Subject: Another job at Manchester

Greetings again fellow humanists.

The Department of Computer Science is undertaking a research
project in conjunction with the University's Enterprise in Higher
Education initiative to develop computer-based learning (CBL)
courseware for problem oriented learning specifically aimed at teaching
from case studies in information systems design.

We are looking for someone to help us set-out a research agenda in the
Department to support computer-based learning, and to strengthen our
existing relationships with publishers, and to forge new ones.

Applicants should have a good honours or postgraduate degree
preferably in education, cognitive science, or a related field, but we will
consider applicants with degrees in other fields who have relevant work
experience. Experience in one or more of the following areas would be
advantageous: authoring tools, learning strategies and producing CBL
courseware. There would be opportunities to register for a higher degree.

The period of contract would be nine months in the first instance,
tenable from 1st January 1994. The post is possibly renewable in September

Salary will be on Grade 1b in the range 12828-14396 pro-rata for
nine months initially.

Subject: Lectureship at Manchester

Fellow Humanists:

It might at first appear odd to post an announcement for a lectureship in
computer science on the Humanist Discussion, but I want to ensure that
people in the computational linguistics, advanced text processing, and
information systems (including multi-media information systems), communities
are fully aware that there is a possible teaching and research opportunity
for them at this department.

This is a large and open-minded department, which defines computer science
in the broadest possible context: we have about 55 academic staff and about
65 full time researchers, and some of the strongest research facilities in
Europe. We are a very diverse group: on my corridor alone, two people have
medical degrees, one is a psychologist, there are two computer scientists,
and then there is yours truly with degrees in American Intellectual
History (I teach systems analysis and design as well as organizational
behavior). Around the corner you'll find a PhD in philosohy, computational
linguistics, physics. As with any CS Department, most of our teaching staff
have CS or Mathematics degrees. If you have the background and experience
where you feel that you can make a real contribution to Computer Science,
both in teaching and in research, please feel free to contact us.

I personally feel that we need people in the areas of advanced text
processing, information systems design, advanced networking,
computational linguistics and cognitive science. My colleagues may feel
otherwise when decision-time comes, but don't select yourself out if you
think you might have the right background and experience. We are serious
when we say that we are looking for quality, not for a specific subject area.

Please send me some email if you'd like more information. My address is
rich@cs.man.ac.uk. You can call me at work at +44 61 275-6266, but remember
that Manchester is 5 hours ahead of New York.

By the way, I'm American (having been here now for three years), so I'll be
happy to answer any questions about living in England or Manchester for my
