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 Amsterdam Centre for Language and Communication (ACLC) focuses on the
description and explanations for variation in languages and language use.
Despite their enormous variety, languages show a remarkable degree of
similarity, which can be described in terms of a set of language
universals. A key feature of the ACLC approach is that these universals are
studied from the widest possible variety of perspectives, both descriptive
and theoretical, in order to ensure that the findings are not accidental,
but are truly representative of the basic parameters that govern the
organization of natural languages. The ACLC includes both functional and
formal approaches to language description and encourages dialogue between
these approaches. Studies cover all aspects of speech and languages:
phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics - in a
search for the Language Blueprint. Language typology, including that of
creole and signed languages, plays an important part in the ACLC programme.
Language variation in terms of time, space and context is also a
specialisation. The study of variation in the different types of language
user - from the child learning her first language to the adult second
language learner including also different types of language pathology - is
a clear focus.
There are 4 PhD positions with a duration of 3 years available as of
September 1st, 2008. See the ACLC website (listed above) under Vacancies
