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.

Postdoctoral Position in Computational Linguistics
'Language and Political Behavior' Northwestern University

Pending availability of funding, the Analytical Crisis and Reputation
Management group at Northwestern University is seeking to fill a
postdoctoral research position for the project 'Language and Political
Behavior.' This project brings together researchers from the Departments of
Linguistics and Managerial Economics and Decision Sciences as part of the
Northwestern Institute in Complex Systems (NICO).  Its goal is to analyze
written and spoken text in business and politics in order to detect and
trace issues and opinions, tonality of documents, and to explore the
relationship between linguistic output and voting patterns, interest group
positioning and survey data. The project also explores applications to
political and reputational risk management.

Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in Linguistics, Computer Science,
or a related area. Requirements include: (i) a solid theoretical background
and practical experience in quantitative methods in computational
linguistics and/or information retrieval; (ii) excellent programming
skills; and (iii) a strong motivation and proven ability to work and
publish collaboratively.

The position is available immediately. The initial appointment will be for
12 months, with the possibility of extension by another 12 months, subject
to performance and availability of funding. Financial compensation will be
competitive and commensurate with the candidate's qualification.

Applicants should arrange for two letters of reference to be sent directly
to the same address. For full consideration, application materials
including letters should arrive no later than January 31, 2009. For further
information, contact Stefan Kaufmann at kaufmann at northwestern.edu.

Northwestern University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
Employer, and applications from minority and women candidates are
especially welcome. Hiring is contingent upon eligibility to work in the
United States.
