Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.org>


The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Description:

The University of Potsdam invites applications for the post of Full
Professor (W3) in Theoretical Computational Linguistics. Theoretical
Computational Linguistics at Potsdam plays an important role in connecting
theoretical linguistics, clinical and psycholinguistics and computational
linguistics. The ideal candidate will have expertise in one or more of
these areas:

- Grammar formalisms and (probabilistic) parsing of natural language
- machine learning techniques for language processing
- computational semantics

Knowledge of symbolic and/or statistical methods and corpus-based methods
is presupposed. The research profile of the candidate should fit into the
interdisciplinary nature of the Excellence Center for Cognitive Sciences at
Potsdam (http://www.uni-potsdam.de/humfak/hum-exzellenzbereich.html).
Participation is expected in the Collaborative Research Project
(Sonderforschungsbereich 632), Information Structure: the linguistic means
for structuring utterances, sentences and texts (see:
http://www.sfb632.uni-potsdam.de/main.html), and in other projects related
to cognitive science. Experience in obtaining third-party funding and an
international presence is desirable.

The University of Potsdam is an Equal Opportunity employer and is actively
engaged in increasing the proportion of women in research and teaching;
qualified women are therefore encouraged to apply. All other things being
equal, handicapped candidates will be given preference.
