The LINGUIST List offers summer internships in 2015 for undergraduate and
graduate students, even for senior high-school students. If you are interested
in working with The LINGUIST List over the summer, consider applying for our
summer internship program:


Interns at LINGUIST List have the opportunity to participate in the daily
operations of the LINGUIST List. They also get involved in interdisciplinary
research projects and activities under the supervision of local faculty at
Indiana University or visiting faculty at The LINGUIST List.

During the internship you will work on LINGUIST List tasks, including editing
submissions to the LINGUIST List and correspondence with linguists, and you
will have the opportunity to work on concrete research projects related to
language and STEM sub-disciplines: dealing with language documentation, speech
and language data, as well as engineering of software solutions and
algorithms, mathematical concepts and methods, and technologies.

Depending on individual interests or skills interns can get involved in the
following projects for a certain proportion of their work time:
- Language and Location: A Map Accessibility Project (LL-MAP) using GIS and
geographical language information
- MultiTree, a digital library of scholarly hypotheses visualization project
- General Ontology for Linguistic Description (GOLD) or the Lexical
Enhancement via the GOLD Ontology (LEGO)
- The DAPS (Detecting Anomalous Parse Structures) project, developing ways of
detecting errors in dependency parse structures
- Yiddish speech corpus and automatic speech recognition and forced alignment
- Chatino speech corpus and automatic speech recognition and forced alignment
- Texas-German speech corpus and automatic speech recognition and forced
- Marathi Phonation-Type Contrast Typology and Resourcing
- Chimpoto corpus analyses and annotation, ELAN format transformation
- Grammar Engineering (Morphology and Syntax, Finite State and LFG-based) for
Slavic and Asia-Pacific languages
- language data encoding, common language technologies for the annotation,
creation of digital dictionaries and lexicons, audio and video recordings for
language documentation
- Natural Language Processing (NLP) algorithms and Human Language Technology
(HLT) applications.

Internships are generally available for a three-month period between May and
August, 30 to 40 hours per week. Interns can receive a modest stipend. Housing
is not provided, although The LINGUIST List team and the local linguistics
students and faculty at Indiana University in Bloomington can provide some
assistance in locating accommodations. International applicants are
encouraged, but must have or obtain an appropriate visa, i.e. one that permits
them to work, study, or intern in the US.
