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

The DEAWU ('dealing with uncertainty') project (two full-time Post-Docs) is
working on methods for improving the treatment of understanding problems in
spoken dialogue systems. The visiting researchers would be expected to have
extensive experience in the field of computational dialogue research (e.g., spoken
dialogue systems; pragmatics of dialogue; symbolic or statistical approaches to
dialogue), and will help shape the research done in the group, provide feedback

teach a short seminar at the host institution.
The positions are for 4 months each, with exact dates being flexible (sometime
between January 2006 and December 2007; shorter or longer durations may also be
possible). The fellowship is remunerated in the form of a generous stipend,
with additional 'monthly mobility allowance' and other travel costs being covered.
