Editor for this issue: Luiza Newlin Lukowicz <luizalinguistlist.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.

We are seeking a lecturer in Japanese for a half- to full-time post. The
post is temporary, from 1 January 2009 to 30 June 2009, with the
possibility of extension beyond that date. The post is based in Falun,
Sweden. Demand for the subject has increased markedly in recent years and
it is likely that if the post is extended it will be full-time.

done via
distance-learning technology. Other responsibilities include participation
in the development and administration of the subject area as a whole.

relevant to the duties described for the post. In addition, the applicant's
skills at developing and leading cooperation with fellow staff members and
the local community, as well as keeping informed about research and
development in the subject area will be taken into account.

Teaching skills are of greater importance than scientific expertise for
this post.

National goals regarding the job market, equality, and society will also be
taken into consideration (HF 4 kap 15 §).

Additional Qualifications:
Applicants will preferably be native speakers of or have native-level
competence in Japanese, as well as a university degree in the language.
Since the staff of the university's language department work closely
together, a cooperative attitude is necessary for the position. Experience

internet-based learning is also of merit.
