 RESEARCH STUDENTSHIP IN NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING

 The department seeks to recruit a postgraduate student
 to start in January 1995 in the area of natural
 language processing, preferably in lexicon construction,
 or computational pragmatics or semantics.


Candidates should have a good honours degree in a relevant
discipline (not necessarily Computer Science), and preferably some
NLP experience. The award is for three years and is at the standard
rate (just under 5K pounds a year) but there may be opportunities for
additional income within the university's regulations on graduate student
employment. A brochure on the work of the NLP group can be
obtained from lizdcs.sheffield.ac.uk.

 Enquiries and applications should be addressed to:

 Professor Yorick Wilks, Director of Research,
