The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, 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.

A one-year research and teaching appointment in Sociolinguistics from a
date to be arranged between January 2011 and October 2011 for an
outstanding academic at an early stage of his or her career.

This fellowship is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation as part of a
wider Oxford University initiative which is designed to provide an
intensive and supported career development opportunity for outstanding
academics at an early stage of their career; and to promote equality of
opportunity by helping to create a more diverse pool of potential

Applicants must have obtained his or her doctorate by the date of taking up
the post, and should not normally have completed it earlier than 1 October
2007. The post is open to applicants working in any area of
sociolinguistics, but we would particularly welcome applications from those
with interests in language contact, creole linguistics or the varieties of
English used in postcolonial settings.

This post is a joint appointment between the Faculty of English and the
Faculty of Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics. A college association will
be arranged for this post, and it is envisaged that the postholder will be
based in the college, but will undertake teaching for both Faculties and
for the College.
