Editor for this issue: Catherine Adams
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 at Northwestern University invites
applications for a full-time non-renewable Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship
funded through a grant to the University from the Andrew W. Mellon
Foundation. The fellowship is for a period of two academic years, beginning
September 1, 2008. In accordance with the fellowship guidelines, all
requirements for the PhD must be completed prior to the start of the
fellowship period. We are seeking recent PhDs in any subfield of
linguistics who have analyzed primary data (e.g., experimental data, field
data, or natural language corpora) in order to address theoretical issues.
Salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications. The position
also provides funds for computer facilities and professional travel. Mellon
postdoctoral fellows are expected to participate fully in Northwestern's
interdisciplinary research environment, teach a one-quarter lecture course
and a one-quarter seminar per year, and present one colloquium per year.
For fullest consideration, candidates should ensure that their application
arrives in the Department before December 1, 2007. Applications by email
will not be accepted. The application should include the candidate's CV
(indicating an email address), statements of research and teaching
interests, teaching evaluations (if available), and reprints or other
written work. (Finalists will be asked to submit a copy of the
dissertation, or completed portions thereof, at a later date; it is not
necessary to do so at this time.) Candidates should arrange to have 3-4
letters of reference sent directly to the search committee by the
application deadline; if possible, one of the letters should specifically
address the applicant's teaching qualifications.
Send all materials to the Department of Linguistics at the address given
below. Email inquiries should be directed to mellonling.northwestern.edu.
Northwestern University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
Employer, and applications from minority and women candidates are
especially welcome. The fellowship is open to non-US citizens, as long as
the necessary permit to work in the US is in hand prior to September 1, 2008.
Application Deadline: 01-Dec-2007
