The School of Languages and European Studies at the University of
Wolverhampton wishes to appoint a Research Fellow to work on the 
EU Framework IV Language Engineering Project SELECT - a high-profile
international Telematics project involving Klett in Germany, Giunti in
Italy and the University of Poitiers in France. The Research Fellow's
responsibilities will focus on the development of the "Language
Learner's Workbench" (LLW). The aim of the LLW is to develop 
an electronic resource-based tool which will assist business users to
learn and use foreign languages. The tool will involve working with
material in French, English and Portuguese. It will also give the user
access to Web-based and intranet-based language learning material. The
LLW will be developed in collaboration with IAI, Saarbruecken and OFAI, 
Vienna. For more information on the LLW and SELECT, visit
http://www/wlv.ac.uk/sles/select

We are looking for researchers with proven experience in NLP and Corpus
Linguistics and with programming skills. Candidates should preferably
have a knowledge of one of the target foreign languages and fluency in
English. The successful candidate may apply to be registered for a
higher degree on a part-time basis.

For further information about the project, please contact Prof. Stephen
Hagen (s.g.hagenwlv.ac.uk) and for specific information about the
Language Learner's Workbench - Prof. Ruslan Mitkov (R.Mitkovwlv.ac.uk)
