 Computational Linguisitics

We are looking for a further research officer to join the Machine
Translation/Natural Language Processing Group in the Department
of Language and Linguistics at the University of Essex. There
are currently 6 members of the group working on Machine
Translation, applied lexicography and terminology (sublangauge
analysis) and fundamental issues in semantic representation for
natural language in the context of MT. There are also a number of
doctoral students working on related topics, as well as temproary
visotrs from other European research groups involved in similar

Ideally, we are loking for someone to participate both in our R
and D work within the continuation programme for Eurotra and our
research work on semantics (and MT). We are particularly keen to
recruit someone with both a solid background in Formal Semantics
and a knowledge of Spanish, Dutch or German. However we are
interested in hearing from interested individuals offering a
background in linguistics, computational linguistics, computer
science or lexicography - knowledge of any EEC language in
addition to English would be useful.

Appointment initially until October 1991 with excellent prospects
for renewal until at least December 1992, on the RA1B/RA1A scale,
as appropriate given age/experience.
