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 University of Kentucky seeks a linguist specializing in the
computational modeling of language systems (phonological, morphological,
syntactic and/or semantic). Teaching responsibilities will be entirely
within the University's interdepartmental Linguistics Program and will
include courses at the introductory, advanced undergraduate, and graduate

The University of Kentucky's Linguistics Program is a research-active
environment with a history of synergy between linguistics and computer
science; existing research groups focus on morphological theory & typology
and on minority languages. See www.as.uky.edu/linguistics. The University
provides generous start-up funding, funds for research and travel, and the
possibility of negotiated course releases.
