Hi all – see below for a message from Professor Emily Bender on a job opportunity for fluent Russian speakers.
Dear Ling Students,
I am working on an IARPA-sponsored project entitled LiCORICE:
Linguistic Cues Of Roles In Conversational Exchange. This project
is blending machine learning (AI) with sociolinguistics and
communication theory to attempt to automatically recognize
alignment between participants and attempts to establish credibility
in different genres. We are currently working with the discussion pages
associated with wikipedia articles. We began with English and Mandarin,
and are now extending this work to Russian.
We are looking for two-three people to work as hourly annotators on
our project. They should be fluent speakers (native speakers preferred)
and readers of Russian. The hourly pay is $14.46, and we’re looking
for roughly 10 hrs/week beginning mid-May and extending into the
summer. Training in linguistics or sociolinguistics would be a big plus.
If you are interested, please contact me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you know someone who might be interested, please forward this
