I wanted to mention a Python Web Developer opportunity at Stanford. We are
looking for a serious Python developer/hacker. The person will have an
opportunity to interact with Stanford CS Natural Language Processing group
and get exposed to the latest research in machine learning and NLP. There
will also be an opportunity to write search and data-mining code.  


I am posting a job description below.


Thanks, - George

companies involved in technology transfer, patent policy makers and legal

- CS Professors Chris Manning and Hector Garcia-Molina are technical

- We perform cutting-edge research in Machine Learning and NLP on our
Intellectual Property Corpus

- This database of intellectual property documents has never been created

- Cisco, Oracle, Intel, SAP, Genentech and other tech companies are funding
the effort




- Architect, build and maintain rapidly evolving Python-based Web site

- Connect Web site to the Java-based back-end which supplies machine
