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.

Description:

COMPUTATIONAL LEXICOGRAPHER

Want to join a winning team in transforming the world of business search?
We are seeking a detail-oriented computational lexicographer to be part of
our NLP development team.

This is a hands-on development job which requires the familiarity of
lexical development and debugging in a software development environment.
As an integrated member of the development team, the candidate needs to
contribute to the enhancement of the natural language processing engine by
developing computational grammars as well as lexicons based on reported
linguistic bugs. The job also involves managing machine readable
dictionaries in a database, collecting and modifying on-line lexical
resources and ontologies, managing annotation projects for development and
testing corpora, and maintenance of massive lexical resources of various
sources.

The candidate should have a Master's degree or above in Computational
Linguistics or related fields. Some programming experience or training is
necessary. Hands-on experience in developing computational lexicons in a
software environment is preferred. Native speaker of English is required.
Authorization to work in the US (including Canadian citizens) and
relocation are required. Fresh masters or PhDs in excellent standing with
relevant training can be considered for an internship which may lead to a
permanent job.

Compensation depends on background and experience. It also features the
benefits of working for a startup company, including a small team
environment, and stock options.
