Message 3: Job Posting: Korean Lexicographer (Microsoft)

Subject: Job Posting: Korean Lexicographer (Microsoft)


The NLP Group in Microsoft Research is looking for a computational
lexicographer for Korean. The position 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.


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.


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
Korean 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.


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.

the World Wide Web.
