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 University of Maryland Center for Advanced Study of Language (CASL),

results in improved performance on language tasks relevant to the work of
government language professionals. Work done at the center focuses on

professionals - to improve their performance.

Candidates must have an earned PhD in Linguistics, Chinese Studies or a
related field with a focus on Chinese, a record of individual research
achievement in Chinese language and linguistics, and a strong record of
publication. The center is seeking people who will play a leading role in
the strategic direction of CASL and will participate in multiple research
projects in their field. Candidates' research and publications should
demonstrate the ability to conduct complex, interdisciplinary research and
to work collaboratively with a range of institutions and researchers.
Appointments to CASL are as a research faculty member of the University of
Maryland. Exceptional candidates with national standing may be considered

to availability of tenure lines in relevant departments.
