    Dear Corpora Subscribers,

    My colleagues and I would appreciate you circulating this mail to students
    and others who might be interested in the position offered below.


    Research Position at Chemnitz University of Technology.

    We, at the English Department at TU Chemnitz, are in the process of
    establishing a reputation as specialists in the field of On-line Learning
    and we're in search of young, talented and motivated graduates to help us
    achieve this goal.
    Our current projects encompass the fields of computational linguistics,
    corpus linguistics, natural language processing, applied linguistics, and
    second-language acquisition, not to mention the issues of Internet
    Programming and Multimedia User-Interface Design attendant upon the creation
    of a top-class, multi-functional E-Learning System.

    We want your skills, ideas, and enthusiasm. In return we offer you the
    benefits of gaining experience as a functional member of a research team,
    the opportunity to hone your specialisations, extend your knowledge and
    expand your skills.
    The position will be for one year initially, with the possibility of
    continuing with an extended contract. We hope that you will be able to
    complete a PhD thesis (or research monograph) in the area of language
    acquisition, contrastive grammar, web-learning, etc. Payment will be on the
    Bat IIa/2 (Ost) scale and the salary level dependent on age and experience.

    You will have a "masters" degree in a relevant subject. You should also have
    a strong interest in the use of the Web and Corpora for language teaching
    and learning. The working language of the research team is English, so
    fluency would be a definite advantage (if you are not a native speaker). You
    must show the capacity for developing ideas and the skills to see them
    To this end, we would like you to send us not only your CV, but a copy of
    your M.A./M.Sc (or equivalent) thesis and a Covering Letter in which you
    describe how you think you could add to our research projects and goals.

    Here are examples of our current and recent projects:
    Chemnitz Internet Grammar:
    Lampeter Corpus:
    East-African Corpus:
