Subject: job opening at Microsoft
The Microsoft Natural Language Processing lab is looking for a
COMPUTATIONAL LINGUIST/LEXICOGRAPHER with theoretical training,
practical experience, and a yen for electronic adventure, to join a
dedicated team of computational linguists in building a system for the
analysis and generation of natural languages. Primary responsibilities
include:
 (a) building large-scale computational lexicons;
 (b) interfacing the lexicons with various components of a
broad-coverage natural language processing system;
 (c) designing and developing new lexicons and lexical components,
making use of online knowledge bases such as dictionaries;
 (d) documenting the lexicon and lexical systems.
Qualifications should include at least one year's experience with
building large-scale computational lexicons, familiarity with lexical
issues at various levels, and familiarity with popular linguistic
theories and their implications for content and structure of the
lexicon. An advanced degree in computer science, linguistics, or a
related field is preferred -- either a PhD with 1+ years' experience
with real NLP systems, or a master's degree with 3+ years' experience.
