SRI International has been at the forefront of speech and natural language
research for decades, and has recently been very active in commercialization
of aspects of that research (through spinoffs including Siri, Trapit, Desti,
and Kuato, in addition to licenses with major companies). Our current
technology platform offers an end-to-end spoken natural language dialog
solution for many applications. We see this as just the beginning of the
capabilities that will be needed in this rapidly growing area.

We are seeking an entrepreneurial minded senior scientist to develop and lead
an R&D program in natural language dialog systems, with emphasis on dialog
management. Responsibilities include planning and promoting government and
especially commercially-funded research projects in the area, leading and
participating in those projects, and contributing to creation of commercial
ventures and licenses.

Requirements:
- PhD in computer science, electrical engineering, linguistics or related
discipline.
- Established record in research as evidenced by publications, reputation, and
general quality of contribution
- Five to eight years of experience in any of the following areas are
preferred:
* Artificial intelligence
* Intelligent agents: Agent communication languages, agent architectures
* Spoken language systems: Speech recognition, natural language understanding,
dialogue, conversational agents
* User centered design
