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.

full-time basis. The Leverhulme eligibility criteria are that applicants
must normally be under 35, not hold or have held a permanent academic
position in a UK university or comparable institution, and have an awarded
doctorate or equivalent research experience. (Applications from those aged
35 and over will be considered if they began their academic studies at a
later age than is usual or if they have had a career change or break.)

The award requires matched funding from the institution and there is
provision for personal research expenses of up to £6k per year, if
requested at the time of application. The Jill Hart Leverhulme Early Career
Fellow will be appointed in the first three points of University Grade 7,
salary range currently £28,839 - £30,594, depending on experience.

For full details of the Leverhulme scheme please see:


For information about applying from outside the University of Oxford:

The Faculties of Oriental Studies and of Linguistics, Philology and

the University of Oxford supports elementary language teaching and
learning, and philological teaching and study, of Vedic Sanskrit and of the
languages belonging to the Iranian branch of Indo-European at their
earliest attested stages. Also the study of the early linguistic history
and prehistory of the Indo-Iranian language family.

Expressions of interest must be received by noon on Friday 11 December 2009
and should include:
1. a maximum two-page CV with education, publications, thesis title and

4. an indication of what additional research expenses may be claimed;
5. two letters of reference;
6. a note of who your mentor would be, having obtained his/her agreement in
principle to act in this role, if the application is successful.

Interviews will not be held. A nominee will be selected by the Management

of Oriental Studies and of Lingustics, Philology and Phonetics, and all who
have expressed interest will be advised soon after the closing date.
