Message 2: English and computational linguistics at U. Lille

Date: Tue, 20 Oct 1998 18:19:11 +0100
From: Philip Miller <pmillerulb.ac.be>
Subject: English and computational linguistics at U. Lille

The department of English at the University of Lille 3, France, will
be seeking to fill several positions in English linguistics and
computational linguistics starting in September 1999. The official
application process requires candidates to file a first set of forms
before November 16 1998. One of these positions will be at the level
of professor, the others at the level of "maitre de conferences" (more
or less equivalent of assistant professor in the US; requires a
PhD). All of these are tenure track positions

We are seeking candidates specializing in
-Phonetics and phonology of English
-Syntax and semantics of English
-Computational linguistics applied to English

We expect candidates who are not familiar with the nongenerative
frameworks currently in use in France to gain sufficient understanding
of these frameworks to be able to situate their research with respect
to them and to take into account the familiarity of students with
these frameworks.

Lille 3 has a very good local linguistics research environment
including the CNRS funded research group SILEX (Syntaxe,
Interpretation, Lexique) and a phonetics laboratory. Lille is also
one hour from Paris and two hours from London by high speed
train. Belgium and the Netherlands are also easy to get to by rail or
road.

Knowledge of French is necessary, though part of the teaching
can be done in English.

Please write to Philip Miller (milleruniv-lille3.fr) for more information
on the nature of the positions, the research environment, and the
application procedure.
