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 position (possibly extendable to pre-doctoral candidates) to work in the area of automated language acquisition. Special consideration will be given to applicants whose research involves combining statistically-based and corpus-based methods with feature structure-based grammars. The position is to last for 36 months, starting from 4/98. However, appointments for shorter periods are possible. This position is sponsored by the European Commision: 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, Trinity College Dublin, ISSCO Geneva and Rank Xerox Grenoble. For details of the project see: http://odur.let.rug.nl/~nerbonne/tmr/lcg-tmr.html The European Commision imposed 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. This last point means: must not have worked more than 18 of the last 24 months in the country in which they accept the position. They further may not be a citizen of the country in which they accept the award.
