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.

researchers and Ph.D. students with other sources of funding are also
associated with the center, such that it consists today of about 40

Our primary research activity is within generative grammar, especially
syntax and phonology. The ideal applicant should be working generally in
the area of the syntax-semantics interface, with expertise in both modern
generative syntactic theory and formal semantics. Preference will be given
to applicants whose research interacts closely with those of CASTL senior
researchers, including but not confined to topics such as tense, aspect,
modality, argument structure, nominal reference, scalar structure, the
representation of space, and the representation of events.
