Message 2: Job Posting: NLP German grammarian, Japanese lexicographer

Date: Mon, 08 Jan 1996 16:36:21 PST
From: Deborah Coughlin <deborahcmicrosoft.com>
Subject: Job Posting: NLP German grammarian, Japanese lexicographer

 ========================================================

 	 COMPUTATIONAL GRAMMARIAN for German
 COMPUTATIONAL LEXICOGRAPHER for Japanese
 		

 The NLP Group in Microsoft Research is looking for
 a computational lexicographer for Japanese, and a computational
 grammarian for German. The positions will be located
 on the Microsoft central campus in Redmond, Washington, USA.
 This is a great opportunity to work with a dedicated group of
 researchers who are creating a system for unrestricted text
 understanding and generation.

 RESPONSIBILITIES:

 The grammarian's primary responsibilities include developing
 and testing a computational grammar for the language, in
 accordance with the overall architecture of the Microsoft
 Natural Language Understanding system. The initial emphasis
 will be on creating a grammar for syntactic analysis.

 The lexicographer's primary responsibilities include
 developing and maintaining the morphological rules and data
 for the language, in accordance with the overall system
 architecture used by the Microsoft Research NLP group.

 QUALIFICATIONS:

 The grammarian's qualifications should include experience in
 linguistic research and software development; familiarity
 with natural language processing; a flexible approach to
 linguistic theory; and an advanced degree in linguistics,
 computer science, or a closely related discipline. Native
 proficiency in the language of choice is assumed; practical
 experience with NLP implementation issues is highly desirable.

 The lexicographer's qualifications should include experience
 in linguistic research and online dictionary development,
 programming experience, keen interest in lexical issues, and
 an advanced degree in linguistics or a closely related
 discipline. Native proficiency in the language of choice is
 assumed. A practical orientation is highly desirable.
 Significant programming experience or experience extracting
 lexical information from online dictionaries or corpora would
 be a plus.

 ABOUT THE MICROSOFT NLP RESEARCH GROUP:

 We are in the process of designing and building a system to
 analyze unrestricted natural language, taking input text, and
 moving from lexical/morphological analysis through syntax,
 semantics, and eventually pragmatics and discourse. A
 generation component is also planned. The programming system
 and underlying principles that are used for English have been
 found to be applicable to other languages. We are empirically
 oriented, and are happy to use good linguistic ideas wherever
 they can be found. A reasonable first-version summary of our
 techniques and some of our experience can be found in the book
 "Natural Language Processing: The PLNLP Approach," Kluwer
 Academic Publishers, Boston, 1993.
