 UNIVERSITY OF TUEBINGEN
 DEPARTMENT OF LINGUISTICS
 DIVISION OF COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS

 RESEARCH POSITION FOR A COMPUTATIONAL LINGUIST

We are advertising a research position in the VERBMOBIL project, which
is funded by the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF).
VERBMOBIL is concerned with the development of a portable
speech-to-speech translation system for "face-to-face"-communication.

The VERBMOBIL-subproject at the Department of Computational
Linguistics in Tuebingen is concerned with Semantic Evaluation and
Transfer for Machine Translation between German and English, in
particular:

- the semantic repraesentation, disambiguation and translation of
 temporal expressions

- the semantic repraesentation, disambiguation and translation of
 complex words

- the computational modelling of these empirical domains, and

- and the implementation of a working subsystem of VERBMOBIL in
 collaboration with other VERBMOBIL sites.

Candidates should have experience in computational linguistics
(particularly in unification-based formalisms) or computer science.
Knowledge of German and experience in Machine Traslation,
NL-Syntax/Semantics (particularly in Head-Driven Phrase Structure
Grammar, Discourse Representation Theory and in the semantics of tense
and aspect), Logic, or Prolog-Programming is highly desirable. The
successful candidate will be expected to work both on theoretical
issues and practical implementation.

The project started in 1993 and will last until December 1996, with
the possibility of extension depending on funding. The successful
candidate would be expected to take up the position as soon as
possible. The position is at the rank of "Wissenschaftlicher
Mitarbeiter" (salary on the German payscale of BAT IIa; minimum of
65 000 DM per year).

Applications should include CV and an outline of research experience
and interests. Names and addresses of references would be helpful.
Applications should be sent by mail or email to the address below.

Applications received by July 15th, 1995 will receive full
consideration.
