Two-Year Lecturer Position (Universitaire Docent)

The department of Humanities Computing (Alfa-Informatica) at the University of Groningen is seeking a temporary:

Lecturer (Universitair Docent)

Full-time position for two years

Vacancy number: 208018

The department is focused on computational linguistics, especially in syntactic and phonological processing, and would most like to strenghten this focus by attracting researchers in computational linguistics with specializations complementary to those of the current staff, e.g. text sentiment analysis, historical linguistics, text authoring tools, or computer-supported language learning. We are willing to consider other, similar specializations.

The teaching duties will be concentrated on language processing and statistics. The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to research, including grant proposals, and will be asked to assume a share of organizational tasks, e.g. recruitment, communication or software/hardware support.


Terms and Conditions of Employment

The salary for a lecturer ranges form a initial € 3129 tot a maximum of € 4284,- (Salary scale 11) for the full-time position. Commencement of employment is August 2008. The duration of contract is for two years. Pending further funding, we may be able to continue the position for two more years.
