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

intercultural communication and the use of new technologies and digital
media for teaching and learning foreign languages. The successful

on-going research activities in the various research centres of the

of the curriculum of the new Centre for Competence Development (CCD). The

harbour the career service and coordinate the alumni management of the
University of Giessen. As the successful candidate will also be appointed

teaching coordination and management is highly desirable. As a Professor of
