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.

Teaching and supervision of students of English linguistics at

1. A doctorate or equivalent competence, or other professional competence
that is relevant for this post;
2. Undergone training in university teaching or demonstrated equivalent

As much weight will be attached to teaching competence as to the other

Candidates who do not fulfill the requirement in point 2 shall be
considered to have done so if they can perform the duties described above
or if there are specific reasons (HF chapter 4, §7).

Basis for Judging Requirements:
The competence level required for the post will be used as the basis for

discourse analysis. Also required are records of experience of course
development and teaching, especially supervision of degree theses both at
undergraduate and Master's level. Experience of teaching English in an
international perspective is also of merit, as is previous experience of
