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.

Formed in 2011, this start-up aims to bring a concise and efficient web
browsing experience to mobile and desktop devices through its innovative
summarization technology.

Based on Machine Learning and NLP techniques, this solution has generated
significant amounts of press and industry attention and has resulted in the
capture of significant funding. We are now looking for an NLP Developer to
further develop the product into a fullly licensable, enterprise-grade
summarization technology.

Responsibilities:
- Contribute actively to software development activities as part of a
development team
- Conduct and review research into summarization theory, and contribute to
the direction of the product
- Participate in code reviews, development plans and testing activities

Background:
Qualified candidates will:
- Have an Masters or PhD-level qualification in an NLP-related field
(Computational Linguistics, Computer Science, Informatics etc)
- Have strong coding skills (specific programming language experience not
important)
- Have an extensive understanding of Natural Language Processing and
Machine Learning techniques

Any experience or knowledge of summarisation would be a significant plus,
but is far from a prerequisite.

This role would suit a recent Masters/PhD graduate seeking commercial NLP
Development experience.

Application Deadline: 14-Apr-2012 (Open until filled)
