From: Phil Bralich <bralichuhunix.uhcc.Hawaii.Edu>
Subject: Search for proposal consultant

I am looking for an individual or a company who can help me prepare

a proposal for a software project that I would like to market to private

companies. I can be reached by email for further details, but before I

hire someone, I will need to see a resume, a track record, and some

references. The consultant will need to be experienced in writing proposals

for the computer industry. A knowledge of human language translation

technology would be a definite plus.

(Please forward to any additional interested parties)

University of Brighton

Information Technology Research Institute

Research Fellow - Computational Linguistics (fixed term for 3 years)
up to #19,137 per annum

This post is concerned with the development of techniques for enhancing
the representational structure of large-scale lexicons. The work will
involve surveying and collecting existing lexical resources, rapid
prototyping of enhancement techniques, testing and evaluation through
construction of pilot applications, and refinement of the techniques
into usable tools. A PhD in Computational Linguistics or a closely
related area, experience of lexical representation and good programming
skills, including familiarity with PROLOG and either POP11 or LISP, are
essential. Familiarity with the lexical representation language DATR, as
well as other lexical formalisms, is highly desirable. Experience of
large-scale lexicon development or acquisition, and of developing tools
for language engineering would also be an advantage.
