Description:

We have a team of computational linguists that work with engineers to develop natural language processing software. The linguists develop, manage, and test lexical data that drives linguistic analysis at various levels from tokenization to lemmatization to sentiment assignment.

We are seeking two computational linguists for research and development related to a multi-language natural language processing system.

- Japanese
- Spanish
- Portuguese
- French
- Italian

Proficiency in other languages is a strong plus, such as:
- Korean
- Norwegian
- Swedish
- Turkish

Computational linguistic background:
- An academic degree and 2-5 yrs of professional experience as a computational linguist
- Experience with creating morphological rules for languages both familiar and unfamiliar
- Experience with language corpora
- Proficiency with regular expressions and basic Unix/Linux shell commands
- Excellent written and oral communication skills in English
- Strong analytical skills
- Ability to work independently
- Proficiency in a scripting language (Perl, Python, Ruby, etc.) is a plus

The candidates will be responsible for:
- Creating, developing, and maintaining lexicons and morphological rules in a variety of languages
- Assessing the quality of existing language work
- Ongoing testing and evaluation of language analysis software
- Researching and evaluating tokenization, morphological, and higher level analysis techniques
