Jobs: Lang Acq; Lang Attrition: PhD/Post Doc Positions, U of Groningen

Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.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.

S. Schmid. The program examines to what extent second language learners can
attain fully native-like representations of grammatical gender, and what
the role of their own language background and the age at which they started
acquiring the L2 is in this respect. In order to shed more light on this
question, migrants who have lived in an environment where a non-gender
language is spoken are also investigated. The project will employ
neurocognitive experimental techniques (ERPs and eyetracking) as well as
