Organization: Universitaet Tuebingen



We are advertising two research positions in the VERBMOBIL project,
which is funded by the German Ministry for Education and Research
(BMBF). VERBMOBIL is concerned with the development of a portable
speech-to-speech translation system for "face-to-face"-communication.

The VERBMOBIL subproject at the Department of Computational
Linguistics in Tuebingen includes the following two tasks:

- Finite State Parsing and Chunk Parsing

- German-to-English translations of VERBMOBIL spoken-language
      dialogues, manual and automatic alignment of German/English
      bilingual corpora and the construction of a tree bank for the
      English VERBMOBIL corpus.

There is one research position to be filled for each of the two tasks.

Candidates for the position in finite state parsing and chunk parsing
should have extensive programming experience in C and/or C++, should be
thoroughly familiar with the theory and implementation of finite state
automata, finite state transducers and robust parsing techniques, and
would be expected to contribute to the implementation of a working
subsystem of VERBMOBIL in collaboration with other VERBMOBIL sites.

Candidates for the position in dialogue translation, corpus alignment
and tree bank construction should have native or near-native
competence in English, have research experience in English syntax, and
be familiar with alignment techniques for bilingual corpora.
Knowledge of German is highly desirable.

The second phase of the VERBMOBIL project started in January 1997.
Funding is guaranteed until December 1998. Contingent on a successful
midterm review, funding is expected to be extended until December
2000. Successful candidates would be expected to take up the
positions as soon as possible. The positions are at the rank of
"Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter" (salary on the German payscale of
BAT IIa; minimum of 65 000 DM per year).

Applications should include CV and an outline of research experience
and interests. Names and addresses of references would be helpful.
Applications should be sent by mail or email to the address below.

Validation of an extended ANSI-C compiler for a fixed-point DSP

Related group activities

We are currently defining an extended ANSI-C syntax for efficient
support of a fixed-point DSP, and are working on a compiler that
parses the extended syntax and generates optimized fixed-point

Validation of the compiler will be performed with modified
standard compiler test suits, as well as with custom code.

Student project description

We are seeking a graduate EE/ICS student to participate in
defining the validation process for the extended C compiler
for the target DSP, and to participate in the validation
process itself.

The student will familiarize himself with a state of the art DSP,
the problems of fixed-point arithmetics and the targeted
language extensions.

He will then proceed to define a methodology for incorporating our
syntax into existing test suites in such a way that extensive
testing of our compiler for our DSP becomes possible. He will
participate in generating the extended test suite, and in the
testing itself.


- graduate student in EE/ICS
- excellent knowledge of ANSI-C
- experience with compiler validation
- good understanding of binary arithmetics
- good English

- interest in DSPs
- interest in programming languages
- interest in compiler design

TakeFive Software ( is one of the leading
large scale programming environment providers. Based on our open
architecture it is easy to support new languages.
We are currently looking for people who are interested in implementing
parsers. These parsers extract complete symbolic information from the
source code and store it via a library provided by us into our symbol

We are interested in many languages. Two we are especially keen on are
TCL and Perl. But if you have any other parsers at hand that you would
like to instrument for Sniff we would gladly support and/or pay you
for your effort. A precondition is that these parsers are portable
(Windows 95/NT and a wide range of Unix Operating systems).

We can imagine to cooperate with companies, professionals, or students
with sound compiler building background.

I am looking forward to hear from you
