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 Yale University invites applications for a

linguistics. Duties include both research and teaching (one course in each
semester, including an introduction to historical linguistics in Fall, 2012).

The position is partially funded through NSF grant BCS-920114 "Dynamics
of Hunter-Gatherer Language Change". This interdisciplinary project
compares language histories from Northern Australia, California and the
Great Basin, and Northern Amazonia in order to test claims about
correlates between aspects of language change and social and
demographic features. The Postdoctoral Associate will be joining the
project in the final year of the grant, and will contribute as an author to the
preparation of grant-related publications.

The successful candidate will have experience in historical reconstruction.
Preference will be given to candidates with experience in quantitative
methodologies and/or first-hand experience with languages in (or near) one
of the case study regions. Strong writing skills are essential.

The starting date for this position is July 1 or soon thereafter. Requirements
for the PhD must be completed by the start date. Review of applicants will
begin on April 2 and will continue until the position is filled. For full
consideration, by April 2 please submit to
http://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/1473 a letter of application which
addresses research experience, current research goals, teaching
experience, and how you see yourself contributing to the project; please
also submit a current CV and 2 writing samples, and arrange for two letters
of reference to be sent to http://academicjobsonline.org.

Yale University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, and
especially encourages applications from women and members of
underrepresented minorities.
