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 Department of Linguistics at the University of British Columbia,

The successful candidate should have a primary specialisation in

The successful candidate will be expected to maintain an active program of

The Department of Linguistics at the University of British Columbia offers
graduate degree programs in Linguistics and in Cognitive Systems (an
interdisciplinary program involving several other departments) and
undergraduate degree programs in Linguistics, Speech Science, First
Nations Languages & Linguistics, and Cognitive Systems. Research in the
department covers a broad range of subfields in linguistics, and
approaches these from a variety of perspectives, with particular strengths in
formal-theoretical linguistics, experimental and field linguistics, language
acquisition, and computational approaches to the study of communicative
behaviour. The department is a centre for the study of the indigenous
languages of the Americas, with a particular focus on the First Nations
languages of western Canada; there is also a long history of work on
African languages. See the department website
(http://www.linguistics.ubc.ca) for further details.
