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 English Language Institute at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, is
inviting applications for a postdoctoral research fellowship in corpus
linguistics and second language acquisition. The position is for one year
in the first instance, with a starting date between September and November,

Applicants should be well-versed in corpus-linguistic methodology, and will
be expected to assist with corpus analysis as well as corpus design and
compilation. Additionally, ideal candidates should have expertise in second
language acquisition (or possibly psycholinguistics), particularly with
regard to the acquisition of vocabulary, phraseology, collocation, pattern
grammar, construction grammar, or pragmatics.

In accordance with ELI tradition, we are seeking a candidate who is
interested in creating corpus-based resources (including multi-modal
corpora) for the linguistic research community as well as for teachers and
students world-wide. Furthermore, the candidate would be encouraged to use
ELI corpora, such as MICASE (the Michigan Corpus of Academic Spoken
English) and MICUSP (the Michigan Corpus of Upper-level Student Papers,
currently under development), as a basis for developing EAP teaching and
testing materials.

To apply, please send CV and cover letter emphasizing relevant background,
including contact information for two references. For additional
information or informal inquiries, please contact Dr. Ute Römer or Dr. Nick
C. Ellis at ncellisumich.edu. We welcome both U.S. and international
