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.

The Spanish Ministry of Science & Education (MEC) has published two calls
for applications for junior research positions for 2005-06: the Ramon y
Cajal program (PhDs who obtained their PhD degree 10 years ago max.) and
the Juan de la Cierva (PhDs who obtained their PhD degree 3 years ago
max.). The prerequisits for the candidates and the conditions of the
contracts are described in the following pages of MEC (Spanish and
English) and Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF)(Catalan) and are summarized
on the DTF webpage (, link at page top):

Prerequisites & conditions Ramon y Cajal: (in Spanish & English) (in Catalan)
Prerequisites & conditions Juan de la Cierva: (in Spanish & English) (in Catalan)

The Department of Translation and Philology (DTF) at Universitat Pompeu
Fabra plans on being able to incorporate TWO Ramon y Cajal researchers
working on the areas covered by the Department. DTF hosts the following
research groups, one of which the successful Ramon y Cajal candidates should join:
- Translation, Reception, and Literature
- Centre for the Study of Translation and Discourse (CEDIT)
- Discourse Studies Group (GED)
- Research Group on Language Learning and Language Teaching (GREL)
- Research Group on the Adquisition of Enviromental Languages (ReGAEL)
- Formal Linguistics Research Group (GLIF)
- Computational Linguistics Research Group (GLICOM)

Applications are done directly through the MEC webpage indicated above
(though the application must be printed later and submitted, along with
enclosures, in one of the specified manners). The selection process is
carried out entirely by MEC. Candidates endorsed by MEC will then be able
to opt for one of the two positions offered by DTF. The deadline for
submission is April 2, 2005. For additional information, see (link at top of page) or contact Enric Vallduví
(; no accents or capitals). If you plan on
submitting an application and are interested in joining DTF, please let
us know through the above address.

The Department of Translation and Philology will also welcome applications from
Juan de la Cierva junior researchers. Their applications and their research must
be connected to one of the following research projects (each project may endorse
only one candidate):
- Integrated architecture for advanced text processing (ARQUITEXT). P.I.:
Toni Badia
- Design and impact of tools for the development of strategic competence in the
learning of foreign languages in a university context (DEICOMECU). P.I.: Olga Esteve
-The 'Stay-abroad Factor' in the acquisition of a foreign language (English).
Short term effects and success variables. Contrast to formal instruction. P.I.:
Carmen Pérez
- Noncanonical constructions in oral discourse: a comparative study (NOCANDO).
P.I.: Enric Vallduví

Candidates interested in a Juan de la Cierva contract should contact the
principal investigator of the relevant project immediately
(; no accents or capitals), since the actual application is
submitted by UPF. The P.I. must have received all relevant documents (some in
hard copy, some in soft copy; see call info) by March 29, 2005 (before 11:00AM).
