-----------------Opportunity 1--------------- Computational Linguist Location: Providence, Rhode Island Compensation: $75-100k, plus stock options, full benefits
We are seeking a very bright, self-motivated individual with experience in developing applications of corpus-based natural language processing, information retrieval, data mining, parsing, sense disambiguation, or other related products. This individual will be in charge of developing new algorithms for web-search enhancement, automatically extending our current database, and future products. Individuals with supervisory experience preferred as we expand our team of researchers. MA, Ph.D. or equivalent industry experience required.
My client is introducing the next major technology platform beyond search engines. We are looking for experienced, high energy and talented people, who are excited about being on the cutting edge of Internet knowledge technology. You will play a role in developing the new generation of breakthrough knowledge services. This new technology platform raises the bar of knowledge services to a higher level of minimum acceptable performance. Our ontology-enabled solution is fundamentally language-independent and can easily be modified to support every jargon-rich community (social and economic) on the planet.
Title: Natural Language Processing Developer (2 positions) Location: Boston, MA Responsibilities: *Developer and project manager for a high performance knowledge indexing system, using ontologies, NLP, Machine Learning and other advanced techniques. *Full cycle software development: use case analysis, requirements analysis, project planning, system design, object oriented analysis and design, implementation, testing, product delivery and maintenance. *Work closely with Customer Support and Sales and Marketing.
You Offer: Required: *Entrepreneurial spirit. Willing to work hard now to create company value and rewards of stock ownership. *C++, Java, CORBA, Object oriented methodologies *Unix platform *One or more of the following: Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, XML, RDF, XLL, high performance database systems, knowledge representation, Rational Rose

Position Title: Senior and Junior Knowledge Representation Research Scientists
Artificial Intelligence, Knowledge Representation, Machine Learning Researchers
My client is a research lab in Silicon Valley, with a variety of world-class innovations to its credit, and a world class reputation for excellence.
An innovative manager has opened up the usually restrictive recruiting process in search of Knowledge Representation Gurus. There will be up to three (or more) positions for excellent candidates, at both Senior and Junior levels. This manager is committed to building a team dedicated to fundamental research in new ways of doing document and content management in a net-based world. Specifically, this energetic, multi-disciplinary team will conduct research to advance the state of the art in knowledge representation and reasoning systems. Their goal is to refine semi-automatic knowledge structuring, and to find ways of applying this in the context of a real community and knowledge base.
Relevant backgrounds include, but are not limited to: Artificial Intelligence, Knowledge Representation, NLP, Conceptual Representation, Symbolic Reasoning, Qualitative Reasoning.
We are open to applications from candidates who are not currently authorized to work in the US.
Our research team is developing reasoning systems for specific domains that take as input the context of a task and the content of the domain. The team will also explore alternatives for effectively interacting with and supporting existing community work practices.
Required: * Ph.D. in artificial intelligence or a related field. *Expertise in one or more of the following: knowledge representation systems, natural language interpretation, model based and probabilistic reasoning, machine learning *Programming ability: Lisp, Scheme, and/or Java
Job Title: Computational Linguist Location: Dallas, TX Description of Work Duties: To assist in the development of NL-related tools and architectures for my client’s product range. NL tasks will be as varied as document segmentation, efficient spelling-correction algorithms, syntactic parsing of NL questions and the construction of semantic representations
thereof, phrase extraction from free text, recognition of novel named entities, lexicon construction (and the leveraging of public domain components such as WordNet) and sentence generation (expressing answers to NL questions in a readable form).
Required Skills (Mandatory): Bsc/BA in Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering or a related discipline. A linguistics degree with extensive course-work on computational topics is equally relevant. Practical programming experience with Java, C++ or C, particularly in the domain of efficient parser construction.
Preferred Skills (Desirable): Msc/MA or PhD in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Computational Linguistics or a related discipline. Experience with Finite State approaches to language modeling. Object-Oriented design experience/skills. Lex and Yacc experience. Lexicon construction skills, in particular the utilization of third-party components such as WordNet.
-----------------Opportunity 5--------------- Job Title: Computational Linguist Location: Dallas, TX Information Retrieval / Extraction Specialist
My client is applying the latest research in information retrieval and Information Extraction to solve real business problems. If you are a research scientist in these technology areas, and are ready to move your
work from the lab to the commercial space, we need to talk.
Description: This is an architect-level position, reporting to the Vice President of Development. As Sr. Scientist for information processing you will design
and develop a robust and efficient system for classification and extraction of information from Internet text. You will be involved at all phases of the systems development lifecycle: from directing R&D efforts, to leading the development of classification, retrieval, and extraction sub-systems.
Required Experience: Qualified candidates must have demonstrated mastery of parser development, semantic indexing, and information classification. Should be confident with Object Oriented Analysis, Design, and Development (Java or C++)
Education Requirements: Established expertise (PhD & publications) in relevant fields such as Computational Linguistics (NLP concentration), Artificial Intelligence (Classification, NLP, Machine Learning), or Psychology (Psycholinguistics). Please note relevant publications and research when applying.
