The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page http://linguistlist.org/jobnet.html.

This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

 The Department of Linguistics at Northwestern University invites applications
 for a full-time non-renewable Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship funded through a
 grant to the University from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.  The fellowship is
 for a period of two academic years, beginning September 1, 2005.  In accordance
 with the fellowship guidelines, all requirements for the Ph.D. must be completed
 prior to the start of the fellowship period.  We are seeking recent Ph.D.s in
 any subfield of linguistics who have analyzed primary data (e.g., experimental
 data, field data, or natural language corpora) in order to address theoretical
 issues.
 
 Candidates with research interests in the languages of US Hispanic/Latino
 populations or languages of the Islamic world are especially welcome. The
 position also provides funds for computer facilities and professional travel. 
 Mellon postdoctoral fellows are expected to participate fully in Northwestern's
 interdisciplinary research environment, teach a one-quarter lecture course and a
 one-quarter seminar per year, and present one colloquium per year.
 
 For fullest consideration, candidates should ensure that their application
 arrives in the Department before January 15, 2005.  Applications by e-mail will
 not be accepted. The application should include the candidate's CV (indicating
 an e-mail address), statements of research and teaching interests, teaching
 evaluations (if available), and reprints or other written work.  (Finalists will
 be asked to submit a copy of the dissertation, or completed portions thereof, at
 a later date; it is not necessary to do so at this time.) Candidates should
 arrange to have 3-4 letters of reference sent directly to the search committee
 by the application deadline; if possible, one of the letters should specifically
 address the applicant's teaching qualifications.
 
 E-mail inquiries should be directed to mellonling.northwestern.edu.  The
 web page for the Department is: http://www.wcas.northwestern.edu/linguistics.
 
 Northwestern University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer, and
 applications from minority and women candidates are especially welcome. The
 fellowship is open to non-US citizens, as long as the necessary permit to work
 in the US is in hand prior to September 1, 2005.
