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.

Research Fellow in French Applied Linguistics

The University of Southampton is seeking a postdoctoral Research Fellow
with a background in second language acquisition, to join a research team
studying the language learning of British students of French and Spanish
during residence abroad.

This research project is funded by the UK Economic and Social Research
Council, and our aims are a) to document the linguistic development of
participating students before, during and after residence abroad, and b) to
relate linguistic development to students' language use patterns and
developing social networks while abroad. The postholder will take a lead
role in all aspects of data collection, data analysis, reporting and
dissemination of results, for the learners of French, and will be expected
at certain times to undertake extensive fieldwork in France.

Candidates should hold a PhD in a relevant area of French linguistics/
applied linguistics/ sociolinguistics, and should possess native/
near-native competence in French and English. The project will be
collecting both quantitative and qualitative data, and will be creating and
analysing a new learner corpus using the CHILDES software suite. Knowledge
of both quantitative and qualitative research techniques is highly
desirable, as are strong IT skills.

This is a fixed term full time post lasting 24 months, with a start date of
1 August 2011. Starting salary is £27428 per annum. Informal enquiries
