Job Opening in Computational Linguistics at the University of Saarbrucken:

 Research Associate (Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter)
 in the Project BiLD

We are looking for an additional researcher to join the project BiLD,
located at the Department of Computational Linguistics of the University
of Saarbruecken.

BiLD (Bidirectional Linguistic Deduction) is a three year project (started
January '91) funded by the DFG (German Science Foundation). The project is
part of the Special Research Division 314: Artificial Intelligence and
Knowledge-Based Systems with locations at the Universities of Karlsruhe,
Kaiserslautern and Saarbruecken.

The main objective of the project BiLD is the development of uniform
methods for parsing and generation based on the paradigm of "NLP as
deduction" in the area of constraint-based approaches to linguistics.
Current project members are Guenter Neumann, Gertjan van Noord and Hans
Uszkoreit (PI).

Ideally, we are looking for a computer scientist or computational linguist
with theoretical and practical experience in automated deduction techniques
and interest in the application of AI deduction methods to natural language
processing. However, we are also interested in hearing from interested
individuals offering a good background in computational linguistics with
experience in the area of the processing of feature-logic-based grammars.

The University of Saarbruecken offers an excellent research environment for
anyone interested in computational linguistics, artificial intelligence,
and computer science. Several research projects are conducted at the
Computational Linguistics department. The University has one of the best
Computer Science departments in Germany. NLP is one of the main strengths
of the department's AI lab.

The university also hosts the DFKI (German Research Center for Artificial
Intelligence), where several project groups work in the area of NLP.
Furthermore a newly founded Max-Planck Institute for Computer Science with
a focus in Parallel Processing has been set up on the Saarbruecken campus.

Appointment initially until December 1993, with prospects for renewal until
December 1996,
Salary on the German BAT IIa scale. Exact income depends on age and marital

CV's and enquiries electronically or by post or during the conference to

Prof.Dr. Hans Uszkoreit
Universitaet des Saarlandes
W 6600 Saarbruecken 11
