The Butler Hill Group, a small consulting company, seeks a Korean
linguist (native-level fluency) to perform a number of tasks related
to a Korean-language natural language processing system under
development, including consulting with linguists, syntacticians,
lexicographers, and developers during the development process, and
then performing quality assurance (testing) of the output. Sample
tasks might include verifying the accuracy of parse trees, setting
lexical (semantic) features on dictionary entries, and testing the
output of an English-Korean machine translation system.

Candidates should be native or near-native speakers of Korean, with
academic or professional background in Korean linguistics, especially
syntax, strong computer skills in a Windows environment, excellent
communication skills in English, and a detail-oriented
personality. The ideal candidate would be close enough to our client
in Redmond, WA, to work on-site one day per week, working remotely the
rest of the time; however, we will also consider someone off-site who
would work entirely remotely, though some travel may be required.

This is an excellent opportunity for a graduate student or junior
faculty seeking extra income; we can accomodate many unusual
scheduling and telecommuting requirements. The ideal schedule would
include some early morning availability (Pacific Time).

US residents must have US work authorization (US citizen or permanent
resident). Unfortunately, the Butler Hill Group cannot sponsor
employment visas.

Must have regular, secure access (e.g. not a public machine) to a
machine running a recent version of Windows, with good Internet

This is part-time contract work, 10-20 hours/week. A professional
hourly rate will be paid, as 1099 self-employment income.

To apply, please send a cover letter and resume or CV, in English to
Mo Corston-Oliver,
