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.

A research position for a Postdoctoral Researcher is available in the
research group 'Information structure, syntax and typology', headed by Dr.
Robert Van Valin, at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics
(Nijmegen, NL). The position is now open. The appointment is initially for
2 years, with possible extension for up to 3 additional years.
Research Focus: The research group 'Information structure, syntax and
typology' represents a collaboration between the Max Planck Institute for
Psycholinguistics and the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, supported
by a Max Plank Fellowship to Van Valin. The group will investigate the
interaction of information structure and syntax across languages of varying
structural types. Special emphasis will be placed on the role information
structure plays in the organization of grammatical constructions and in
core grammatical processes, and how it varies across languages. In
addition, the implications of this interaction for language acquisition, in
conjunction with the Information Structure project in the Language
Acquisition Group, and for sentence-processing will be explored.
Requirements: Applicants should have a PhD in Linguistics, and in-depth
research experience on a language or language family is highly desirable.
Review of applications will begin February 2, 2009, and the position will
remain open until filled.
The Max Planck Society is an equal opportunity employer.
Applicants should send a cover letter describing their research interests,
in particular with reference to Information structure, their CV, a sample
