Jobs: English & Dialectology: Researcher, British Library

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.

This is a unique opportunity for a suitably qualified researcher in English
dialectology/sociolinguistics to work with an important national collection
at the British Library.

Helping to develop an original template for presenting raw data on regional
speech in the UK, you'll build on our hugely impressive portfolio of
resources and services. Enabling us to carry out a sociolinguistic analysis
of 312 BBC Voices Recordings, you'll also improve accessibility of this
internationally renowned collection to a worldwide audience.

With an understanding of English accents and dialects, you'll be aware of
the significance of BBC Voices Recordings and have experience of analysing
and transcribing speech phonetically. Possessing keen attention to detail,
you'll work well independently and collaboratively with colleagues in the
'Voices of the UK' research team and take ownership of the research strand
of this project. You'll also engage with researchers and stakeholders to
deliver a unique resource that will provide a model for current and future
British Library provision in this area.
