The LINGUIST List is proud of the resources we make available to our users- from those newly interested in linguistics to professional linguists. Of all of these, the Jobs area is one of our most popular resources and we need your help to keep this service going. Please donate at:
With nearly 10,500 jobs posted since 1990, we are the premier source for academic and professional positions in linguistics. The first year, we posted 4 jobs, and thanks to your support, we posted over 700 in 2011. Please help us continue to provide this service by donating here: (even $5 helps!)
Our Jobs area has evolved with the field of linguistics; our job listings include a wide variety of positions that encompass diverse areas of research, both commercial and academic. We make these job postings available for free in a number of ways. Readers can access job announcements through our website (http://linguistlist.org/jobs/browse-job-current-rs-1.html), subscribe to our listserv or RSS (http://linguistlist.org/LL/subs-index.cfm) or follow us on Twitter (http://twitter.com/linguistlistjob).
To better serve job seekers, we have developed a browseable web interface that allows users to view the most recent posted jobs and to sort this listing by employer name, location, rank/title of the position, linguistic specialty, or application deadline. This allows users to quickly access and view the information they are looking for. Jobs seekers can also search for jobs with specific criteria using our search function. Here they can select job rank, location, linguistics subfield, and/or language to narrow their results, allowing them to see only the jobs matching their description. Our jobs pages are some of the most frequently visited on the vast LINGUIST List site, with over 21,000 unique page views in just one week.
Many of you have may have used our service to post or find a job, and many more of you will use this service in the coming year. Please donate to our Fund Drive to help us continue posting these jobs! Any amount will help, so whether you can give $5 or $50, please visit

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact
your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
