- Strong background in phonology and computational linguistics
- Proficient in phonology and linguistics of multiple languages
- Experienced in development of language resources for speech recognition and text-to-speech technologies in several languages including English
- Strong understanding of fundamentals in acoustic phonetics – proven ability to learn the nuances of languages that you do not speak
- Proficient in the International Phonetic Alphabet for transcription of dictionaries
- In depth understanding of morphology and syntax of English and at least one other language
- Proven experience in understanding of processes and heuristics involved in automating linguistic tasks such as stress prediction, prosody prediction and syllabification

Qualifications that would be a plus:
- Experience with designing and executing large-scale data collection efforts for multiple languages
- 2+ years of experience with speech recognition, text-to-speech, or natural language processing
- 2+ years of experience with data mining, pattern recognition, and machine learning techniques
