Description:

The Research Linguist II will work closely with other medical language 
linguists, NLP Engineers and Clinical Coding Analysts to develop state-of-
the-art medical NLP. The Research Linguist II must develop a thorough 
understanding of all clinical coding applications of LifeCode technology, 
and be able to apply this knowledge to other types of medical information 
extraction. Responsibilities will include maintaining and developing domain-
specific lexical databases and rules related to multiple coding or information 
extraction areas, and will also include assessing the application of our 
software to other disciplines or information extraction projects. This person 
will apply various techniques from computational linguistics to develop and 
improve software modules that perform morphological analysis, 
tokenization, parsing, and semantic analysis. Linguistic design work on 
particular areas of semantic or grammatical disambiguation will be required, 
with constant attention to implementation and a rapid development cycle. 
The successful candidate will be capable of leading specific NLP 
development projects as needed, and of mentoring more junior research 
linguists. The Research Linguist II reports to the Manager of NLP 
Development.
