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.

The University of Bern offers an

Assistant Professorship in English Historical Linguistics

additional years upon positive evaluation).

Applicants should have a strong research and publication profile in the
study of language change in English, and be able to teach courses
addressing a range of different time periods, including Old/Middle English.
Candidates should have research expertise that permits exchange with other
disciplines in the humanities and cultural studies, as well as participate
in interdisciplinary co-operations (e.g. with the University's Centre for
the Study of Language in Society). Previous experience in negotiating
external funding would be an asset. Academic requirements for this position
are a completed PhD plus a 'Habilitation' or equivalent qualification (e.g.
a second book-length publication, a cluster of international journal
articles or a significant funded research project).

The University of Bern is committed to equal opportunities in employment,
in particular to increasing the number of women in senior academic
positions. Women are therefore encouraged to apply.

such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match

costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company 
operates such a program.
