LINGUIST List 17.3070

Thu Oct 19 2006

Jobs: Computational Linguistics: Rank Open, InQuira, Inc

Editor for this issue: Catherine Adams <catherinlinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

NLP system seeks Computational Linguist for long-term relationship.

I am intelligent and well-built but still young with much potential for growth.
I can't do it alone and need you to help me take that step to the next level.
I'm sensitive and understanding and can converse knowledgeably on a wide variety
of subjects in many languages. I love to travel and have been employed all over
the world.

I like intellectual types and higher education turns me on; but to be my partner
you also need to be a hands-on sort of person, someone who is willing to get to
know me inside and out. I'm a coffee addict, so you will also need some serious
Java experience to keep me happy. If you can sweet talk me in more than one
language, that's a big plus.

Please tell me about yourself by emailing jobs-5002inquira.com.


In all seriousness, if you have excellent programming skills with a
background in Computational Linguistics, InQuira wants to hire you to work
on our core NLP system and interface with our language team. Some
specifics of what we are looking for:

- 2+ years of professional Java experience (serious work in a large-scale
research project may be OK too)
- An advanced degree in Computational Linguistics or related field
- A deep appreciation of language issues (including cross-lingual)
- Some background in machine learning and statistical methods

InQuira was formed in 2002 as a merger between two top-notch natural
language search companies. We are now the industry leader in intelligent
search and knowledge management solutions. You can find out more about us
at http://www.inquira.com.
