    SPIRIT is a 36-month EU funded partner project investigating the
    applications of geographical information systems (GIS) to enhance
    text-based information retrieval (IR) systems. Sheffield's part in the
    project is to adapt an existing text retrieval system to search a 1Tb Web
    collection using a cluster of co-ordinated Unix/Linux machines (probably a
    Beowulf cluster); find means of evaluating the accuracy of the searching
    system; and integrate GIS information into the text searching system. The
    successful candidate should have either a postgraduate degree with
    experience in GIS or IR; strong undergraduate students with a Computer
    Science degree interested in pursuing a PhD should also apply.
