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 Amsterdam Center for Language and Communication (ACLC) has two
four-year PhD positions available for excellent candidates with an
excellent research proposal, starting September 2010. The availability of
the second position is pending final approval of funding.
The Amsterdam Center for Language and Communication focuses on the
description and explanation of variation in language and language use. A
key feature of the ACLC approach is that linguistic phenomena are studied
from the widest possible variety of perspectives, both descriptive and
theoretical, in order to ensure that the findings are not accidental, but
are truly representative of the basic parameters that govern the
organization of natural languages. The ACLC includes both functional and
formal approaches to language description and encourages dialogue between
these approaches. Studies cover all aspects of speech and languages:
phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics.
Language typology, including that of creole and signed languages, plays an
important part in the ACLC programme. Language variation in terms of time,
space and context is another specialisation. The study of variation in the
different types of language user - from the child learning her first
language to the adult second language learner including also different
types of language pathology - is also a clear focus.
Types of application:
