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 Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University is
seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work on a new text-mining initiative
supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities. ABD candidates are
also strongly encouraged to apply. This is a grant-funded, two-year
position that is particularly appropriate for someone with interests in
computational linguistics, machine learning, or technology and the
humanities and social sciences. Specific background and experience is less
important than the ability to learn new technical skills quickly. Knowledge

JavaScript, MySQL, PHP, or object-oriented programming. Ability to work in
a team is very important. CHNM (website listed above), known for innovative
work in digital media, is located in Fairfax, Virginia, 15 miles from
Washington, DC, and is accessible by public transportation. Please send a
cover letter and resume, including relevant programming projects and
experience, to the application email listed below with subject line 'Text

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

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.
