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 for Computational Linguistics of the Heinrich-Heine-
Universitaet Duesseldorf, Germany (Chair of Computational Linguistics: Prof.

for Computational Linguistics. These cover the following areas:

1. data-driven parsing

(i.e., feature-structure-based) semantic composition
4. grammar formalisms, in particular (but not limited to) Tree Adjoining
Grammars

The Department for Computational Linguistics offers a rich and stimulating
research environment: It participates with several projects in the Collaborative
Research Center (CRC) 991 funded by the DFG, http://www.sfb991.uni-
duesseldorf.de/en/sfb991/. The CRC is a large collection of research projects;
it focusses on the structure of representations in language, cognition and
science with a particular emphasis on frames and on lexical semantics.
Besides the CRC projects there is also a project on parsing and machine
translation, http://www.phil-fak.uni-duesseldorf.de/beyond-cfg/.

Salary is on the German scale TV-L E13. The position is for two years. The
starting date is October 1, 2012. Applications should include the following:
