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.

primarily involves courses in Turkic languages and literatures with special
emphasis on Turkish. Teaching also includes responsibility for courses and
course administration as well as supervision of undergraduates and doctoral

Assessment criteria: In the ranking of eligible applicants equal
consideration will be given to academic competence and teaching skills.
Academic competence in synchronic, diachronic, and comparative Turkic
linguistics with the main emphasis on Turkish, including Ottoman Turkish,
and a non-Oghuz Turkic language is necessary for the position. Attention
will also be paid to experience in teaching Turkic literatures as well as
social and historical backgrounds.

Equal care will be taken in scrutinizing teaching skills and academic
competence. Assessment of teaching ability will consider planning,
production of own teaching materials, execution, and evaluation of teaching
as well as thesis direction and examination. For more information, see
