The Research Division at Educational Testing Service is seeking Research

a program that is also rapidly evolving, as we move towards assessments
that are diagnostic and that support the learning of English.

We are seeking several outstanding individuals to take part in a
comprehensive program of research that will strengthen these programs. 
Research projects will include the development of new kinds of measures
and validation studies of assessments and instructional systems. 

Qualifications include a Ph.D. in linguistics or an allied field, with
an emphasis on language proficiency assessment. Applicants should have
a documented interest in research in the measurement of language
proficiency, with a strong record of research and publications,
excellent writing and oral skills, and a demonstrated expertise in
