Editor for this issue: Xiyan Wang <xiyanlinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Web Address: http://ets.pereless.com/83080/internships.html

Type of Work: Lang Materials Development

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
                            Text/Corpus Linguistics

Duration: 09-Jul-2012 to 17-Aug-2012
Compensation: Paid: Interns are paid $25/hour
Internship Location: Princeton, New Jersey, USA
Minimum Education Level: BA
Special Qualifications: All interns must have excellent writing skills. The work requires verbal precision and sensitivity to nuance, analytic skill, attention to detail, and receptiveness to instruction. Interns must have a very high degree of fluency in English but do not need to be native speakers, nor do they need to be U.S. citizens. TOEFL, TOEIC, and K-12 English language assessments are global measures, so ETS actively seeks candidates who can bring diverse experiences and perspectives to the work. The ELL summer internship workforce includes undergraduate students, graduate students, and teachers.

JOB RESPONSIBILITIES & REQUIREMENTS: ELL interns will produce materials for use on large-scale, high-stakes standardized tests of English language proficiency. Such work might include writing questions that test knowledge of grammar, vocabulary, and reading comprehension; creating conversations and talks that test listening comprehension; and developing scenarios and prompts that allow test takers to demonstrate their writing and speaking skills. Interns will work on one section (one skill) of one test: Test of English as a Foreign LanguageTM (TOEFL®), Test of English for International CommunicationTM (TOEIC®), or K-12 language assessments. Six test sections are hiring for summer 2012, and there will be multiple hires for each section. The work is intellectually challenging and rewarding.

Application Deadline: 25-Mar-2012
