The Philosophy Department at Carnegie Mellon University solicits candidates
for one or more full-time, tenured or tenure-track positions in its
Computational Linguistics Program. Jobs will commence September 1, 1992.
The Computational Linguistics Program has 12 Core Faculty with appointments

Currently, there are 30 graduate students, approximately half of whom are in
the Ph.D. Program.
Applicants should be prepared to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in
linguistics theory and computational linguistics; to engage in
interdisciplinary research with colleagues, for example, in Computer Science,
Cognitive Psychology, Philosophy (including Logic), or Machine Translation;
to assist in the advising and administration of students in the Computational
Linguistics Program; and to participate in the activities of the Laboratory
for Computational Linguistics. Candidates should have backgrounds in
computer science as well as linguistics. Special consideration will be given
to applicants who have demonstrated competence in adapting linguistic theory
to computational applications.
Candidates should include a statement of research interests, a sample of
papers, curriculum vitae, and the names of at least three people from whom
letters of recommendation have been requested. Applicants who do not already
have the Ph.D. degree must offer evidence that the degree will be granted by

Subject: spoken language training fellowships
		State University of New York
 I wish to call to your attention the availability of PRE-
and POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS that we have through our NIH Train-
ing Grant on the "Development of Spoken Language Capacities".
The training grant provides support for individuals who have in-
terests in the development of speech production and perception.
Our training program is an interdisciplinary one involving the
participation of the departments of Psychology, Lingusitics, Com-
municative Disorders and Sciences, and Neurology and Pediatrics.
Pre-doctoral trainees will receive graduate degrees from one of
the cooperating departments and will participate in a specialized
training program. The training program emphasizes the use of
computerized laboratories so that trainees acquire competence in
the development of speech perception and production, the anatomy
and physiology of the auditory system, neurophysiological corre-
lates of speech processes, articulatory and acoustic phonetics,
phonology, and developmental disorders of speech processes.
Trainees are expected to conduct original experimental research
related to these topics in one or more of the laboratories of the
core faculty. In addition, training will consist of participa-
tion in interdisciplinary seminars and research meetings and for-
mal coursework (as necessary) in Psychology, Communicative
Disorders, Cognitive Science, and Linguistics.
 The core faculy participating in this program include:
Peter W. Jusczyk, Program Director, Department of Psychology
Jan Charles-Luce, Departments of Communicative Disorders and Sciences
 and Linguistics
LouAnn Gerken, Department of Psychology
Donald Henderson, Department of Communicative Disorders and Sciences
Jeri Jaeger, Department of Linguistics
