Jobs: Chinese, Mandarin & Comp Ling: Consultant, Butler Hill Group

Editor for this issue: Erin Smith <erinlinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, 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: Consultant

Specialty Areas: Computational Linguistics

Required Language(s): Chinese, Mandarin (cmn)


We are seeking a computational linguist with proficiency in Mandarin
Chinese to perform research related to a natural language processing
system under development. Primary responsibilities will include
researching available tokenizers for Mandarin Chinese and producing a
report that compares different tokenizers, describes their pros and cons
and makes recommendations on choosing the right tokenizer for the NLP
system under development.

Qualified candidates must be native or near-native speakers of Mandarin
Chinese, be familiar with both Simplified and Traditional writing systems
and must demonstrate excellent communication skills in English. They
should also have an academic or professional background in computational
linguistics. The work hours will be flexible but we expect 20-30 hours/week,
over 3-4 weeks, for a total of 60-80 hours starting late May.

We are willing to accommodate many unusual scheduling and
telecommuting requirements. Our client is based in the Washington DC
area, (Eastern Time zone), so although there is no geographic requirement
regarding remote work location, all linguistic consultants will be expected
to be timely in their communication and regularly available for some email
or phone correspondence during the client's regular business hours
(9h00-17h00 EST).

US residents must have any-employer US work authorization valid for the
next 12 months. Unfortunately, we cannot sponsor employment visas.

We offer a competitive, professional hourly rate, paid as 1099 self-
employment income.
