Jobs: Danish/English & Lang & Communication: PhD Scholarship, U Aarhus

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.

PhD scholarships
Scholarship no.: 544-0115

The Department of Language and Business Communication at the Aarhus School
of Business, University of Aarhus, invites applications for 1-3 PhD
scholarships. The successful candidates will be expected to take up
appointment by 1 August 2008 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The Department of Language and Business Communication is a large department
which is primarily engaged in business-oriented humanities education and
research. We invite applications for projects on language and/or
communication in business contexts.

The projects must focus on either:
1. The use of English, German, Spanish or French in technical, legal,
economic or other business contexts, possibly as contrasted with Danish, or
2. Corporate communication, preferably as used in one of the geographical
areas in which one of the languages mentioned is spoken and possibly as
contrasted with Danish.

We are particularly interested in projects within the area of English
language and communication for business or other specialised purposes. An
area of special interest to the department is technical English. Therefore
projects to be based on English-language data will be given priority.

As regards projects to be based on German-language data, we are interested
in proposals within corporate communication; and as regards projects
envisaging the use of French data, we are especially interested in
proposals on the use of French in technical or economic contexts.

In any case, the proposed projects must be compatible with the research
profile of one of the following research groups/centres at the department:

- Knowledge Communication
- Translation & Interpreting
- Corporate Communication

Applicants must have a Master's degree in English, German, Spanish or
French, depending on the language involved in the proposed project. In line
with the priority we give to projects based on English-language data, we
will give priority to candidates with a Master's degree in English,
preferably in English for special purposes.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such 
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) 
Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any
