TEI Community Initiative Grants
Proposals Due 15 December 2011
Total Call: $4,000

The TEI Board is delighted to announce a call for Community Initiative 
Grants. Proposed projects proposed should support and promote the goals 
of the TEI and should be carried out within one year of the date of the 
award.

Applications will be adjudicated according to the following criteria:

Ø  * excellence of the proposal;

Ø  * contribution of the activity to the promotion and development of 
the TEI;

Ø  * track record of individuals or group proposing the activity;

Ø  * deliverables which are realistic and can be accomplished within the 
budget and time period proposed.

Although there is no upper amount for any individual proposal, 
applicants should bear in mind that the total amount for this grant call 
is $4,000.

Proposals should be no longer than three pages (ca. 750 words) and 
should contain the following information:

1. Name and contact details of proposer
2. Name of organization (if the proposal is being submitted on behalf of 
a TEI SIG or other organistion)
3. Narrative addressing the criteria above.
4. Amount requested. Please indicate if it would be possible to carry 
out the activity with less funding, and if so, how that would change the 
nature of the proposal.
5. Date for final report

Please send submissions to Susan Schreibman susan.schreibman AT 
gmail.com by 15 December 2011

Doctoral and post-doctoral scholarships in Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing

Computational Linguistics Group, University of Haifa, Israel
http://cl.haifa.ac.il/

Two fully-funded research positions are available.

1. Grammar engineering

You will develop and implement mechanisms for grammar engineering that will facilitate collaborative grammar development, including facilities for modularization, abstraction and information encapsulation. The framework is based on typed unification grammars, and is aimed to support the development of large-scale HPSG grammars.

The ideal candidate should:
- have a solid background in computer science, with excellent programming skills
- be familiar with contemporary syntactic theories, ideally HPSG
- be creative, innovative and hard-working
- possess excellent communication skills, both oral and written (in English).

2. Machine translation, machine learning and text categorization

You will develop classifiers that can distinguish between original and translated texts, and use such information to improve the quality of machine translation. 

The ideal candidate should:
- have a solid background in computer science, with excellent programming skills
- be familiar with statistical machine translation and machine-learning-based text categorization
- be creative, innovative and hard-working
- possess excellent communication skills, both oral and written (in English).

Post-doctoral scholarships require a PhD in hand (or about to be conferred). They are for one year, with very likely extension to a second (and maybe a third) year. Candidates should demonstrate a promising track record of publications. Doctoral scholarships require a Masters degree in Computer Science or a closely-related area. They are for three to four years.

To apply, please e-mail an updated CV, with the names and contact details of at least three references, to Shuly Wintner (shuly at cs.haifa.ac.il). Further documentation (e.g., transcripts of previous studies) may be needed at a later stage. While there is no firm deadline, we expect to fill these positions as soon as possible. For any inquiries on these positions please contact Shuly Wintner by e-mail.

Call for Applications, Neukom Fellows at Dartmouth College

The Neukom Institute for Computational Science is pleased to announce the inaugural Neukom Fellows competition. Neukom Fellows are designed as explicitly interdisciplinary positions for recent Ph.D.s whose research interests cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries, but hassome computational component, whether it be a framing concept for intellectual exploration or an explicit component of the work that is pursued. The successful candidate should be interested in and, in the best case have a history of collaborative work across disciplines, but still show good evidence of independence and initiative. The Fellowships are two- to three-year appointments, with the third year extension considered upon request after areview early in the second year.  Neukom Fellows will be mentored by faculty in two departments at Dartmouth College, take up residence in one department, and will teach one seminar course eachyear on a subject of their interest. There is a possibility of additional teaching if that is desirable on the part of the candidate. Beyond that there are no additional duties. Neukom Fellow stipends are $60,000 for 2012-2013.Some additional funds are available for equipment, travel, and research materials.

Requirements:

1. Ph.D. in any discipline (or expected Ph.D. by September 2012). 2. Research interests that strongly intersect the theme of computation. 3. A proven ability to work independently and collaboratively 4. A demonstrated interest in multidisciplinary research. 5. Evidence of the ability to think outside traditional paradigms.

Application Materials:

Interested candidates must submit the following:

1. Curriculum vitae (including publications list).?2. Statement of research interests (max. 2 pages) including a short description of the research you would like to pursue and why.?3. Description of which departments (and even better, which Dartmouth faculty) you would be interested in working with and why the opportunity toengage with multiple departments would enhance your work. 4. Three referees who can write on your behalf to the aims of the Fellowship. 5. (Optional) A copy of one paper you have written in English, either published or unpublished.

To apply:

Completed applications received by December 1, 2011 will get first consideration. Materials received after that date stand the chance of not being considered. Applications from women and minorities are encouraged. Dartmouth College is an equal opportunity employer.
