The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, 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.

Allocation, or other topic modeling techniques)
- Machine learning techniques (supervised, unsupervised, semi-
supervised)
- Clustering, classification, or regression analyses (support vector
machines, Bayesian classifiers, Kernel methods, Hidden Markov models)
- Communication and network analyses (social network analysis,
epidemiological modeling)
- Non-parametric learning techniques
- Information extraction and retrieval
- Cognitive modeling
- Application and evaluation of technologies that utilize NLP technologies
