Dear All ,

I allow myself to contact you in order to present you one interesting
permanent contract opportunity in Luxembourg.

One of my clients who is an IT Services company is currently looking to
recruit a particular team.

Indeed, for a European Institution based in Luxembourg, they are
involved in a big EU Machine Translation project. That is why they are
looking to hire Computational Linguists from different EU countries.

Please find below the details concerning this job:

We are looking for experts in statistical machine translation (SMT).
Required experience and qualifications:

- PhD or MSc/Diploma in computational linguistics or computer science
  with excellent knowledge of machine translation (MT) and/or machine
  learning for natural language processing.

- Familiarity with recent developments in SMT and the motivation to
  apply novel approaches emanating from ongoing research to practical
  translation tasks in many languages and to systematically evaluate
  their suitability.

- Ability to write scientific papers and technical documents in English.

- Open-mindedness and the will to collaborate closely within an
  international, multidisciplinary team, motivation to work with a
  multilingual user community.

- Experience in designing and running large-scale experiments, including
  the necessary skills to manage large data sets and long-running
  experiments in a distributed computational environment would be highly
  desirable, interest in developing such skills is mandatory.

- Experience with both statistical and grammar-based approaches to MT
  would be highly desirable.

- Programming skills in languages like Perl, Python, C, or C++ would be
  a strong plus.

- Good oral and written command of English is required; familiarity with
  additional EU languages (preferably Eastern/Northern European) would
  be a strong plus.

If you are interested by this position, do not hesitate to provide me
with your resume and /or your availabilities for a first phone

If you are not interested, it would be very helpful to forward this
opportunity to persons that might be interested.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best Regards,
