Jobs: Comp Linguistics: Lecturer/Reader, University of Edinburgh

Editor for this issue: Bethany Townsend <bethanylinguistlist.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 at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

SICSA Readership/Lectureship in Large Scale and Robust Natural Language

The School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh invites
applications from candidates of international standing in Large Scale and
Robust Natural Language Processing.

Personal ubiquitous interfaces require research enabling multiple, rich
communication channels between people and vast bodies of information. We
seek candidates of international standing in two areas within large scale,
robust natural language processing, relevant to developing new forms of
multimodal interaction:

1. The automatic, unsupervised understanding of language in open domains
for applications such as machine reading and listening, and human language
technologies at the web scale.

2. The development of models and algorithms for terascale processing.

The appointee will extend the current strengths of the School in
data-driven approaches to written and spoken language processing and
statistical machine learning.

Leading researchers across Scotland, including the School of Informatics at
the University of Edinburgh, the Computer Science Departments of the
Universities of Glasgow and St Andrews, and others,have recently
established the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA).
The new post is part of the School of Informatics' planned expansion within
the Alliance. Three posts in
other areas of Informatics in Edinburgh are also being advertised.

Lecturer Appointments will be within Grade 8: (GBP 33,779 - GBP 40,335).
Reader Appointments will be within Grade 9: (GBP 42,791 - GBP 48,161).
