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.

accounting for the occurring phenomena of transfer.

The position is part-time and gives the researchers the opportunity of
doing a Ph.D. Beginning: August/September 1, 2005 (until June 30, 2008).

Applicants should have a University Degree in Germanic linguistics
(Scandinavian or any other Germanic language/s) or in General linguistics,
preferably with emphasis on sociolinguistics and/or language
contact/multilingualism. For this position native speaker competence in
Danish is absolutely indispensable. Furthermore, applicants should have
good knowledge of English and/or German.

It is the policy of the University of Hamburg to encourage women to apply
