Apologies for cross-posting...

 * LCG TMR Network *
 * Learning Computational Grammars *

LCG (Learning Computational Grammars) is a research network funded by
the EC Training and Mobility of Researchers programme (TMR).

The LCG network involves seven European partners. The research goal
of the network is to use machine learning techniques to extend a
variety of computational grammars. The particular focus of XRCE's
research will be on the integration of explicit grammatical knowledge
with example-based evidence, such as a set of stored analyses in data
oriented parsing, for example.

See for more details.

Up to three years of pre- or postdoctoral funding are available at
XRCE, starting immediately. The ideal candidate will have research
experience or strong interest in NLP and machine learning (including
statistical techniques).

As the funding is provided by the EU Training and Mobility of
researchers programme there are some restrictions on who may benefit
from it:

* Candidates must be aged 35 or younger 
* Candidates must be Nationals of an EU country, Norway, Iceland,
 Switzerland or Israel
* Candidates must have studied or be studying for a Doctoral Degree 
* Candidates cannot be French Nationals
* Candidates cannot have worked in France more than 18 of the last 24

If you are interested and eligible, e-mail your CV and the names and
addresses of two referees to the address below. Your CV should
include a list of recent publications. Please also outline in 2-3
pages your interest in LCG, how it is related to work you have done,
and any special expertise you bring to the problem.
