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.

University Press. CeLCAR will provide the developers with compensation in
line with qualifications and as benchmarks are met. Successful applicants
will also be expected to participate as instructors in IU's well-known 8
weeks intensive summer program, and participate in pre- and post-session

Developers must be self-motivated and able to meet strict project deadlines

audio-visual materials for inclusion in the textbook, and English editing
and polishing.

Applicants must be native speakers of Kazakhstan Kazakh with linguistic or

and TOEFL scores of 500 or equivalent. Proposals should include: a
curriculum vita, a description of the proposed textbook including design
principles and rationale, a draft scope and sequence for the first four
