 COMPUTER & FIELD LINGUISTICS GRADUATE STUDENT SUPPORT AT PITT

Funding is available starting September, 1995, in the Linguistics
Department at the University of Pittsburgh for a graduate student
who can assist in developing tools for computer-assisted field
linguistics. In the current phase of the project that would include
this work, we are developing tools for entering and retrieving
information from lexical files and files containing marked text.
The goal is a system that is capable of producing documents of various
sorts (e.g. working dictionaries, analyzed texts), and that can
perform sophisticated information retrieval tasks that could help to
illustrate or test linguistic hypotheses.

The language materials currently used by the system are drawn from
Native American languages studied by Pitt faculty and students.
Candidates with an interest in Native American or other endangered
languages are especially welcome, but the research project has
potential appeal for anyone interested in computational linguistics.

Candidates should be experienced programmers able to work
independently with C++ and Windows, and should be interested in a
graduate degree at Pitt in Linguistics or in a closely-related field
with specialization in such areas as Computational Linguistics or
Psycholinguistics. The position provides an 8-month salary at the
level of a Pitt TA salary, as well as tuition and health benefits.
The application deadline for Fall 1995 admission to the Linguistics
Department is Feb. 1, 1995. For further information concerning this
position, send email to Rich Thomason at thomasonisp.pitt.edu. For
information concerning graduate study in Linguistics at the University
of Pittsburgh, send email to Alan Juffs at juffsisp.pitt.edu.
