Update: This position has now been filled.

January 2021: I have a funded position available for a student to do a full-time Masters by Dissertation in Computer Science at the University of Cape Town, starting in March 2021 or soon afterwards. This is a 2-year research degree with no coursework requirement. Applicants should have a 4-year Bachelor's or Honours degree majoring in Computer Science. Prior experience in Machine Learning or Natural Language Processing is required - this could be through coursework, self-study, work experience or doing a research project in the area.
