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.

University invites applications for a two year full-time postdoctoral position in
English linguistics with a strong computational focus.
RWTH Aachen University is one of Europe's leading institutions for science
and research and is continuously ranked among Germany's top universities.
It has been awarded funding for all three funding lines of Germany's
Excellence Initiative. Its Institutional Strategy aims at developing the
scientific profile as an integrated, interdisciplinary, and international university
of technology. English linguistics is part of this vibrant environment fostering
The position is located in the group of Stella Neumann. We are a young and
dynamic team that conducts research in all areas of computer-oriented
English linguistics with an emphasis on functional approaches. Research
topics include English for Specific Purposes, interfaces between regional and
functional variation and multilingual text production. Our corpus-based
research focuses on multi-layer corpus annotation including the annotation of
non-canonical language, i.e. non-native, non-standard language as well as
intermediate versions during text production. In addition, we closely cooperate
with psycholinguists in combined corpus-based and experimental studies.
The new member of the team is expected to conduct research in line with the
group's research topics. Prerequisites are a PhD degree either in English
linguistics or related fields with a proven record of experience in computer-
oriented research or in computational linguistics with a strong focus on
(English) linguistics. We expect a solid background and experience in
advanced corpus-based methods; programming skills are desirable. Since
one of the tasks will be applying for third party funding prior experience in
successful proposal writing is a plus. A good command of English and fair
knowledge of German are mandatory.
The position involves four hours of teaching per term, participation in
administrative duties, and supervision of students.
Salary: according to German scale TV-L system (level 13)
Duration: two years with a possible extension, part-time employment may be
Starting date: 01 April 2011
Applications should include a statement of research and teaching interests,
CV, list of publications and copies of academic degree certificates.
RWTH Aachen University has been certified as a 'Family Friendly University'.

qualification, ability and professional achievement, preference will be given to
female applicants unless reasons specific to an individual candidate tilt the
balance in his favour. The University positively welcomes applications from
suitably qualified disabled people.
