Message 2: NLP - Four research positions, University of Sheffield

Date: Mon, 18 Oct 1999 12:29:15 +0100
From: Yorick Wilks <y.wilksdcs.shef.ac.uk>
Subject: NLP - Four research positions, University of Sheffield


Four researchers are required for a period of 2 years (in the first
instance) to work in the Natural Language Processing Group of the
Department of Computer Science, at the University of Sheffield.

Two positions involve working on Information Extraction (IE) and on
the General Architecture for Text Engineering (GATE), which is a
domain-specific software architecture for research and development in
Human Language Technologies. The area of research in this project
(MUSE) will be the adaptivity of IE systems to new genres and
domains. The third post involves computational linguistics or
statistical expertise to work on an EPSRC-funded project (METER) on
the reuse of texts and its detection. The fourth post involves
adapting IE work within a new EPSRC-funded project on the contents of
crime scenes (jointly with the University of Surrey). The successful
candidates will preferably be competent programmers, probably with a
sound knowledge of Natural Language Processing theory and practice, or
statistical methods. Knowledge of some of the following will also be
an advantage:

*statistical language processing;
*Information Extraction research;
*user interface programming in Java;
*database programming, especially using JDBC (or ODBC);
*foreign languages, and the Unicode standard;
*corpus processing.

The NLP research group's work can be viewed at

The appointments will be made on the RA1A or RA1B scales.
