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

The Department of Linguistics and Language Development at SJSU offers a BA
and MA in Linguistics and an MA in TESOL. It is currently looking for a
linguist to teach courses in computational linguistics, as well as to teach
undergraduate and graduate courses in linguistics to students in the above
programs and in general education courses. The normal teaching load is four
three-unit courses per semester plus advising and committee work (which
includes student recruitment). The department is in the process of
obtaining permission to establish the SJSU Center for Human Language
Technology, an Organized Research Unit, which could provide course
reduction to develop activities of the center. Faculty members could also
reduce their teaching load by successfully applying for and securing grants
from on-campus and/or outside agencies.
A pattern of demonstrated excellence in teaching and continued scholarly,
professional activity, including publications in refereed venues, and fund
raising/grant activity, will be required for tenure and promotion.
Candidate must address the needs of a student population of great diversity
- in age, cultural background, ethnicity, primary language and academic
preparation - through course materials, teaching strategies and advisement.
Commensurate with qualifications and experience.
