Position Announcement University of Tuebingen Dept. of Linguistics Division of Computational Linguistics The Division of Computational Linguistics in the Dept. of Linguistics at the University of Tuebingen, Germany is seeking applications for a postdoctoral (or predoctoral) position to work in the area of automated language learning. Applicants who have developed relevant computational tools (such as finite-state utilities, pattern matching, statistical language modelling, etc) are encouraged to apply. The position is expected to last until the end of March 2002 (pending forthcoming approval). This position is sponsored by the European Commission: Training and Mobility of Researchers (TMR) and is part of the project ``Extending Computational Grammars by Learning'', coordinated by Prof. John Nerbonne at the University of Groningen. The successful candidate will be expected to interact with the postdoctoral researchers at the other participating sites: University of Groningen, SRI Cambridge, University of Antwerp, University College Dublin, ISSCO Geneva and Rank Xerox Grenoble. For details of the project see: http://lcg-www.uia.ac.be/lcg/. The European Commission has imposed firm funding restrictions on TMR postdoctoral positions: The postdoc must be 35 or younger and a European citizen, and must "cross a border" to accept the position.
