                Research Funding in Computational Linguistics:
            Postgraduate and Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowships in
                  Computing and Language (French or German)

    The Centre for Computing and Language Studies, at Trinity College,
    University of Dublin, is pleased to announce the availability of two
    postgraduate teaching fellowships funded by The Senior Lecturer's
    Broad Curriculum Initiative. The two three-year positions are open to
    senior postgraduate research students who will contribute to small
    group teaching within the Moderatorship in Computer Science,
    Linguistics and a Language, while pursuing research towards a Ph.D.
    Therefore, candidates must be of an excellent standard in either
    French or German, and in computing. Applications from qualified
    native (and near-native) French and German speakers with an excellent
    standard of English are quite welcome.

    Specifically, the postgraduate teaching fellows will contribute to a
    first year undergraduate module which is an introduction to
    programming through the programming language, JAVA. This is one
    strand of the first year computing component of the degree. Within
    small group settings, second (natural) language skills will be
    developed at the same time as programming concepts and techniques.

    The research field is open; however, it should fall within
    computational linguistics, broadly construed, and within the interests
    of potential supervisors within Trinity College.

    It is also possible for suitably qualified candidates to assume one of
    the positions as a part-time Post-doctoral Teaching Fellow. Similar
    constraints on research area apply.

    For an overview of the undergraduate degree involved, use the following

          Applicants for the Postgraduate Teaching Fellowships should either
          already be enrolled as postgraduate students at Trinity College,
          University of Dublin, or should provide evidence of a Master's
          degree in an appropriate discipline and should file an application
          for supervised postgraduate study at Trinity College via the
          Graduate Studies Office by August 10, 2001. Refer to the College
          web pages (http://www.tcd.ie/Graduate_Studies/index.html) for
          information on how to apply for postgraduate study.

    Conditions of Studentships

          As part of their training in pedagogy, successful applicants will
          engage in a maximum of six hours per week of undergraduate small
          group teaching, during teaching terms.

          The studentship ceases to be tenable when the recipient ceases to
          be a registered postgraduate student. In the event of this
          happening, the studentship may be converted to a part-time
          Post-doctoral Teaching Fellowship.

    Award Period

          The award period is for a maximum of 3 years.

    Value of Studentship

          The value of the Postgraduate Teaching Studentship will be a
          stipend of 18,000 euros per annum, rising by 1,000 euros per annum
          in each subsequent year, plus fee remission at the level of EU
          postgraduate student rate. The difference in fees from EU rates
          for non-EU candidates will not be supplemented. The stipend is
          not subject to payroll taxes.

    Value of (Part-Time) Post-doctoral Teaching Fellowship

          The holder of a part-time Post-doctoral Teaching Fellowship will
          be remunerated at the level of 16,071 euros per annum, rising by
          894 euros per annum, and will be subject to income tax and PRSI.

    Application Process

          Full consideration for applications to the Postgraduate Teaching
          Fellowships (or part-time Post-doctoral Teaching Fellowship) can
          be guaranteed only for those applications which arrive by August
          24, 2001.

          Applications for the Fellowships should consist of the following:

            0) A research proposal with a nominated supervisor in TCD

            1) A curriculum vitae

            2) Report of academic progress to date

            3) Evidence of expertise in JAVA programming

            4) Evidence of fluency in French or German

            5) Documentation of teaching experience

            6) Details, particularly email addresses, of nominated
                referees (or, preferably, directly sent letters of

          Applications should be posted to:
