The Computational Semantics Laboratory at Stanford's Center for the
Study of Language and Information (CSLI), Stanford University, is
seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to work on multimodal dialogue
systems, starting from April of 2003 or as soon as possible
thereafter. The position is initially for 1 year, optionally renewable
for up to 3 years, and carries a starting salary in a range of
$60,000-70,000, depending on experience. Candidates who may be more
appropriate for a more senior appointment are welcome to contact us
about their interest.

Applicants should have a demonstrated capacity to conduct research.
The ideal candidate will have experience in dialogue system design
with a grounding in theoretical foundations of NLP and dialogue
systems, and an interest in coupling spoken and gestural
communication.  The candidate should hold, or be about to receive, a
Ph.D. in computational linguistics, cognitive science, AI, or a
related field.  Strong programming skills, preferably involving Java,
are desirable.

The researcher will work with faculty, postdoctoral, and student
researchers at CSLI to develop core infrastructure for natural
multimodal conversational systems for a range of interactions and
applications. Current applications include command and control of UAVs
and intelligent devices (see www-csli.stanford.edu/semlab/witas) and
intelligent tutoring systems (see www-csli.stanford.edu/semlab/muri).

Please contact Stanley Peters and Lawrence Cavedon
<peters,lcavedon at csli.stanford.edu> for further details. Applicants
should submit a letter of application and a full resume or curriculum
vitae with names and email addresses of at least three references.

Research interests in the Computational Semantics Lab include dialogue
modeling, corpus-based semantic analysis, information retrieval,
intelligent tutoring systems, formal logic, parsing technologies,
intelligent agents and multi-agent systems, and theoretical
linguistics. The group consists of approximately twelve people.  See
www-csli.stanford.edu/semlab/ for details of current and prior
