Subject: JOB: COMPUTATIONAL LINGUIST FOR TEXT-TO-SPEECH SYNTHESIS

Motorola's Chicago Corporate Research Laboratories is currently
seeking a computational linguist to join the Speech Synthesis
Group in its Speech Processing Systems Research Laboratory in
Schaumburg, Illinois.

The Speech Synthesis Group of Motorola's Speech Processing
Laboratory has developed a world-class multi-language
text-to-speech synthesizer. This synthesizer is based on
innovative neural network and signal processing technologies and
produces more natural sounding speech than traditional speech
synthesis methods. The successful candidate will work on the
components of a text-to-speech system that convert text into a
phonetic representation, including part of speech tagging, word
sense disambiguation and parsing for prosody. The duties of the
position include applied research, software development, data
collection, and transfer of developed technologies to product
groups. Innovation in research, application of technology and a
high level of motivation is the standard for all members of the
team.

The individual should possess a Ph.D. in the area of
computational linguistics with a minimum of two years work
experience developing spoken language systems. Strong
programming skills in C or C++ are required. Knowledge of neural
networks, decision trees, genetic algorithms, and statistical
techniques is highly desirable.

Please send resume and cover letter by June 15, 1996 to be
considered for this position to Motorola Inc., Corporate Staffing
Department, Attn: LP-T1521, 1303 E. Algonquin Rd., Schaumburg, IL
60196. Fax: 847-576-4959. Motorola is an equal
opportunity/affirmative action employer. We welcome and
encourage diversity in our workforce.
