Subject: White Rose Studentship

The Universities of Leeds and Sheffield, UK, are offering a "White Rose"
3-year PhD studentship, beginning October 2002 on a project entitled
"Characterising the impact of machine translation on information extraction
in an integrated knowledge management environment".

Candidates should have expertise in the formal description of English
grammar, holding a good Honours or Masters degree in, for example, modern
languages, linguistics or computer science. They should have good reading
knowledge of one language among Fr, De, Es, It, Ja, Pt, Ru and Zh, and feel
comfortable with high-level computer tools for corpus annotation.

The project will be jointly supervised by Prof. Tony Hartley, Centre for
Translation Studies, Leeds, and Prof. Yorick Wilks, Department of Computer
Science, Sheffield. The post will be based in Leeds but involve regular
visits to Sheffield, approximately 1 hour distant.

The studentship provides tuition fees, an annual maintenance grant of �8,000
and a contribution towards research expenses.
