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 Language, Cognition and Development Lab of the International School of
Advanced Studies - SISSA, Trieste, Italy - is offering two positions.
The laboratory is directed by Professor Jacques Mehler who just obtained an
Advanced Grant from the European Research Council. The grant will be
financing the laboratory for the next five years.
1) An advanced developmental scientist interested in language acquisition.
Experience with very young infants and/or neonates would be desirable as
well as Neuroimaging experience using NIRS and ERP.
2) An experimental cognitive scientist with experience working with both
adults and infants. Her/his interest should be in language and cognition.
Both positions require ability to use one or more of the following tools:
Psyscope, MatLab, NIRS, TOBii.
Our laboratory has the state of the art systems to study language
acquisition. We test neonates in our laboratory located at a large
maternity, and a laboratory to study infants from 2 months to 18 months of
age. Infants are tested with behavioral methods using head turning methods,
eye-tracking methods, EEG and ERPs.
