Two new lectureship openings for folks with competence in computational approaches to argumentation (broadly construed) have been posted at ARG:Dundee.  They are here and here.  Good luck!

Argumentation Technology has been marked as one of the ten priority areas for the University’s new Dundee Fellows scheme, which offers a number of permanent (i.e. tenured) lectureships with low teaching loads, to support the career development of strong new academic appointments. Excellent research potential with evidence of existing top quality publications is the key criterion.

A Dundee Fellow Research Lectureship in the Argumentation Research Group is an additional post to the recently advertised Lectureship in the group, and represents a significant investment and expression of confidence by the University in this area of research. Applications from candidates with experience in all areas with relevance to argument and debate are invited, but we are particularly keen to see applications from those with a demonstrated track record in artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, discourse processing, formal models of the law, or mathematical logic.

Further information about the Argumentation Research Group ARG:dundee can be found at http://www.arg.dundee.ac.uk, and about the Dundee Fellows scheme at http://www.dundee.ac.uk/dundeefellows

Deadline for applications is 23 January 2013. For further information, please contact Prof. Chris Reed by email c.a.reedATdundee.ac.uk or by telephone (+44 1382 388083).

The ever-industrious folks at ARG:Dundee (the group behind the popular argument diagramming software Araucaria) have a lovely new tool for keeping track of and participating in argumentation on the “blogosphere”.  They call it “argublogging“. I think it’s an impressive extension of the work they’ve done on the Argument Interchcange Format, or AIF. The video below gives a demonstration of how ArguBlogging works.  If you use argument diagrams in class and discuss the kinds of current events that get discussed on blogs then this program may well be your new best friend. Have a look. Try it out.  Send them feedback.  This is work worth supporting.
