Fri Dec 23 2005

Jobs: Computational Ling: Linguist/Senior Linguist, USA

Editor for this issue: Meredith Valant <meredithlinguistlist.org>

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

Message 1: Computational Linguistics: Linguist/Senior Linguist: Cataphora, Inc., CA, USA
Date: 20-Dec-2005
From: Richard Oehrle <rtocataphora.com>
Subject: Computational Linguistics: Linguist/Senior Linguist: Cataphora, Inc., CA, USA

University or Organization: Cataphora, Inc.
Department: Linguistics
Job Rank: Linguist/Senior Linguist
Specialty Areas: Computational Linguistics; None

Cataphora is a young, growing company, building a business focusing
on the analysis of large corpora of electronic documents, a field which
is rich in technological and commercial opportunities. We have a core
technology, a working product, and a talented team of experienced and
passionate software professionals with broad expertise. Our customer
base is expanding and we are profitable.

We seek individuals with outstanding skills in the analysis
of multi-lingual electronic corpora. We are open in principle to
a variety of training, experience, and inclination---linguistics
and computational linguistics, artificial intelligence and
its applications, knowledge engineering. We are especially interested
in individuals comfortable with the techniques and relative merits
of both symbolic and statistical approaches. We actively engage both
in the development of new advances of our core technology and
product line and in the application of stable technology to customer
needs. In the long run, both are essential to the health of our
company; but in the short run, satisfying current customers is critical
to our success. Current customers are often driven by impending
deadlines and stringent criteria whose violation imposes significant
penalties. This lends a certain intensity to the Cataphora working
environment, and concomitant opportunities to earn significant rewards
(along with considerable flexibility in working hours).

If this combination of rewards and challenges attracts you and you are
interested in constructing working systems with demonstrated and
growing value, we want to hear from you. (It is not our policy to
handle relocations; TN visas or H1 visa transfers, however,

We will be interviewing candidates at the LSA Annual Meeting in
Albuquerque, N.M., in January 2006.
