The Department of Near Eastern Studies at the University announces the
following position opening:

 Arabic Language and Culture

The Department of Near Eastern Studies of the University of Michigan is
inviting applications for a tenure-track appointment in Arabic language
and culture. Such authorization is likely at the Assistant Professor
level, but senior candidates may be considered. Applicants must hold the
PhD degree and be able to teach both undergraduate and graduate courses
in Arabic language and linguistics and also teach courses that treat
language as a social and cultural phenomenon (for example, how language
is used in the construction of nationalism, ethnicity, gender, and
political rhetoric). Applicants should specifically identify their
research interests within language-and-culture studies and describe the
lecture courses they can and wish to teach. The Department of Near
Eastern Studies has strengths in both classical and modern Arabic
language and literature, in Islamic religion, and in the history of the
Middle East. We seek a colleague who will complement the present staff
and who will broaden our curricular offerings in language and culture.

Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, including bibliography, as
well as no more than three samples of their scholarly research. Named
referees need not send their letters at the time of application. Send
application to Chair, Arabic Language and Culture Search Committee,
Department of Near Eastern Studies, 3074 Frieze Building, University of
Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1285.

	Research Positions in Multi-Lingual Information Retrieval
		at the Rank Xerox Research Centre

The Multi-Lingual Theory and Technology group at the Rank Xerox
Research Centre (located in Grenoble, France) is looking for motivated
researchers to work on problems in information retrieval and natural
language processing. Two positions are available.

			Research Associate

The candidate will provide technical support for our work in
multi-lingual information retrieval and contribute to the development
of an information retrieval system suited to our research needs.
Secondary work will involve other aspects of natural language
processing, as our interests range from automatic translation to text
generation to information retrieval in a multi-lingual setting. There
are a number of active projects that range in scope from long term
basic research to short term prototyping.

Applicants should have the equivalent of at least a U.S. master's
degree in computer science. A degree in a closely related field may
also be acceptable if they have a strong computational
background. Candidates must have excellent skills and considerable
experience with Unix and C/C++ programming. Some experience with both
corpus linguistics and large scale information retrieval problems
would be highly desirable. The applicant must be able to communicate
effectively in English and knowledge of other major European languages
would also be helpful. There is no specific deadline for application,
but we expect the position to be filled early in 1996 at the latest.

			Research Scientist

The candidate will collaborate in the development of new approaches to
solving multi-lingual information retrieval problems and will also
contribute to our ongoing work to develop statistical and linguistic
tools for analyzing text in English, French, German, and other major
European languages. In particular, (s)he will collaborate with other
researchers at RXRC on projects involving the automatic extraction and
translation of terminology from multi-lingual text collections.

Applicants should have the equivalent of a PhD in computer science or
some closely related field and have practical experience with
information retrieval and a strong computational background. The ideal
background would include some experience with computational
linguistics, natural language processing, machine learning, and/or the
statistical analysis of text. Experience with large scale information
retrieval problems is also desirable. Candidates will be expected to
develop new ideas and work on long term basic research, so creativity
and strong personal motivation are essential qualities. The applicant
must be able to communicate effectively in English, and working
knowledge of French, German, or other major European languages would be
valuable. The position will be available in mid-1996.

Applications should be sent to:
