Faculty Opening

Stanford Universitys Departments of Linguistics and Computer Science
seek applicants for a tenure-track faculty position in areas combining
linguistics and computation. Candidates will be expected to show breadth
and depth in both areas and to demonstrate the ability to make an
intellectual contribution to both linguistics and computer science.
Example topics of interest include, but are not limited to, natural
language dialog processing and understanding, development and evaluation
of linguistic methods using large speech and text databases, speech
recognition, computational modeling of cognitive processing of language,
lexical knowledge bases, symbolic and statistical methods of language
processing, and linguistic knowledge representation. Interest in an
application area, such as information retrieval, data mining, or web
services is desirable. Higher priority will be given to the innovation
and promise of the candidates work than to any of these specific topics
and applications.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a relevant field. Evidence of the
ability to pursue a research program and a strong commitment to graduate
and undergraduate teaching are required. The successful candidate will
be expected to teach courses, both in the candidates specialty area and
in related subjects, at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and to
build and lead a team of graduate students in Ph.D. research.

The appointment will be made at the level of an Assistant Professor.
The position is available beginning Autumn 1999 and is offered jointly
in the Linguistics and Computer Science Departments. Further
information about these departments can be found at
http://www-linguistics.stanford.edu and http://www-cs.stanford.edu,
respectively.

Applications should include a curriculum vita, statements of research
and teaching interests and the names of five references. The
application should be sent to:

Professor John Mitchell, Search Committee Chair
c/o Laura Kenny-Carlson
Computer Science Department
Stanford University
Gates 2B
Stanford, CA 94305-9025

The interview process will begin on January 15, 1999, but applications
will be accepted until February 15, 1999. Stanford University is an
equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from women and
minority candidates.
