Chair in Formal Linguistics at UMIST

Applications are invited for a Chair in Formal Linguistics in the
Department of Language and Linguistics at UMIST (The University of
Manchester Institute of Science and Technology).

With 15 academic staff and 12 externally funded research staff, the
Department has established a reputation as a leading centre for
multilingual natural language engineering, especially machine
translation, terminology and lexical databases, computer-assisted
language learning and human-computer interfaces.

The Department welcomes applications from candidates in any area of
linguistics, though a strong preference will be given to individuals
with an interest in formal linguistic description and with
substantial research experience in the field. Though the person
appointed is not required to have experience in computational
applications of linguistic theories, a strong interest in this area
will be an asset. A working knowledge of a second modern language is
also desirable.

Commencing salary for the Chair will be within the professorial range,
minimum: 30938 sterling per annum. UMIST is an equal opportunity

Requests for application forms and further details, quoting reference
LL/A/77, should be sent to: The Personnel Office, UMIST, PO Box 88,
Manchester, M60 1QD, Great Britain. Completed applications should be
returned by 17 June 1994. [Please don't mail the sender of this
notice for information!]
