Örebro University and the School of Science and Technology is offering a PhD position in Computer Science with a focus on on learning and reasoning with language models concluding with the doctoral degree. The PhD student will be affiliated with the research Centre for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS,, which carries out multi-disciplinary research at the intersection of robotics, machine learning, artificial intelligence and computer vision.

Project description

The project will investigate how to develop systems that learn and reason with language models in an artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous systems context.  While there has been a lot of progress in natural language processing and in machine learning and language models, the ability of such systems to reason remains limited. Therefore, the project will study integrated approaches to learning and reasoning with language models.  It will combine symbolic knowledge based approaches with neural models to address problems related to natural language processing (NLP), conversational AI and language grounding.

The project is part of the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP), Sweden’s largest ever individual research program, and a major national initiative for startegic basic research, education and faculty recruitment. The vision of WASP is excellent research and competence in artificial intelligence, autonomous systems and software for the benefit of Swedish industry. For more information about the research and other activities conducted within WASP please visit:

The PhD students will belong to the graduate school within WASP, which is dedicated to provide the skills needed to analyze, develop, and contribute to the interdisciplinary area of AI, autonomous systems and software. The curriculum provides the foundations, perspectives, and state-of-the-art knowledge in the different disciplines taught by leading researchers in the field. Through an ambitious program with research visits, partner universities, and visiting lecturers, the graduate school actively supports forming a strong multi-disciplinary and international professional network between PhD-students, researchers and industry. For more information on the graduate program within WASP, read more at

The successful candidate should show strong and independent problem solving and critical analytical abilities. Furthermore, the candidate must have the ability to co-operate. Fluent spoken and written command of English is essential, while knowledge of Swedish is not necessary. Having courses, a thesis or publications based on the idea of integrating symbolic and sub-symbolic AI methods, large language models, and conversational agents is a merit.
