Institute of Cognitive Science
September, 1994

The Institute of Cognitive Science of the University of Colorado invites
applications for a tenure-track position in the Department of Linguistics.

Candidates should have demonstrated interests in Cognitive Science, with a
specialization in Linguistics, that can contribute to interdisciplinary
research and training at the doctoral level. Candidates must also be able
to teach a range of undergraduate and graduate courses in Linguistics and
Cognitive Science. A research focus on syntax and semantics in discourse is
very strongly preferred, using computational approaches or strongly
interdisciplinary approaches within Cognitive Science. Research interest in
more than one language, including English, is desirable. Preference will be
given to candidates at the assistant professor level but candidates at all
levels will be considered.

The University of Colorado strongly supports the principle of diversity. We
are particularly interested in receiving applications from women, ethnic
minorities, disabled persons, veterans, and veterans of the Vietnam era.

Applicants should send a resume and three letters of reference to Dr.
Martha Polson, Associate Director, Institute of Cognitive Science, Campus
Box 344, University of Colorado, Boulder, CO 80309 USA. Applications should
be received by January 15, 1995, to ensure consideration. Early
applications are encouraged.

Thank you very much.
Lise Menn, Chair, Department of Linguistics, U. of Colorado
I will be happy to respond to preliminary inquiries.

 COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS POSITION

The Natural Language Understanding project at IBM Research (Yorktown Hts, NY)
has a temporary, full or part time opening for someone with experience in
parsing or related algorithms and C programming. Prior practical experience
developing NLU or AI systems would be a plus, but is not required. The
position will involve working in a team on various aspects of (spoken) natural
language understanding. Although a background in any of AI/computational
linguistics/linguistics is not essential, some knowledge of any of these
areas would be very helpful. Primary determinants for selection will be
programming expertise, knowledge of algorithms, creativity, independence
and drive, as well as ability to work well in a team. The initial position
will be for one year. Renewal is a possibility.

Please send CV's via email or regular mail.

From: NAME William Marslen-Wilson <UBJTA38CCS.BBK.AC.UK>
Subject: Experimental and Computational Research in Speech Comprehension


CENTRE FOR SPEECH AND LANGUAGE
Birkbeck College
University of London

RESEARCH ASSISTANTS AND SYSTEMS MANAGER

Applications are invited for four research and research-support
positions in the Center for Speech and Language at Birkbeck College,
to work on experimental and computational research into spoken
language comprehension in normal and language-impaired populations,
with Professors William Marslen-Wilson and Lorraine K. Tyler. All of
these positions have a starting date of January 1st 1995, and three
positions, funded by an MRC Programme Grant, are potentially five
year appointments, to December 1999. The fourth position, funded by
an ESRC project grant, is available for 3 years, until December 1997.

Position 1: Research Assistant
This position is to support current experimental and computational
research into the representation and processing of lexical form,
focussing on the phonological aspects of speech comprehension, and
working with William Marslen-Wilson and Gareth Gaskell. Candidates
should have a background in experimental psycholinguistics and
linguistics. Experience in computational modelling using connectionist
techniques would be an advantage. This MRC-funded position is
available for five years from January 1995. Salary will be on the 1A
scale (16075-19141 English pounds, inclusive of London Allowance).

Position 2: Research Assistant
This position is to support experimental research into language
comprehension in normal and language-impaired populations, ranging
from lexical access to syntactic parsing and semantic interpretation, and
working primarily with Lorraine K. Tyler. Candidates should have a
background in cognitive psychology and/or psycholinguistics, and
clinical experience would be an advantage. This MRC-funded position
is available for two years from January 1995, with a strong possibility of
extension for a further three years. Salary will be on the 1A scale
(16075-19141 English pounds, inclusive of London Allowance).

Position 3: Research Assistant
This position is to support computational and experimental research into
the mental representation and processing of English inflectional and
derivational morphology, working with William Marslen-Wilson and
Mary Hare (at UCSD). Candidates should have a background in
language and connectionism, with experience both of experimentation
and modelling. This ESRC-funded post is available for three years from
January 1995. Salary is expected to be on the 1A scale (16075-23087
English pounds, inclusive of London Allowance).

Position 4: Half-time Systems Manager
Applications are invited for a half-time post supporting the computing
needs of the Centre for Speech and Language. Applicants should have
experience working with UNIX/C systems and PC/Mac-based
networks. As well as supporting the research centre's computer
network, the successful candidate will be responsible for the
maintenance and possibly development of the experimental software
used by the research group. An interest in Experimental Psychology
would therefore be an advantage. The post would be suitable for
someone wishing to pursue a part-time research degree within the
research group or elsewhere in London. This MRC-funded position is
tenable from January 1995, for up to five years. Salary is on the AR2
scale at 9570 English pounds, including London Allowance.

To apply for any of these posts, send three copies of your CV, plus the
names and addresses of 3 referees, to: Professor William Marslen-
Wilson, Department of Psychology, Birkbeck College, Malet St.,
London WCIE 7HX. Fax: (44)-(0)71-631-6312. Email:
ubjta38cu.bbk.ac.uk. Please make clear which post you are applying
for.

Closing date for applications is October 14th, 1994
