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.

In addition to imitation learning the scenario forsees online processing of
action-synchronous verbal explanations. A further focus lies on the
multi-modal representation of actions that need to be handled by the
different components for dialog modelling, action perception and action
We are looking for a researcher who is motivated to take an
