Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.org>

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.

A Research Assistantship is available on the ESRC-funded project

تباين التنغيم في اللهجات العربية

The IVAr project will create a corpus of Arabic speech recordings in which
speakers record a parallel set of sentences, stories and conversations. A
basic dataset will be collected with 18-24 year olds in five regions of the
Arab world, and in two of these regions an in-depth survey will collect
additional data with older speakers (50+) and in neighbouring cities.
Prosodic transcription of the intonation patterns observed in the corpus
will provide the basis for publication of descriptions of the typical
intonation patterns in individual dialects, and comparisons among them.

You will conduct fieldwork, undertake both quantitative auditory/acoustic
phonetic and qualitative data analysis (to include prosodic transcription
in the Autosegmental- Metrical framework), and participate in the
dissemination of findings. You will hold or will have submitted (prior to
commencement of employment) a PhD in phonetics and/or phonology and you
