The Computer Research Group at Los Alamos National Laboratory invites
applications for postdoctoral positions in computational linguistics,
including: speech recognition, speech synthesis, corpus linguistics,
computer user interfaces, and natural language modeling. Applications
are accepted on a year-round basis and are evaluated quarterly. The
main evaluation criterion is the applicant's research potential, as
judged by letters and publications, although programming experience is
also highly desirable. You must have received your Ph.D. within the
last three years, and it must be in hand when you start the
fellowship. For further information contact speechlanl.gov or
