Editor for this issue: Bethany Townsend <bethanylinguistlist.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.

Established in the 1960s, the School has a long tradition of producing

The post-holder will provide teaching in Sociolinguistics and Variation in
English at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as input into
other modules. The ability to offer teaching in Semantics and/or
Pragmatics could be an advantage.

The School also provides a context for high level international research
and it is expected that applicants will contribute to this research profile.

The successful candidate will be expected to commence 1st September, 2008,
or as soon as possible thereafter, and the post is available for a period
of 12 months with the possibility of a further 12 months extension subject
to funding. Experience of professional practice is essential.
