Editor for this issue: Ann Sawyer <sawyerlinguistlist.org>


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.

The Computational Linguistics group at the University of Tuebingen has an

Alfa-informatica Department (Prof. John Nerbonne) at the University of
Groningen and with the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia (Kiril Simov).
The project is funded by the Volkswagen-Stiftung. The focus of the
project is to apply computational methods to a rich set of dialectal data
from all regions of Bulgaria. The goal is to investigate the applicability
of dialectometric techniques in order to measure the degree of diversity in
Bulgarian dialects.

Programming experience and knowledge of finite-state automata or
statistical methods are essential. Knowledge of Bulgarian and previous
experience in the areas of dialectology and phonology is a plus.

The advertised position will provide the opportunity of working toward a
Ph.D. degree in computational linguistics at the University of Tuebingen.
An M.A. degree (or equivalent) in computational linguistics, linguistics or
related fields is required.

The project will start as soon as possible. The position will provide
funding for three years (36 months) and should begin as soon as possible,
but no later than Jan. 1, 2006. The successful applicant will receive a
contract for one year extendible for two further years subject to
evaluation after the first year. The salary is determined by the German
civil servants payscale (Verguetungsgruppe BAT IIa/2) and amounts to
approximately 28.000 Euro per year. The exact salary amount varies
depending on age and marital status.
