Vacancy Reference No: 3003251

The aim of this ONR-funded project is to create a toolset to aid in
the development of a wide-coverage parser for deep parsing and
semantic interpretation. You will develop tools to facilitate
extensions to the lexicon based on existing wide-coverage
dictionaries, and devise algorithms for efficient parsing and robust
interpretation. Ideally you will have skills in grammar development,
lexical semantics, and semantic interpretation.  Knowledge of NLU and
parsing technologies is essential. Experience in statistical parsing
techniques is desirable.  Good programming skills in Lisp, Java, Perl,
and experience with XML are also highly desirable.

The appointment has an initial fixed duration of up to 3 years, with
opportunities for continuation, and is expected to start January 1st
2005, or shortly thereafter.
Salary Scale: GBP 19,460 to 29,128
