Jobs: Syntax: Asst Prof, Northwestern University
Editor for this issue: Svetlana Aksenova
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 Department of Linguistics at Northwestern University invites applications for a tenure-line

We are looking for candidates with primary research and teaching interests in syntax and its
interface with other areas of linguistics. Candidates with demonstrated research and teaching
strengths in computational linguistics and/or psycholinguistics are especially encouraged to apply.
The ideal candidate will have analyzed primary data (e.g., experimental data, field data, or natural
language corpora) in order to address theoretical issues. Preference will be given to individuals
whose research interests mesh with those of the present faculty and who will contribute to the
department's active role in interdisciplinary research and teaching initiatives. Although we expect
to hire at the rank of assistant professor, more senior candidates may also be considered.
Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in linguistics or a related field by the start date.
To receive full consideration, applications should arrive in the department by December 1, 2006.
Please send a CV (indicating an e-mail address), statements of research and teaching interests,
