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.

The Department of English Language and Literature at the National
University of Singapore (NUS) invites applications for the post of
Assistant Professor (tenure track), and of Visiting Fellow (non-tenurable).
Target areas include (i) Sociolinguistics and/or (ii) Linguistic Theory
with specialization in Syntax and Semantics.
Applicants should have a PhD in Linguistics, a sound record of
international publications in their field(s), and a commitment to teaching
at the undergraduate and graduate levels. As the posts are in the
Department of English Language, they will be expected to teach foundational
modules in sociolinguistics and linguistic theory drawing on data primarily
from English. The ideal candidate in the area of sociolinguistics should be
able to teach language policy, socio-cultural approaches to language, as
well the more traditional 'variationist' paradigm at the undergraduate
level. The ideal candidate in the area of linguistic theory should be able
to teach not only syntax and semantics but also phonology and morphology at
the undergraduate level. All candidates should have the potential to
develop an international standing in their chosen fields.
NUS expects the highest standards of teaching and scholarship from its
faculty. In return, it offers excellent terms and conditions. There is
considerable support for research, including grants for research projects,
conference money and a very well funded library. Salary will be
commensurate with experience and level of appointment.
