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

Tenure-Track Assistant Professor Position in Chinese Linguistics at The
Ohio State University.

The Ohio State University's Department of East Asian Languages and
Literatures (DEALL) seeks candidates for a tenure-track position in Chinese
linguistics at the rank of Assistant Professor, starting Autumn 2011. Field
of specialization is syntax (or syntax-semantics interface), with secondary
interests in such areas as dialect studies and/or discourse analysis
(broadly construed). Native or near-native command of Mandarin Chinese is
required, and knowledge of one or more other Chinese dialects would be
highly desirable. The successful candidate joins one of the most
comprehensive and dynamic departments in East Asian languages in the U.S.,
and will share with another faculty member the responsibility of
maintaining the full set of course offerings in the department's vibrant
M.A. and Ph.D. program in Chinese linguistics. The individual will also
assist in undergraduate-level courses in Chinese linguistics and Chinese
culture, both existing and new courses that support the department's
mission. S/he will have opportunities to develop new directions in
linguistics course offerings, including potential linguistics courses that
connect with other DEALL faculty members' research and teaching of
localized cultures from different perspectives and disciplines. Research
opportunities also exist for interdisciplinary connections with numerous
colleagues in other fields at Ohio State (e.g., linguistics, cognitive
science, education, etc.). The successful candidate will be expected to be
active in research and publication, to meet standard departmental teaching
requirements and to perform service duties as required by the department
and the university. A Ph.D. is required at the time of appointment. 

Interested applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum
vitae, publications and/or writing samples, and three letters of
recommendation to the application address below (Email: chan.9 at osu.edu.
