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

The School of Philosophy Psychology and Language Sciences (Theoretical and
Applied Linguistics) is seeking to hire a Research Associate to work on a
one year ESRC funded project. The project requires the RA to create a
corpus of Hungarian sentences, translated into English, with relevance for
the study of information structure (topic/focus). The RA will also be
involved in the initial analysis of the data and be engaged in writing up
and presenting the results of the research.
The successful applicant will have some knowledge of Hungarian and some
experience in describing syntactic data, ideally with an open-minded
attitude to theoretical approaches to syntactic analysis. S/he will also
have completed, or be about to complete, a PhD in theoretical syntax,
semantics or pragmatics.
The Research Associate will be responsible for
- Creating a database of Hungarian sentences illustrating the focus position with
their closest English translations.
- Working with the Principal Investigators to provide theoretical analyses
of these data. (These analyses will be couched within the framework of
Dynamic Syntax, but prior knowledge of that framework is not necessary.)
- Assessing the validity of existing analyses of these data and the
theoretical claims made about them.
