We're looking for linguists to develop data infrastructure for Natural Language Processing systems across products. You will work collaboratively with linguists and software engineers to create a language analysis pipeline. Diversity is an asset; we're looking for people who can articulate their positions and intuitions while seeking common ground with others.
We're looking for expertise in all subfields of linguistics. No matter your experience, you should be passionate about your area and arrive ready to describe your favorite research project. You should have experience developing/evaluating theories that capture linguistic generalizations while also being precise, concise, and implementable.
You are open to programming and data processing techniques; you have written some code and are willing to learn more. You should understand basic programming concepts: you know what a variable is and the purpose of functions. You don’t have to be a wizard, but at a minimum, you can write scripts for manipulating text files.
You know that language data is the underpinning of all current language technologies. You love practical language analysis as well as theoretical. You understand basic statistics and experimental design. You understand your experimental variables and how to control them. You know what statistical significance is and you can find the right test to evaluate your results. You bring a unique skill set to the table and are eager to adapt it to a diverse range of products and problems.
The successful candidate will be engaged in general responsibilities and at least one specialized role:
Academic degree in Linguistics, Computational Linguistics, Language Technologies, or related field (Required)
Advanced degree and/or industry experience (Preferred)
