Two research associate posts are available in the Natural Language research
group from January 1995. These posts are associated with a grant from the
UK Engineering and Physical Science Research Council on 'Large Scale
Information Extraction from Text'. Both appointments will be for 36 months.

Post 1: The candidate will be involved in the development of a general
architecture for text extraction (GATE) which will support the integration,
testing, and enhancement of existing language processing components to produce
evaluable information extraction systems. The candidate should have a strong
background in computational linguistics or artificial intelligence, including
good programming skills, and should have a PhD or equivalent research
experience in a relevant area. The post will be on the UK RA1A scale, with a
starting salary of around 15K pounds p/a.

Post 2: The candidate will be required to liaise with UK and international
research sites to obtain, install and evaluate language processing components,
corpora, and lexical resources in the context of GATE. The candidate should
have a good degree in computer science or related area, with knowledge of
computational linguistics and should have good Unix/Internet skills. The post
will be on the UK RA1B scale, with a starting salary of around 13K pounds p/a.
The candidate may have the opportunity to register for a PhD.
