 Position in Computational Linguistics
 At Carnegie Mellon University


The Philosophy Department at Carnegie Mellon University solicits
candidates for a full-time tenure-track position in its Computational
Linguistics Program. The position is at the Assistant/Associate
Professor rank; candidates currently holding tenure will be considered.
The job will commence with Autumn Term, 1996.

The Computational Linguistics Program has 13 Core Faculty with
appointments in either the Department of Philosophy or Computer
Science. The Program offers the Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. degrees in
Computational Linguistics. Currently, there are 32 graduate students,
more than half of whom are in the Ph.D. Program.

Applicants should be prepared to teach undergraduate and graduate
courses in computational linguistics or closely related topics, such
as applications of computational linguistics to information management
or machine translation; to engage in cross-disciplinary research with
colleagues, in particular in applied research projects; to assist in
the advising of students in the Computational Linguistics Program and
the administration of the Program; and to participate in the
activities of the Laboratory for Computational Linguistics.
Candidates ideally should have strong backgrounds in computer science
as well as linguistics. Special consideration will be given to
applicants with demonstrated ability to establish and sustain funded
research projects.

Candidates should include with their applications a statement of
research interests, a sample of papers, curriculum vitae, and the
names of at least three people from whom letters of recommendation
have been requested. Applicants who do not already have the Ph.D.
degree must offer evidence that the degree will be granted by August
