(1/2 TVL 13, approx. € 17,500 to € 25,000 p.a. gross)
reference number A 175/06
The research project I5-[DiaSpace] is seeking a researcher in the area of natural language dialogue.
The researcher will develop approaches to natural and effective verbal interaction between agents
(both human and artificial) who jointly address spatially-embedded tasks. The researcher will give
particular emphasis to the mutual negotiation of spatial reference frames, spatial perspectives, scale
and granularity choices, and corresponding discourse strategies. The successful applicant will work
primarily with empirical methods of linguistic, discourse-analytic and psycholinguistic investigation of
dialogue in the spatial domain in order to help establish the mechanisms active in establishing natural
dialogue flow in increasingly complex tasks. Since the results are gradually integrated in a flexible
dialogue system enabling robots to interact naturally with humans, the successful applicant will also
need to interact closely with computational dialogue modeling colleagues. The detailed work plan is
specified in the project proposal.
Applicants should have a degree in linguistics or in a related field (diploma, MA, or Ph.D.). Especially,
applicants should have qualifications and/or interests in one or more of the following fields:
• Empirical discourse analysis
• Experimental data collection and transcription
• Spatial language and spatial cognition
• Human-robot / human-computer interaction
• Computer-based data handling, including particularly basic skills in XML and corpus
annotation.
We offer the opportunity to gain research experience in a modern and enthusiastic research
environment with strong interdisciplinary and international links. Responsibilities include project work
and research, publication of research results, supervision of student projects, participation in the
activities of the SFB/TR 8, and contribution to research proposals.

deadline: 15 December 2006 (or until a suitable candidate is found). Universität Bremen is an equal
