Jobs: Syntax: Rank Open, Yale University

Editor for this issue: Svetlana Aksenova <svetlanalinguistlist.org>

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 Yale University hopes to make a one year

field of syntax. If the individual chosen already holds an academic

at the latest is a requirement for this position. Salary will be
commensurate with the level of the appointment and with the experience of
the individual appointed.

The appointee will be expected to teach a normal load of courses, including
a two-term basic sequence in syntax, a course in research methods in
linguistics, and a seminar devoted to some topic in syntax related to the
appointee's research. In addition, the appointee will be expected to
provide guidance to students in syntax and to participate fully in the work
of the Department.

Candidates for this position should submit a letter outlining their
background and qualifications, along with a recent CV, two or three
representative pieces of research, and the names of three potential
references to the address below. Please do NOT ask referees to provide
letters at this time. Please do not send new applications by email.
Candidates who have already applied in response to Yale's open search in
syntactic theory advertised in 2006 need only submit a letter or email
expressing interest; previously submitted materials need not be duplicated.

Consideration of applications will begin on 20 April, 2007, and continue
until an appointment is made.

Yale is an affirmative action / equal opportunity employer, and

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!
