Courses to be taught may include Introduction to Computational

processing, summarization), Perl/Java programming and a seminar.

We seek outstanding applicants with graduate training in Linguistics,
knowledge of computer science, and senior research/development
credentials. A Ph.D. is required. As we anticipate a permanent hire in
the near future, as well as continuing development of our graduate
curriculum, we particularly seek applicants with extensive experience

future direction of the program. Salary is commensurate with experience
and expected to be around $45,000 for a junior appointment and $70,000
for a senior appointment.

Georgetown's Computational Linguistics program is part of a large and
diverse department devoted to both research and undergraduate and
graduate education. The program has many ties to the computational
linguistics communities in government and industry. 

A letter of application, CV, representative publications, and names of
three references should be sent to Prof. Paul Portner
(, CLI Search Committee, Department of
Linguistics, Georgetown University, Washington DC 20057.
