I am seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position
at Bell Laboratories to work on English-Mandarin
translation. The work would be carried out as part of
a project to develop an experimental spoken language
translation system. The main responsibility would be the
construction of a Mandarin lexicon and an English-Mandarin
transfer lexicon in a probabilistic lexical grammar
formalism being developed in the project. Suitable
candidates should be fluent in Mandarin and will have
recently completed, or are about to complete, a PhD in
computational linguistics, linguistics, or speech processing.
If you are interested in this position, please send an
