CRL - Computing Research Laboratory Lead Scientist/Director

An outstanding senior scientist is sought to direct the Computing
Research Laboratory (CRL) at New Mexico State University, Las Cruces,
New Mexico.

Although only ten years old, CRL has become an internationally known
Artificial Intelligence center with extensive funding from national
and international sources. The Laboratory primarily focuses on
research and development in Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive
Science with specific emphasis on natural language understanding,
connectionism, information retrieval, interface design, knowledge
representation, and reasoning.

The Laboratory currently consists of a full-time director, fifteen
affiliated faculty from various departments, twelve full-time
researchers, and a number of graduate and undergraduate student
research assistants and hardware/software technicians. Equipment
currently available on campus to members of CRL includes an extensive
network of Sun workstations, a 20 processor Sequent Symmetry, and a
Cray ELC. Network access to a number of other large scale experimental
machines is also available.

Applicants should have research expertise in Computer Science,
Cognitive Science, Artificial Intelligence or a closely related field
and the ability to manage an interdisciplinary research facility. The
director will have leadership and management responsibility for all
aspects of the laboratory's activities and will: (a) lead a personal
research team, (b) guide all research activity in the laboratory, (c)
coordinate the interdisciplinary academic activities of the
laboratory, (d) foster a proposed graduate program in cognitive
science, (e) represent the laboratory to the university, government,
and industry, and (f) recruit new faculty, staff, and graduate
students for the laboratory.

The successful applicant will be appointed to a tenured position in an
appropriate department. The Laboratory maintains a close working
relationship with several academic departments, including Computer
Science, Psychology, Mathematical Sciences, Languages and Linguistics,
and Philosophy.

The position will remain open at least until October 1. Applications
will be accepted until it is filled. Applicants should send a
curriculum vitae and the names of three references to: Dr. Louise
Guthrie, CRL Search Committee, Computing Research Laboratory, PO Box
30001/CRL, New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, NM 88003.
