Jobs: Computational Linguistics/NLP: Developer, Alias-i Inc.

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.

Job Rank: Developer

Specialty Areas: Computational Linguistics; Natural Language Processing


Alias-i, the makers of the LingPipe suite of NLP tools, is hiring
developers to work on:

- Natural language processing API development
- Natural language processing application development
- Enterprise architecture design and integration
- User interface design and coding

We expect that it would take two full time positions or part-time
equivalents to cover what we need. More details below:

API development:

We need a machine learning savvy Java API developer to help extend our
'source released' LingPipe suite of tools. While we focus on language
processing, generic machine learning/statistical methods skills are fine
since the directions we want to go are not language processing specific.

Natural language processing application development:

We need one full time position (or part-time equivalents) devoted to our
Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the US
National Institutes of Health (NIH). Our goal is a topic- and
entity-faceted search engine making heavy use of query refinement and topic
discovery, and suited to queries derived from high throughput lab
experiments. We are collaborating with researchers at the Harvard
University Medical School, who have real biology problems to solve.

Enterprise architecture design and integration:

We are increasingly called upon to deliver web applications with LingPipe.
We need an experienced architect/developer to design scalable enterprise
application friendly implementations of spell checking, sentiment, named
entity extraction etc.

User interface design and development:

Our NIH work involves developing usable web interfaces for biomedical
researchers. This includes design, usability testing and coding (although
that could be subcontracted).

We're located in a sunny loft office in Brooklyn, New York, just across the
East River from downtown Manhattan, and convenient to public
transportation. We are not considering full-time telecommuters.

If you're interested, please send us an electronic copy of your resume, a
cover note briefly explaining how your skills and interests match our
requirements, and a description of your visa status for working in the
United States.

No headhunters, please.

The start date is as soon as possible. The position will remain open until

Application Deadline: Open until filled.
