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.

Description:

A position is expected to become available for a Research Associate to work
on statistical machine translation. The project, funded by the DARPA Broad
Operational Language Translation (BOLT) programme, will involve
collaboration with IBM TJ Watson Research Center and other leading
machine translation researcher groups in Europe and the USA. The aim of
the project is to dramatically improve statistical machine translation relative to
the current state of the art. The successful candidate will have a very good
first degree in a relevant discipline and preferably have a higher degree in
Engineering or Computer Science. Preference will be given to candidates
with experience in large-scale syntax-based statistical machine translation,
weighted finite state transducers, and machine learning and statistical pattern
processing techniques. As two of the languages of interest are Arabic and
Mandarin, fluency in either of these languages would be an advantage.
