Editor for this issue: Matthew Lahrman
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.

of both linguistics and computer

Project work interns may be involved with includes work on projects funded by
the National Science Foundation:
GOLDComm: pursued in collaboration with the University of Washington, this
project is designed to offer the average linguist access to large amounts of
structured and searchable linguistic data by further developing the General
Ontology for Linguistic Description (GOLD) and intelligent GOLD-aware searching.
MultiTree: this project will create a digital library of scholarly hypotheses
about language relationships. Each hypothesis is presented graphically as an
interactive hyperbolic display of a family tree, accompanied by information on
all of the languages involved and the authors and bibliographical sources of the
LL-MAP: Language and Location: A Map Annotation Project. This joint project of
Eastern Michigan University and Stockholm University is designed to integrate
language information with data from the physical and social sciences by means of
a Geographical Information System (GIS). The Institute for Geospatial Research
and Education (IGRE) is also helping in the project development.
LEGO: Building on previous work done in the development of the linguistics
ontology, GOLD, LEGO (Lexicon Enhancement via the GOLD Ontology) has as its goal
the development of several "building blocks" for data interoperability within
linguistics. Thus its aim is to: 1. Develop an extensive data interoperability
network of GOLD-aware lexical items drawn from sixteen different projects and
over 3000 languages; 2. Develop a set of "low-barrier" data requirements which
lexicon creators can implement in order to join the interoperability network;
and 3. Create architecture to integrate network data into frameworks developed
by major international standards initiatives.
Interns will work 40 hours a week and receive a stipend of $1200 US per month.
Housing is not provided, although LINGUIST will assist you in finding
International applicants must have a visa that permits them to work in the USA.
At this time LINGUIST List is working on trying to find a way to help applicants

Some of the past interns at LINGUIST List have opted to pursue an MA at Eastern
Michigan University and continue working at LINGUIST List as Graduate Assistants.
