The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page http://linguistlist.org/jobnet.html.

This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Date: 15-Dec-2004
From: Margaret Salome <v-marsalmicrosoft.com>
Subject: Russian & Russian Morpho-syntax: Linguistic Test Engineer, The Butler-Hill Group, CT, USA


University or Organization: The Butler-Hill Group 
 Job Rank: Linguistic Test Engineer  
 Specialty Areas: Syntax; Russian morpho-syntax 
 Required Language: Russian (RUS)
 
 
 Description:
 
 The Butler Hill Group, a small consulting company, seeks a Russian linguist
 (native-level fluency) to perform a number of tasks related to a
 Russian-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-Russian machine translation system.
 
 Candidates should be native or near-native speakers of Russian, with academic or
 professional background in Russian 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 accommodate 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 connectivity.
 
 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 the email
 address below.  Hard copies of application materials will not be accepted; email
 only. No phone calls, please.
