The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards. Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Description:

RESEARCH FELLOW (19,460 - 25,699 British pounds per annum)

We require a Research Assistant to join a research group
engaged in a project named TUNA (Towards a Unified Algorithm
for the generation of referring expressions). The project
aims to obtain a better understanding of the way in which
speaker/writers refer to individuals or sets of individuals,
by building computational models of references to objects
or sets of objects. The project involves computational,
linguistic and logical challenges, and is partly based on
empirical (i.e. experimental as well as corpus-based)
research methods. TUNA involves a collaboration with the
Open University and with the University of Tilburg (The
Netherlands).

The research group is looking to recruit a research fellow
to play a leading role in the remaining 16 months of this
project, starting as early as possible. (Funding possibilities
after this period will be explored.) Experience at PhD
level in a relevant area of computing science, computational
linguistics, or logic is essential, as are good programming
skills.

For information about TUNA see:

http://www.itri.brighton.ac.uk/projects/tuna/TUNA-index.html

Informal enquires may be directed to Dr Kees van Deemter
at kvdeemtercsd.abdn.ac.uk.

Online application forms and further particulars will be
available from www.abdn.ac.uk/jobs. Alternatively, email

answering service) quoting reference number YCS044R for
an application pack.

Diversity and Equal Opportunities are promoted throughout
the University.
