 BRITISH NATIONAL CORPUS

 Editorial Assistant - RS1A

Applications are invited for this one-year post within OUCS to assist
with the encoding, storage and distribution of the British National
Corpus. This is a major DTI/SERC funded collaborative venture, the
goal of which is the creation and distribution of a 100 million
word on-line corpus of English text, for use in linguistics research.
Incorporating both written and spoken material, the corpus breaks
new ground in terms of its size, variety of sources, consistency of
format, and availability to users.

An Editorial Assistant is required to take responsibility for quality
control of texts going into the Corpus. This will involve automatic
validation of SGML markup, some proof-reading and some correction of texts.

You should have significant experience of computer-based text
manipulation systems, preferably in a Unix environment. You should be
able to undertake repetitious and routine work without much supervision,
and to a high level of accuracy. Knowledge of UNIX tools and some
experience of SGML is desirable. An interest in linguistics, text
processing, proof-reading or editorial skills would be a great advantage.

The salary will be on grade RS1A in the salary range #12,129-#19,328.

Further details and application forms may be obtained from Judith
Thompson, OUCS, 13 Banbury Rd, Oxford OX2 6NN (tel: 0865-273230;
e-mail JUDITHUK.AC.OXFORD.VAX)

The closing date for applications is 24 June
Interviews will be held during week beginning 13 July
