Subject: Palo Alto, CA: Xerox Parc: Researchers in Scientific and Engineering Reasoning 

The Scientific and Engineering Reasoning Area (SERA) in the Systems and
Practices Laboratory at Xerox PARC is recruiting researchers who have
interest and skills in building knowledge rich systems that interact with
communities of users.

More specifically, we are looking for people interested in developing
representations of specific domains, problems and solutions based on input
from the context of a task, the content of the domain, and the participation
of a community of users.  Useful skills include knowledge representation
systems, natural language interpretation, model based reasoning,
probabilistic reasoning, and programming ability (e.g., Lisp and/or Java).
Successful candidates will have a PhD (or commensurate experience) in
artificial intelligence or a related field.

Researchers will be working in an energetic multi-disciplinary team seeking
to solve basic research problems around semi-automatic knowledge
structuring, and to find ways of applying this in the context of a real
community and knowledge base.  The skills mentioned will be distributed
among team members and also drawn from the greater PARC community.

To apply please submit a cover letter explaining your interest in this
project, a resume, and reprints of any applicable publications.  Direct all
materials to:

SPL/SERA Administrator

Applications by email will be accepted.  Applications will be acknowledged,

soon as a decision has been reached on the application.  Applications will
be processed in the order received,and positions will be filled as suitable
candidates are identified, so please submit your information as soon as
