The Language and Inference Technology (LIT) group at the Institute for
Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) invites applications for a new
tenure track position at the assistant professor level. Candidates
from all areas of applied natural language processing will be
considered, but preference may be given to candidates with expertise
in information retrieval or large-scale evaluation exercises and their
statistical underpinnings.

Faculty duties include undergraduate teaching in the computer science,
artificial intelligence and information science programs, as well as
courses in information retrieval and natural language processing.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline, a demonstrated
record of excellence in research, and a strong commitment to

teach in Dutch within two years after being hired. The starting date
is September 1, 2002 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Research within the LIT group is centered around the foundations and
applications of inference and language processing systems, with a
strong emphasis on the evaluation of algorithms and methods, both
theoretically and experimentally. Current research interests in the
group range from automated reasoning, constraint programming,
satisfability checking, and formal verification to digital libraries,
information retrieval, parsing technologies, computational syntax and
semantics, question answering and knowledge engineering. The group is
strongly internationally oriented, and currently consists of nearly 25
people. More information about the LIT group and its members can be
