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 http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set 
up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Williams College invites applications for a two-year Mellon Postdoctoral
Fellowship in Linguistics, to begin in the fall of 2007, preferably with a
specialization in anthropological linguistics, psycholinguistics,
semantics, sociolinguistics, and/or syntax, although other specializations
may be considered.  New Ph.D.s are encouraged to apply.

The successful candidate will have an appointment in the Linguistics
Program and will teach one course per semester, including lower-level
courses such as Introduction to Linguistics and upper-level courses from
his or her area of specialization.  The successful candidate will also
advise students conducting research in Linguistics.

The Mellon Fellows at Williams are included in the activities of the
Linguistics Program and of the Center for Foreign Languages, Literatures,
and Cultures as regular junior faculty members.  They work closely with a
faculty mentor; they participate in Williams' Project in Effective
Teaching; and they receive feedback on pedagogical skills and teaching
effectiveness through our standard evaluation procedures.

The fellowship includes a salary of $36,000 plus benefits and funds to
support research and travel.  Applicants must be citizens or permanent
residents of the United States, or expect to pursue a teaching career in
the United States.

Please submit a letter of application, c.v., a graduate school transcript,
three letters of recommendation, and a brief description of teaching
interests. Review of applications will begin on January 31, 2007 and
