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

We are pleased to announce the availability of a one-year Visiting
Assistant Professorship in Computational Linguistics at Georgetown
University for the academic year 2005-6. The faculty member will teach 5
courses during the year in subjects such as Computational Grammar
Formalisms, Formal Foundations of Linguistics (Mathematical Methods), and
Statistical Natural Language Processing. The course-load allows for
co-teaching with other Georgetown faculty. S/he will also mentor MS and PhD
students, and assist in reviewing applications to the program. Salary will
range from $55,000 to $65,000, depending on qualifications.

Computational Linguistics (CLI) at Georgetown, established in connection
with Georgetown's pioneering research in the 1950's in Russian-English
machine translation, offers a novel, theory-based, technology-aware program
of study which prepares students for teaching and research in linguistics
and computational disciplines as well as research and development positions
in the field of information technology. Georgetown's CLI program is
situated within our large and diverse Linguistics department and provides
points of articulation with other areas of linguistics study. The CLI
program is closely tied to its sister concentration in Theoretical
Linguistics, with overlapping student and faculty interests and activities
in these two programs. For more information about the Computational
Linguistics program at Georgetown, please see:
