Jobs: Stochastic Text Normalization; NLP: Postdoctoral Fellow, CSLU

Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.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.

Description:

This position has been filled.

The Center for Spoken Language Understanding (CSLU) at the Oregon Health &
Science University (OHSU), located in Portland, Oregon, has an immediate
opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the area of Stochastic Text Normalization
and Automatic Genre Adaptation for Structured Text Processing. The Fellowship
is for two years, with a possible extension to a third year.

The candidate will be working with Richard Sproat
(http://www.cslu.ogi.edu/~sproatr/) and Brian Roark
(http://www.cslu.ogi.edu/people/roark/). The project will involve developing
algorithms for the automatic induction of text normalization, parsing and
semantic role labeling models for social media texts. We will be working with
text in both Chinese and English, and the initial part of the project will
involve collecting training and testing corpora. Results of the work will be
packaged as tools based on the OpenFst weighted finite-state toolkit.

The candidate must have a PhD in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering,
Linguistics or related discipline, and a background in Natural Language
Processing. Starting salary will be $70,000.

US Citizenship is required.

Candidates should send a CV, statement of interest, and arrange for two
letters of recommendation to be sent to:

Research Projects) and projects focused on biomedical applications (Biomedical
Research Projects), specifically on creation of diagnostic, remedial, and
assistive methods for neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders and
diseases. More details of some of the projects at CSLU can be found at
