Editor for this issue: Bethany Townsend
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.

project. The Foundation welcomes innovatory procedures for recruiting
international scholars to Denamrk. Applications are thus invited for a
position as a post doc at the LANCHART Centre (www.lanchart.dk). The post
doc will take up her or his work on the 1st of January 2008 and the

Applicants must commit to carrying out a specific project involving the
data collected by the LANCHART Centre. The centre has collected spoken
language material from six sites in Denmark. The material is overwhelmingly
Danish although there are also numerous recordings with Turkish speaking
It is, however, neither a precondition for applying nor being hired that
the applicant has any previous knowledge of Danish. The Centre invites
applications from international scholars on all aspects of spoken language
stressing the need for methodologically innovative approaches to working
with large corpora of spoken materials. The Centre will select the best
qualified candidate on the basis of the material delivered for evaluation
(cf. below). Please note that we may need to interview a short list of
candidates. Interviews will take place at the beginning of December 2007.
