Department of Linguistics at Beijing Language and Culture University announced its birth on Oct 29th, 2018. Multiple positions for teaching and research are available now to both domestic and international scholars who are interested in working with us to create something new in linguistics, not only in the basic branches such as syntax, semantics, phonology and phonetics, morphology and pragmatics, language acquisition and so on, but also in those advanced interdisciplinary areas such as biolinguistics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics and so on.

Duties consist of administration of all phases of ALI to include budgeting, program development and direction; coordination with academic units on ESL related matters, recruitment and marketing; placement and enrollment direction and supervision; faculty and staff hiring, and supervision of curriculum planning and development.

We are using machine learning to extract country recommendations from International Monetary Fund (IMF) documents. We need to teach the machine to recognize a recommendation in these documents. We have been using humans to identify recommendations and teaching the machine on this basis. (I'm simplifying). Recommendations are super interesting from a linguistic standpoint though. "If you hadn't done that, we wouldn't be in this mess" is maybe or maybe not a recommendation. It's so hard, even for the humans.
