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.

The General Linguistics Department at the University of Zurich invites
applications for a postdoctoral researcher in a EuroBABEL
(http://www.esf.org/index.php?id=4632) project. The project focuses on the
typological distribution of referential effects on agreement systems in
comparison to case systems and other aspects of grammatical relations
(http://www.rhim.uni-koeln.de, IP Leipzig/Zurich). The successful candidate
will work in close cooperation with our project team and can build upon
typological databases that the team developed in the past. Applicants must
have completed a Ph.D. thesis in linguistics, should be familiar with
typological research and have an excellent command of (academic) English
(fluency in German is desirable but not necessary).

Terms of employment: the position is funded for one year at 100%
employment, with a salary according to experience and qualifications in
line with University of Zurich regulations. (Less than 100% but longer
employment is negotiable but disprefered.) A possible extension depends on
future grant acquisitions and budgetary developments.

Starting date: as soon as possible, and not later than November 1, 2011

Applications must be in PDF format and include a curriculum vitae as well
as a cover letter summarizing previous research. Applicants should also
arrange for one letter of reference to be sent directly to the address
below (preferably by e-mail and no later than the application deadline).

Application Deadline: 21-Aug-2011
