================================================================  

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use
non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge
that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity,
nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we
have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding
employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international
employment page http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set 
up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Description:

North Side Inc. is hard at work on its Bot Colony title,  the first
conversation game in unrestricted English. See www.botcolony.com

We are looking for a Researcher who has experience in the area of Dialogue
Management to join us in our Montreal facility. The key areas of
concentration are dialogue robustness, recovery from mutual
mis-understandings, clarification of user's intent, maintenance of a user
task model, contextual help and provision of feedback.

We are developing a full pipeline for dialogue processing, that includes
parsing, reasoning and generation. A March-2009 vintage technology demo
video is available on YouTube, please type 'Bot Colony' in the YouTube
search box.

We work mostly in Java, and experience in interfacing with parsing,
reasoning and generation software is important, as the Dialogue Manager
interfaces with these components.
