A few temporary sabbatical research positions may be available starting in the interval May 2005 - March 2006 in the Research Group on Mathematical Linguistics at Rovira i Virgili University (Tarragona, Spain).

The web site of the group is:

http://www.grlmc.com or http://pizarro.fll.urv.es/continguts/linguistica/proyecto/grlmc.htm

The eligible topics for them are the group's current or future research directions:

- Formal language theory and its applications.
- Bioinformatics.
- Nanoscience and nanotechnology (in connection with biomolecular computing).
- Language and speech technologies.
- Language acquisition.
- Computational neuroscience.

This list is not exhaustive, so that other connected fields might still be eligible provided there exists a strong enough candidate.

All the positions will be filled in under the form of a scholarship (rather than a work contract).

There are two tracks:

Track A:

- PhD degree obtained earlier than 1999,
- not having occupied any sabbatical position in Spain since 1999,
- duration: 3-12 months,
- monthly salary: in the interval 2112-3100 euros, likely in the highest part of the interval (depending on merits and before taxes; for the citizens of most countries an inter-countries agreement for avoiding double taxation will be applied, what involves that in most cases the mentioned salary will not be taxed in Spain),
- travel grant of up to 3000 euros,
- health insurance for the researcher and her/his family.

Track B:

- PhD degree obtained later than 1998,
- not having occupied any sabbatical position in Spain in the past,
- duration: 9-18 months,
- monthly salary: in the interval 1300-2350 euros, likely in the highest part of the interval (depending on merits and before taxes; for the citizens of most countries an agreement for avoiding double taxation will be applied, what involves that in most cases the mentioned salary will not be taxed in Spain),
- travel grant of up to 3000 euros,
- health insurance for the researcher and her/his family.

Expressions of interest for any of the tracks are welcome until October 10, 2004. A preselection will be done then. The application process will take place later.
