Subject: Computational Linguist, Rhode Island

I am doing a search for a company in Rhode Island, started by Brown University
alumni that has developed patent-pending meaning-based search technology. 
They just merged with one of the largest ISPs and are well funded. 
They are looking for a full-time, permanent Computational Linguist to 
participate in the collaboration and creation of advanced language tools for 
Web search and other projects. 
Immediate projects include:
	* Develop Page sense disambiguation (PSD) algorithms to improve and 
 augment current methods for disambiguation of web pages
	* Build a web-based, multi-purpose corpus
	* Develop Automatic Expansion algorithms -from user-added meanings,
	 automatically update the database; perform hyponym extraction from 
 web-based corpora
	* Develop single line parser algorithm - pull out the nouns and 
 possibly intentions from a query on the search engine
	* Develop evaluation methodologies for all algorithms
	* Create and manage a research team - locate and recruit people who 
 are experts in any of the needed fields
If you know of anyone who might be interested or if you would like more
information, please give me a call, toll-free, at (877) 465-9570.
