The eligible topics are the institute's current or future research directions:

- Formal language theory and its applications.
- Bioinformatics.
- Biomolecular computing and nanotechnology.
- Language and speech technologies.
- Formal theories of language acquisition.

Other related fields might still be eligible provided there exist strong enough candidates for them.


- Top-level appointments for experienced researchers being on leave from their home organization.
