			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. 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. Details of
 the TMR program may be found at:

 http://www.cordis.lu/tmr/

Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, statement of research 
interests, up to three representative publications, and the names and 
addresses (electronic and mail) of three references (whom we will 
contact for letters, as needed), to:
