Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.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.

University or Organization: Norwegian School of Economics & Business Administration
Department: Dept of Professional & Intercultural Communication
Job Location: Bergen, Norway
Web Address: http://www.nhh.no/
Job Rank: PhD Research Scholar

Specialty Areas: Terminology and Language Resources


The Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration (NHH) invites
applications for a position as research scholar (PhD) in terminology and
language resources at the Department of Professional and Intercultural

The 3-year position involves participation in the EU project CLARA - Common
Language Resources and their Applications, which is a Marie Curie Initial
Training Network receiving funding from the European Commission's 7th
Framework Programme (cf. http://clara.uib.no/;

The specific position involves participation in the CLARA subproject
Harmonisation of Terminological Resources, which is a cooperation between
NHH, TILDE (LV), the University of Bergen (NO), and Unifob Aksis (NO),
offering secondment at TEMIS (DE). The overall aim of the subproject is to
develop language-independent methods and tools for constructing and
consolidating multilingual termbases and ontologies, for corpus-based term
extraction and for ontology-based domain recognition of text, as well as to
investigate the degree of compatibility of different termbases.

The CLARA network offers an intensive research exchange programme between
16 participating institutions. While staying with the host institution for
most of the time, the programme allows for a shorter stay at a second
academic or industrial partner institution (secondment). As part of the PhD
level activities, the successful candidate will be expected to partake
actively in training activities organised by CLARA. This includes summer
schools, seminars and courses organised locally and at other network

Applicants should hold a strong university degree (Masters/diploma or
equivalent) which would entitle them to embark on a PhD project in a
relevant discipline, and should be in the first four years of their
research careers. Students who are completing their master's degree during
the current semester, with the intention of starting the doctoral position
in the spring semester 2010, are also invited to apply. The qualifying
education must be completed before enrolment in the PhD programme.

As the project is funded by an EU mobility scheme, there are also certain
mobility requirements. Most importantly, the candidate must not be a
national of Norway, the country of the host institution. Applicants must
not have resided or performed their main activity in the host country more
than 12 months in the 3 year period immediately prior to the start date.
(For a full list of mobility criteria, see

Women are particularly encouraged to apply.

Applicants need to have a good working knowledge of English, as all CLARA
training events will be in English. In addition, as the project is intended
to involve work on various multilingual language resources including
in-house terminology resources, good knowledge of a Scandinavian language
is a major advantage.

For further information about the available position and project, see the
full announcement at

Enquiries regarding admission requirements, application procedures etc. may
be directed to the PhD admission office at NHH, phdnhh.no. See also the
department's web page, http://www.nhh.no/Default.aspx?ID=104.

Application Deadline: 15-Nov-2009
