From: Mark Aronoff <>
Subject: NLP jobs summary

A couple of weeks ago, I asked whether there is a central source of
information about jobs in NLP. I received about ten responses, some
of which mentioned specific job opportunities, which I passed on to
my student.

I am posting here a summary of the general discussion.

1. There is a list called Langage Naturel (LNFRMOP11.BITNET), run
by Philippe Blache (, which may be useful.

2. The attendance lists from ACL could be helpful.

3. Mark Kantrowitz at CMU has a mailing list called ai-jobs. Many of the
listings are in CL/NLP. He can be reached at

4. Ken I. Laws runs a for-moderate-fee mailing list called the Computist's
Communique. It's a general e-newsletter for computer scientists, but includes
an appendix (of sorts) of job ads in applied CS/AI. again, quite a few NLP
ads. Ken offers once-a-month freebies, and bargain subscriptions for students
and unemployed members.

5. The (very low volume) newsgroup lists jobs

6. The Empiricist mailing list is an email-list covering corpus-based NLP, and
For nlp jobs, have a look at Colibri, a weekly newsletter
and WWW service for people interested in language, logic,
speech and/or information. Have a look at our URL:

A keyword search on "job" will basically yield an overview
of all jobs that were ever announced in Colibri, which
includes all nlp-jobs we were able to find.

By this message, I announce that I am going out of the employment
counseling business.
