Editor for this issue: Catherine Adams <catherinlinguistlist.org>

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.

Bangor is now established as a centre for the study of language and we are
seeking two senior posts to further our research and teaching. They will be
based in the School of Linguistics (www.bangor.ac.uk/linguistics), which
together with the psycholinguists in our 5* School of Psychology, and
language expertise in our School of Education, have established the
ESRC-funded Centre for Research on Bilingualism (2007-11, £5.2M). At least
one of these two posts will bring bilingual expertise and be formally
associated with the Centre.

Successful candidates for one post will have an international profile in
bilingualism, and for the other, in any area of linguistics including
bilingualism, phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics,
sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics and applied linguistics. They will have
research outputs of the highest quality and a track record of grant
capture. Experience in a managerial role would also be an advantage. We aim
to appoint two highly motivated academics with strong leadership skills and
with proven ability to secure research funding.
