Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

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


Thank you for your support,

Christy Bird
