Professor/Reader in Computational Linguistics (permanent post) -
Ref: A5966. Salary range: Professor £57,758 - £65,154, Reader
£47,314 - £54,826
Deadline for applications: 27 May 2013.
The Research Institute in Information and Language Processing at
University of Wolverhampton seeks to appoint a Professor or
Reader in Computational Linguistics. We are very keen to hear
from outstanding individuals.
Since its inception, the Research Group in Computational
Linguistics (http://clg.wlv.ac.uk) has become an international
leader in applied NLP and has been very successful in securing
funding from highly competitive sources. This has enabled members
of the Group to make important contributions to different areas
of NLP and computational linguistics. The results from the
Research Assessment Exercise announced in December 2008 confirmed
the Research Group in Computational Linguistics as one of the top
performers in UK research. The research output of the group has
been rated as internationally leading, internationally excellent
and internationally recognized. Computational Linguistics was
entered in Unit of Assessment "Linguistics" and Wolverhampton was
ranked joint 3rd with 2 more universities. According to the
league tables of the Guardian, The Times and Research Fortnight,
research in Linguistics at the University of Wolverhampton is one
of the top 6 best in the UK.
The group is seeking to recruit a Professor or Reader to
contribute to the further development of this area of our
activity by producing research that is internationally
acknowledged to be of the highest standard, to offer excellent
research supervision and teaching in the interdisciplinary areas
of natural language processing and computational linguistics and
to deliver cutting-edge practical applications (including
commercial applications) to the benefit of society based on its
research output. The proposed development will underpin our
teaching on the prestigious International Erasmus Mundus Master
Programme in NLP&HLT. The new professor (or reader) would come at
the right time to support the new and successful Marie Curie ITN
FP7-funded project EXPERT where the group will be involved in
additional supervision of PhD students and early career
researchers. The new professor (or reader) will have a
significant impact on our income generation activities.
It is anticipated that an experienced research fellow and PhD
student will be appointed in due course to support this post.
Remuneration packages may include research expenses and support
posts and PhD Studentships may be available in certain cases.
Further information can be obtained from Professor Ruslan Mitkov
at the contact email address below.
