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.

Specialty Areas: Computational Linguistics; Formal Languages


Umea University, Sweden, has announced a two-year postdoctoral research
position in the group Natural and Formal Language (NFL) at the Department
of Computing Science. Candidates for this position should have an interest
in formal language theory and its application to problems in computational
linguistics and language technology, including techniques to process and
map formally defined languages such as XML, logic, etc. The exact wording
of the announcement can be found at


Umea University offers a pleasant, cooperative and relatively unconstrained
environment in which you can pursue your own research goals. We are
particularly interested in applicants who have earned their doctorates
within the past five years who can convincingly describe their own
perspective and research program, and in doing so relate it to the research
interests described in the announcement. As tree automata play a central
role in our work, candidates with research interests related to the theory
or application of tree automata have an advantage. However, we emphasize
that researchers with other interests in the broad area of natural and
formal languages are also welcome to apply.

See the announcement for detailed information on how to apply. If you feel
uncertain about whether or not it would be meaningful for you to apply,
please feel free to contact Frank Drewes.  He will also be glad to answer
any other kind of question regarding the announcement or the application
