			 JOB ANNOUNCEMENT
The Sonderforschungsbereich 340 Sprachtheoretische Grundlagen fuer die
Computerlinguistik (Theoretical Foundations of Computational
Linguistics) expects to have a position available (pending final
budgetary approval) to work on the project "Constraints on Grammar for
Efficient Generation." The principle investigators of the project are
Prof. Dr. Erhard Hinrichs and Dr. Dale Gerdemann. The goal of the
project is to investigate grammatical constructions which are
problematic for current head-driven generation algorithms and to
develop analyses for these constructions which will allow for
efficient generation. The project will concentrate on problems from
German syntax, particularly cases in which the head is empty or
displaced as is the case in German main clauses with verb second.
The project will be conducted at the Seminar fuer Natuerlich-
Sprachliche Systeme, University of Tuebingen (Germany) and it will
begin January 1992. Candidates with Ph.D. will be eligible for
full time and those with M.A. may work half time until a Ph.D. is
completed. The salary will be according to German BAT scale 2A.
We are seeking candidates who would be able to work either on the
syntax side of the project (using HPSG style grammars) or on the
algorithm and inplementation side (using Prolog or possibly LISP).
Please send cover letter, CV and names of two referees to
hinrichsmailserv.zdv.uni-tuebingen and
gerdemannmailserv.zdv.uni-tuebingen.de.
