Jobs: Psycholinguistics: Post Doc, U of Maryland

Editor for this issue: Vanessa Manion <vanessalinguistlist.org>

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. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

testing facilities are currently being added. Lab members have also
conducted fMRI and PET studies through local collaborations. CNL Lab
faculty include Colin Phillips, David Poeppel, Andrea Zukowski, Amy

theoretical and computational linguistics. Initial appointment is for 1
year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year. Anticipated
