverables, milestones, demonstrations, and meetings; disseminating results at international scientific conferences/workshops and peer reviewed scientific publications.
In addition, you will take part in a project in collaboration with a Luxembourgish FinTech company specialized in managing financial flows. One of the main goals of the project is to develop new ICT methods enabling better automation in document classification and document processing.
The University offers a Ph.D. study program with a Fixed Term Contract up to 3 years in total, pending satisfaction of progress milestones (CDD), on full time basis (40hrs/week). The University offers highly competitive salaries and is an equal opportunity employer. You will work in an exciting international environment and will have the opportunity to participate in the development of a newly created research centre.
