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.
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 English Language and Literature at NUS invites applications for the posts of
Assistant Professor or Visiting Fellow. Applicants should be able to teach a wide area in
Linguistics, with preferred specializations in Sociolinguistics and/or Psycholinguistics.
Applicants should have a PhD in Linguistics, a sound record of international publications in their
fields of specialization, and a commitment to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
As the posts are in the Department of English Language, they will be expected to teach
foundational modules in sociolinguistics and linguistic theory, drawing on data primarily from
English. The ideal candidate with a sociolinguistics specialization should be prepared to teach
areas such as World Englishes, multilingualism, and language policy as well as the more
traditional 'variationist' paradigm at the undergraduate level. The ideal candidate with a
specialization in psycholinguistics should be able to teach areas such as language and cognition,
and language acquisition at the undergraduate level. All candidates should have the potential to
develop an international standing in their chosen fields.
NUS expects the highest standards of teaching and scholarship from its faculty. In return, it
offers excellent terms and conditions. There is considerable support for research, including
grants for research projects, conference money and a very well funded library. Salary will be
commensurate with experience and level of appointment.
Details of the terms can be found at : http://www.nus.edu.sg/ohr/ and of the Department at

Assistant Professor and that for a Visiting Fellow.
