Jobs: English & Computational Linguistics: Specialist, H5

Editor for this issue: Bethany Townsend <bethanylinguistlist.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 at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

About H5

H5 serves the needs of Fortune 500 corporate legal departments and leading
law firms, delivering automated document review and risk management
services. H5's document review and analytic services uniquely support our
clients' requirements for large-scale litigation, records retention, and
regulatory compliance. H5's "hybrid" approach to document review combines
patented information retrieval technology and expert professional services.
Through this model, H5 has created a fully integrated document review
system that is unparalleled in performance, as proven in independent,
benchmarked studies. Using the H5 system, our clients have demonstrably
reduced (by 50 percent or more) the risk, cost, and time-to-completion
traditionally associated with large-scale document review. For more
information, visit the website listed above.

We are looking for a highly knowledgeable, self-motivated expert to round
out our R&D team in the area of Computational Linguistics. The successful
candidate will work with our R&D team to identify and develop advanced
Natural Language Processing technologies to create and improve H5's
processes and product offerings. Potential areas of application include
spelling correction, parsing, text classification, computational semantics,
text understanding, corpus analysis, information retrieval, and information

- Explore natural language techniques and systems for potential
application to H5's needs

- Consult with users to determine their needs and requirements
- Experiment with techniques and existing systems to determine best
approach to enhance H5's text processing capabilities
- Implement and integrate scalable and reliable NLP software
- Design and carry out experiments to evaluate research results, working
with users to analyze and integrate results of research
- Present research results and guide adoption of research
- Work with management to develop applications of computational
linguistics and suggest new product offerings
- Consult with other R&D Team members to develop common interests and
- Document and support patent filings that arise from work

- Proven ability to develop efficient software
- Proven experience in Natural Language Processing / Computational Linguistics
- Master's or PhD or equivalent experience in Computational Linguistics or
closely related field
- Knowledge of techniques such as: Finite State Transducers / FST, Hidden
Markov Models / HMM, Expectation Maximization / EM, Maximum Entropy,
Conditional Random Fields / CRF
- Experience with classification, visualization, and other data management
techniques would be a bonus
