please bring this to the attention of any potential applicants, etc.

University of Cambridge

Department of Linguistics / Computer Laboratory

Experimental Psycholinguist / Computational Linguist

Applications are invited for two Research Assistant positions on a
Joint Research Council Cognitive Science / HCI Initiative project to
be housed in the Department of Linguistics and directed by Dr. P.
Warren and Dr. F.J. Nolan of that department and Dr. E.J. Briscoe of
the Computer Laboratory. The project, entitled "Post-lexical and
Prosodic Phonological Processing", will commence on 1st October
1991 and has a duration of 3 years.

The proposed research will investigate the regularity of post-
lexical phonological processes and their function in human speech
comprehension, integrating work on 1) the phonetic realisation of
such processes in fluent speech, 2) the recognition and
representation of information associated with these processes and
3) its integration with syntactic and interpretative aspects of
comprehension. The aim is, firstly, to understand which phonetic
phenomena are recognised during phonological processing and
how the information extracted is represented and integrated with
other aspects of processing, and secondly, to develop a
computational model of such processing, testing it using
experimental phonetic and psycholinguistic techniques.

Applicants should be computer literate and have research
experience in one or more of the following areas: experimental
phonetics, experimental psycholinguistics, computational
linguistics. The appointment will be made on the Research Grade 1
scale (#11399 - #16755 depending on age and qualifications).

Please send applications, including curriculum vitae and the
names and addresses of three referees, to Dr Paul Warren,
Department of Linguistics, Sidgwick Avenue, Cambridge CB3 9DA
(tel. 0223 335004 / 335026) or via e-mail to Further details are available from the same
address. Applications should be received by June 15th 1991.
