you must have a sense of intellectual adventure and feel comfortable
using computer tools for language analysis. You are able to publish in
English and have excellent knowledge of at least one of the Centre's

Greek, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish. You will
co-supervise PhD students.

Interviews will probably take place on 14 and 15 November 2002.
