The teaching duties will be concentrated on

contribute to research, including grant
proposals, and will be asked to assume a share of
organizational tasks, e.g. recruitment,
communication or software/hardware support.


A Ph.D. degree in (Computational) Linguistics or
a related field such as Linguistics, Computer
Science, or Artificial Intelligence.
Proven research ability documented by publications.
Proven interest and success in computational and
statistical studies is a must.
Ability to work independently and interest in interdisciplinary research.
Willingness to learn Dutch and to locate in Groningen.

3129 tot a maximum of € 4284,- (Salary scale 11)
for the full-time position. Commencement of
