The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, 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.

Linguist consultant needed for a Kinyarwanda curriculum development
project. Speak Africa, LLC has developed and published two Kinyarwanda
products for travelers; a phrase book and basic audio lessons. See the
website for more information.

Our customers are asking for more advanced Kinyarwanda lessons. Most of
our customers are humanitarian aid workers or Christian missionaries, but
some are travel tourists to Rwanda.

We are seeking a linguist who is available on a contract basis and who is
qualified to help us design more extensive language learning lessons. We
envision that the advanced lessons will be presented through a combination
of audio, text and video images, delivered in mp4 format with companion
downloadable pdf materials.

Experience in Bantu languages is desired but not required. This project is
estimated to take 12-15 hours per week for 12-16 weeks, with more hours in
the early weeks. We are located in Portland, Oregon, but we are open to
working with the a consultant located in another area.

Compensation to be negotiated based on qualifications. We also have access
to volunteer student interns from Portland State University. We also have
several Kinyarwanda native speakers in Portland to consult on this project,
as well as a library of Kinyarwanda resources.

in this project.
