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

A position for a PostDoc (salary equivalent BAT IIa) is available in
the NLP group at EML Research starting as soon as possible.
Applications from highly motivated PhD students (salary equivalent BAT
IIa/2) are also welcomed.
The successful candidate will be working in a project dealing with
mining and creating lexical semantic resources for NLP applications.
The goal of the project is to turn Wikipedia into a resource which can
be effectively embedded into existing NLP applications.
Candidates should have a strong background in computational
linguistics and possess a PhD, a Masters or a Diploma degree in either
computational linguistics, computer science or linguistics. Knowledge
about ontologies, including their formal properties and their use in
NLP applications such as question answering, text summarization,
information extraction or information retrieval is a plus. Strong
programming skills (mainly in Java and Perl) are also required. The
appointment will be initially for two years. An extension for another
two years is possible subject to further funding.
EML Research gGmbH is a private non-profit research laboratory
dedicated to basic and applied research in IT with a focus on
bioinformatics and natural language processing. The NLP group is an
interdisciplinary research group that works on applications in the
area of discourse and dialogue. Our research interests include
anaphora resolution, lexical semantics, text generation and automatic
summarization (see http://www.eml-research.de/nlp).

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $52,932. This money will go to help keep the
List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.
See below for donation instructions, and don't forget to check out our Fund Drive 2006
LINGUIST List Cruise for some Fund Drive fun!
There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!
You can donate right now using our secure credit card form.
Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later.
For all information on donating and pledging, including information on how to donate by
check, money order, or wire transfer, please visit:
The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment
to check if your company operates such a program.
Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
