 Tenure Track Position
 available at the
 Graduate Institute of Linguistics
 National Chung Cheng University

The Graduate Institute of Linguistics at National Chung Cheng University
in Chia-Yi, Taiwan, has a tenure track position in semantics and
pragmatics available starting August 1, 2000. The position is open rank,
but scholars who are qualified to be appointed at the rank of full
professor may also be considered for Director of the Graduate Institute of
Linguistics. Candidates must have solid research records in Chinese
linguistics. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in hand by June 2000 in order
to be appointed to the position by August 1, 2000. Salary will be
commensurate with rank and experience. The annual salary is about
NT$992,000 for a first year assistant professor, NT$1,031,000 for a first
year associate professor, and NT$1,213,000 for a first year full
professor. (Previous teaching and research experience can be counted
toward the salary scale in all three ranks.) Please send a letter of
application, along with a C.V., a statement of research goals, three
letters of recommendation, and copies of major publications to:

Message 2: POSITION IN HUMAN SENTENCE PROCESSING

Date: Wed, 1 Dec 1999 15:03:12 +0100
From: Matthew W. Crocker <crockercoli.uni-sb.de>
Subject: POSITION IN HUMAN SENTENCE PROCESSING


 POSITION IN HUMAN SENTENCE PROCESSING

The Department of Computational Linguistics at the University of
Saarland, Saarbruecken, Germany, invites applications for the position
of Research Scientist ("Wissenschaftlicher Assistent") in the area of
HUMAN SENTENCE PROCESSING. The ideal candidate will have interests and
experience in some of the following areas:

 + Experimental psycholinguistics: designing, running and analysing
 experiments on human subjects using various paradigms such as
 self-paced reading, eye-tracking, language production etc.

 + Corpus-based, probabilistic methods: the analysis of corpora,
 including the extraction of lexical and syntactic biases,
 estimation of probabilities and measures of association.

 + Computational psycholinguistics: implementation of computational
 models of human sentence processing, including stochastic
 modelling (connectionist or probabilistic).

The position involves the pursuit of independent and collaborative
research, as well as a contribution to administrative, supervisory and
teaching activities, within the newly established Psycholinguistics
group. Candidates should have a PhD degree in a relevant subject
area. The position is on the BAT IIa scale (up to DM 80K, depending on
age and family status) and is tenable for 3 years in the first
instance with the possibility of renewal.

The University of Saarland has an international profile in the area of
computational linguistics (Depts. of Computational Linguistics,
Informatics and DFKI: The German Research Centre for Artificial
Intelligence). The University also has an active programme of research
in cognitive science, with participation of the Depts. of Psychology
and Philosophy, which is further supported by a Graduate School for
Cognitive Science and a Centre of Excellence (SFB 378) in the area of
"Resource Adaptive Cognitive Processing".

The position is available from early 2000. While applications will be
accepted until the position is filled, submissions received before 
14 December, 1999 are assured fullest consideration. Interested persons
should send a letter of application giving contact details for three
possible referees, a full CV, and statement of research interests to:

 Dr. Matthew W. Crocker
 Department of Computational Linguistics
 University of Saarland
 66041 Saarbruecken
 Germany

 Applications and inquiries by email are also welcome, and should 
 be sent to: crockercoli.uni-sb.de

The University of Saarland seeks to increase the proportion of women
in positions where they are under-represented, and therefore
particularly encourages applications from women. In the selection
procedure, disabled persons with equivalent qualifications will be
favoured.
