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 http://linguistlist.org/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

 Building on its existing strengths in applications of linguistics and language
 technology, the Department of Chinese, Translation and Linguistics is developing
 new teaching and research initiatives related to intelligent applications of

 issues arising in all aspects of community life, including professional and
 workplace, administrative, legal, educational and clinical.  In terms of
 research, our goal is to develop computational tools, corpora and other general

 undergraduate and postgraduate levels, including BA, MA, MPhil and PhD required.  
 
 Requirements: A PhD in linguistics, preferably with expertise in functional
 approaches to grammar and discourse.  Experience in the comparative analysis of
 at least two languages (preferably Chinese, and either English, Japanese or
 Korean) required.  Applicants with a proven record of publications or strong
 research potential preferred.  
 
 Salary and Conditions of Service: Salary offered will be highly competitive and
 commensurate with qualifications and experience.  Appointment will be on a
 fixed-term gratuity-bearing contract.  Fringe benefits include annual leave, medical
 and dental schemes.  Provision of housing benefit is under review.
