[I hope this message fits the netiquette of this list; I checked the terms
on the website, and since this job opening is centrally concerned with
ECLiPSe, I believe it's appropriate.]

Here's a description of the opening:

Experiments in social psychology have shown that people spontaneously
attribute intentions, beliefs, emotions, and other mental states to
simply-animated, moving figures. Although there is research on what factors
affect people's tendency to make such attributions, there has been little
work on developing a process model.

Although our initial aim is to develop a process-oriented account, we
believe that a computational model of such attributions could have a variety
of practical applications such as monitoring systems for assisted living and
for security.

Our approach involves creating a knowledge base that links movement patterns
to mental states that typically motivate them. An important aspect of the
movement pattern knowledge is a variety of geometric spatial constraints,
which need to be formulated in a logic-based constraint framework such as
ECLiPSe (http://eclipse-clp.org/). We are looking for a recent PhD (or
highly motivated science graduate) who has experience with constraint
propagation techniques and an interest in cognitive or perceptual modelling.
Hands-on experience with ECLiPSe is strongly preferred.
