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.

2 Linguist Positions, Australian National University

We are seeking two outstanding early career Linguists with a strong
fieldwork-based background, and a research program focusing on one or more
understudied languages of the Asia-Pacific Region.

We are looking to fill one continuing (Level B/C) and one fixed-term (Level
B) position.

With these appointments we wish to broaden and deepen our research in the
region. We are particularly interested in applicants who will strengthen
our collective expertise through work in one or more of the following
areas: anthropological linguistics, sociolinguistics, multilingualism,
historical linguistics, semantics, pragmatics, lexicography, language
documentation, statistical and/or computational approaches to analysing
cross-linguistic variation, typology, variationist approaches.

Applicants should have existing field experience in one or more sites of
the Pacific/Asia region or relevant field experience elsewhere and concrete
plans to develop a new field site in the Pacific/Asia region.

A substantial amount of time is available for ongoing research, and initial
set-up funding for research is available. We are seeking outstanding
early-career linguists ready to join a team with a long tradition of
responding to the scientific, humanistic and social challenges posed by
this region's extraordinary linguistic diversity.

In addition to research, these positions will apply for competitive
research funding, undertake some teaching, supervise PhD students and
contribute to administrative activities within the School and the
Department. We have a particular commitment to fieldwork-based research on
little-known languages across the region, especially in its hotspots of
fragile linguistic diversity (such as Melanesia, South Asia, and Southeast

As part of our drive to rectify historical gender imbalances in our
linguistics program, we are particularly keen to encourage highly-qualified
female applicants.
