LINGUIST List 20.405

Jobs: Semantics: Post Doc, University of Oxford

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.

Postdoctoral fellowship in Semantics
Grade 7, £28,839 - £35,469 per annum

A fixed-term research and teaching appointment in Semantics is available
from 1 October 2009 for two years. Candidates with a background in either
philosophy or linguistics will be considered, though a strength in
semantics is required.

This initiative is designed to provide an intensive and supported career
development opportunity for an outstanding academic at an early stage of
his or her career, and to promote equality of opportunity by helping to
create a more diverse pool of potential candidates for future academic
posts at Oxford or elsewhere. Applications for this post are especially
welcome from women and ethnic minorities, who are under-represented among
the University's academic staff (section 38 of the Sex Discrimination Act
1975 and section 48 of the Race Relations Act 1976 apply).

This Fellowship is offered jointly by the Faculty of Philosophy and the
Faculty of Linguistics, Philology, and Phonetics. The successful candidate
must have obtained his or her doctorate by 1 October 2009, and should not
normally have completed it earlier than 1 October 2005. He or she will
have a proven track record of research in the area of Semantics, and will
demonstrate potential for producing outstanding research in this area
within the period of the Fellowship.

Postdoctoral Fellows are offered the opportunity to develop their expertise
in both research and teaching. They will also have an academic mentor as
well as a personalised career and professional development package,
including the opportunity to undertake the University's Postgraduate
Diploma in Learning and Teaching.

Further particulars, including details of how to apply, can be obtained
from the Faculty websites (http://www.philosophy.ox.ac.uk and
