lectureship in cognitive science

To Dan: thanks, and all the best for the auditory list.
To the list: a job possibility


                  University of Sheffield, UK.

Applications are invited for the above post tenable from 1st October
1993 for three years in the first instance but with expectation of
renewal. Preference will be given to candidates with a PhD in
Cognitive Science, Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Psychology,
Computer Science, Robotics, or related disciplines.

The Cognitive Science degree is an integrated course taught by the
departments of Psychology and Computer Science. Research in Cognitive
Science was highly evaluated in the recent UFC research evaluation
exercise, special areas of interest  being vision, speech, language,
neural networks, and learning. The successful candidate will be
expected to undertake research vigorously. Supervision of programming
projects will be required, hence considerable experience with Lisp,
Prolog, and/or C is essential.

It is expected that the appointment will be made on the Lecturer A
scale (13,400-18,576 pounds(uk) p.a.) according to age and experience
but enquiries from more experienced staff able to bring research
resources are welcomed.

Informal enquiries to Professor John P Frisby 044-(0)742-826538 or
e-mail jpf@aivru.sheffield.ac.uk.  Further particulars from the
director of Personnel Services, The University, Sheffield S10 2TN,
UK, to whom all applications including a cv and the names and
addresses of three referees (6 copies of all documents) should be
sent by 1 April 1993.

Short-listed candidates will be invited to Sheffield for interview
for which travel expenses (within the UK only) will be funded.
