Editor for this issue: Catherine Adams
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.

success of the department's research and teaching missions.

and/or undergraduate student-scholars, a normal teaching load of 4 courses
per year, and departmental and/or university service. Salary is
competitive, and commensurate with abilities and experience. The University
of Utah offers a generous benefits package and research support.
