The Centre for Translation Studies, University of Leeds, UK, is inviting
applications for a Research Fellow post to work on a research project
funded by an FP7 grant from the European Commission. It is a full-time,
fixed term position to be filled as soon as possible, lasting until
31 Dec 2012.

We're interested in a candidate with a PhD in Computational linguistics
or Machine Learning and experience in designing ML algorithms for text
categorisation tasks. For a formal application, take a look at the job

I will be attending ACL2010 in Uppsala and SIGIR2010 in Geneva, so feel
free to contact me there informally.

Closing date for applications: 03 August 2010
Salary: Grade 7 (£29,853 - £35,646 p.a)
It is likely that an appointment will be made at or below £30,747 p.a.
since there are funding limitations which dictate the level at which the
appointment can start.
