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.

neuroscience of language. The research is currently funded by the Human
Frontiers Science Program. The person will be involved in all aspects of
the design, testing and analysis of studies of language comprehension in
adults, using behavioral and neuroscientific techniques, especially ERP and
MEG brain recordings (training provided). The research spans the
phonological, syntactic, and semantic levels. Previous experience in
linguistics and/or psycholinguistics is preferred. The ability to interact
comfortably with a wide variety of people (and machines) is a distinct

of over 40 faculty, students and research staff, engaged in research on a
wide variety of areas of language, ranging from acoustics to semantics, in
children and adults, normal and disordered populations, and covering around
10 languages. The lab has facilities for behavioral testing of children and
adults, two eye-tracking labs, a high-density ERP lab and a whole-head MEG
facility. The lab is affiliated with the Departments of Linguistics
and Biology, and with the Neuroscience and Cognitive Science Program.
To apply, please contact Drs Poeppel, Phillips, or Lidz by email.
