Jobs: Lang &/or Higher Cognitive Function: Group Leader/Faculty, SISSA
Editor for this issue: Bethany Townsend
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.

SISSA is one of the three purely postgraduate and postdoctoral institutions
within the Italian university system. It operates in English and the Sector
is keen to enhance its international character and its intellectual
diversity. The Sector currently has 23 PhD students supported on SISSA
fellowships, almost half of whom are not Italians. Postdocs, however, are
normally supported by individual research funding. Faculty members are
required to teach limited PhD mini-courses, and to individually supervise
the research of students in their groups. Current faculty members are
Mathew Diamond, Jacques Mehler, Raffaella Rumiati, Tim Shallice and
Alessandro Treves, with visiting professors Evan Balaban, Luca Bonatti and
Marina Nespor. Further information about the Sector can be found on the
webpage listed above.
Those interested should write to Alessandro Treves, attaching their
curriculum vitae. Receipt of CVs will be acknowledged weekly.
