================================================================  

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.

Description:

Varieties and Determinants of Absorption in Narrative Film

Film viewers typically exhibit high degrees of absorption in the film's
story world including events and characters. As yet there is no
satisfactory definition of what state of mind absorption in film viewing
exactly is and what factors account for it. The project aims at obtaining
an understanding of the experiential states involved and their determinants
with an emphasis on stimulus factors. To this end, firstly questionnaires
for a variety of absorption-like states will be validated. Validation will
involve a comparison with on-line measures of cognitive and emotional
processing. Secondly a set of experiments will be carried out in which test
films have been manipulated on the basis of available theories of (literary
and filmic) narrative styles and procedures and their effects on (reader
and viewer) experiences. The experimental materials will be manufactured in
collaboration with film and story authors. The project is highly
interdisciplinary. The successful candidate will need to couple knowledge
of cognitive models of narrative discourse processing and a demonstrable
affinity with film and literary theory with experience in psychological
(on-line) experimentation. Affinity with video production or editing is a
recommendation. For details and an extensive project description see:
