"Automatic Adaptation of Knowledge Structures for Assisted Information 
Seeking" (AutoAdapt) research project (http://www.autoadaptproject.org) 
funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council

Robert Gordon University Aberdeen (RGU) which started in November 2008. 
The project develops and evaluates methods that allow the automatic

language processing (NLP) skills with a strong programming background. 
Candidates should be graduates of computer science, information systems 
or computational linguistics and be in possession of a good postgraduate 
degree or equivalent experience in IR or NLP. The successful candidate 
will work closely with the two investigators and our partners at the OU 
and RGU.

as possible thereafter until 31 October 2011.
