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.

and (b) answer questions of current theoretical interest about the nature
and development of learner languages.
- To collect a corpus of AS/A level oral learner French, as well as a small
control sample of native French, for inclusion in the above-mentioned
web-based database which will then contain oral French learner data for all
levels, from beginners to undergraduates.
You will contribute to all aspects of the project; in particular, you will
play a major role in researching one (or more) areas of French syntax,
morphology or discourse in order to contribute to the substantive agenda
summarised above, and will be responsible for leading all aspects of the
fieldwork. You will hold a PhD in French Linguistics or French Applied
Linguistics, and will have some research expertise in language acquisition.
Additionally, you will have some experience of fieldwork, and will have
excellent organisational and communication skills, and native or
near-native competence in French.
