With funding from an NSF Learning and Intelligent Systems grant, the

Particularly encouraged to apply are candidates who combine research

formal/computational modeling.

The appointment will initially be made for one year, with the
possibility of renewal for an additional year. The first year's
salary will be in the low to mid $20K's.

Interested applicants should send a statement of interests and a CV to
the following address:

recommendation to this address. To guarantee full consideration,
materials should be received by April 21st.

 March 25, 1998

Columbia is looking for a Director of the Language Resource Center, a
new entity being financed in part by a grant from Mellon Foundation.
The Director will also have responsibility for the Media Support
Center, which functions as the Columbia language laboratory, the Music
Humanities Listening Facility, and the facility where students in Film
Studies can find videotapes for viewing. The position is available
effective July 1, 1998.

Initially the Language Resource Center will be located on the 100
level of Lewisohn Hall, though it is expected that within a year or
two the Center will move to new facilities adjacent to the Lehman
Library in the School of International and Public Affairs where new
language laboratory facilities will also be relocated.

As Chair of the Search Committee, I want to make every effort to be
sure that qualified and interested persons both within Columbia and
without know of the position which has been advertised in the New York
Times and the Chronicle for Higher Education. Please ask any
interested persons to submit their resume no later than mid-April,
1998. Applications should be sent to:

 Director, Language Resource Center Search
 Dean's Office, Continuing Education & Special Programs
 Columbia University
 2970 Broadway
 303 Lewisohn Hall -- Mailcode 4110
 New York, NY 10027

I would appreciate your passing along a copy of this letter with its
attached job description to language faculty or anyone else of whom
you may know who might be interested.
