Jobs: Semantics; Countability & Pluralization: Post Doc, Laboratory EFL

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.

typologically unrelated languages, such as Mandarin Chinese, Somali or
Karitiana. His/her task will be: to help establishing and validate empirical
generalizations in the test languages; to contribute to designing experiments
that are meant to (i) ascertain the data (by testing grammaticality judgments
in an online fashion) and (ii) to evaluate competing theories; to integrate the
results of the (independently driven) psycholinguistic experiments within the
theory that will be elaborated in the project. The ideal candidate should
demonstrate previous experience on the subject, and an in-depth knowledge
of formal semantics and the syntax-semantics interface. Knowledge of one or
more of the languages involved in the project will be a plus.
