LINGUIST List 20.1629

Tue Apr 28 2009

Jobs: Typology: PhD Student, MPI EVA, Leipzig, Germany

Editor for this issue: Matthew Lahrman <mattlinguistlist.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 dissertation research should be in the area of language typology, with

The doctoral fellow should already have an MA in Linguistics or an
equivalent qualification, and be either registered or qualified to register

not award degrees.) Applicants should have previous experience in language
typology (experience in statistical methods and handling of databases is
desirable). Good knowledge of English is required.
