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.

Job summary:
The position involves teaching at the undergraduate level (5 hours per
week), including courses in both a BA and a Masters Programme. The main
areas of instruction are the sociolinguistics of minority languages in the
Near East, language contact, and typology. However, besides these core
areas, the successful candidate will have considerable freedom to focus on
his/her own special areas of interest and contribute towards developing the
teaching profile of the department. Besides teaching, the candidate will be
expected to fulfill administrative duties and contribute to establishing
the web-based resources at the department. The candidate will be encouraged
to complete a Habilitation (second thesis, generally required for a
professorship in Germany) over the time span of the appointment. The
position will commence on October 1, or as soon as possible thereafter.

- PhD in general linguistics in hand at the time of appointment.
- Demonstrated expertise in a language of the Near and Middle East,
preferably Arabic or other Semitic language.
- Research experience in at least one of the following fields: empirical
sociolinguistics, bilingualism and minority languages, documentation of
endangered languages, language typology
- Commitment to excellence in teaching, preferably experience in courses
relevant to the position.
- Clear evidence of potential for research and publishing in English at
international level.
- Knowledge of German would be a distinct advantage, but is not essential
as the language of teaching is English.
