Subject: Japanese specialist needed

The Linguistics Research Department at AT&T Bell Laboratories is
seeking a native or near-native speaker of Japanese to work as a
consultant in the development of a text-analysis module for a Japanese
text-to-speech synthesizer.

The candidate should have a good background in linguistics, with a
knowledge of computational linguistics being especially desirable.
The candidate should also have a good (explicit) knowledge of Japanese
word-structure, phonology and intonation. Applicants should be current
graduate students or recent PhDs/MAs.

The duration of the project is somewhat open-ended but will probably
amount to 200 days over the next few months. The starting time is also
somewhat flexible, though we would like to start as soon as possible.
Consultant fees are negotiable.

Please send inquiries, CVs, etc., preferably by email, to me at the
address below.
