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 at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been
set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

including: second language acquisition, pedagogy and the use of technology
in support of these domains. The fellowship is for a twelve-month period,
beginning at a mutually agreed upon date between July 1 and Sept 1, 2007.
Associated with the University's Language Research Centre (LRC) and
collaborating with a wide variety of units studying second language
phenomena, the Fellowship holder will be expected to undertake an
appropriate research programme in the domain of Language Learning and

and constituting one of its areas of international prominence.
The purpose of the fellowship is to provide an opportunity for scholars who
have recently completed doctoral studies to pursue scholarly research. The
post-doctoral fellow will have an office in the LRC and will have the use
of the University's Library facilities. They will be expected to share
their research in a public lecture and to involve themselves in the
community of scholars working at the LRC in a variety of languages. The
Fellowship offers the possibility of work in a multi-disciplinary context
with a team of researchers committed to both theoretical and applied
research in an area central to the development of a multicultural society
and in a context strongly supportive of second language acquisition.
The Fellowship holder will also be expected to participate in one or more
LRC projects and events, decided in conjunction with the LRC.
