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.

University or Organization: University of Amsterdam

Job Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands

Job Rank: Lecturer/PhD candidate

Specialty Areas: General Linguistics

Required Language(s): Swedish (swe)


The Faculty of Humanities of the University of Amsterdam invites
applications for the position of
Lecturer/PhD candidate in Scandinavian linguistics (especially Swedish), 1.0
FTE (38 hrs) for a period of five years.
vacancy number W11-174

The position of lecturer/PhD candidate is a temporary job that is composed of
40 per cent teaching duties and 60 per cent research duties, including the
preparation and writing of a PhD thesis that must be completed within five
years. The duties of the lecturer/PhD candidate consist of teaching,
conducting PhD research, writing a PhD thesis and obtaining a doctorate. The
lecturer job description details the teaching duties, while the PhD candidate
job description details the PhD research duties. Since different salary scales
and different job performance standards apply, there shall be two separate
appointments for reasons of legal status.

Together with the other new lecturers you will participate in a comprehensive
introductory programme. You will be supervised closely during the first year
of your appointment. Additional didactical training is also part of the
appointment. Based on the candidate's educational portfolio, previously
acquired competences will be taken into consideration. The Faculty of
Humanities offers you the opportunity to collaborate with leading researchers
at research institutes that - partly as a result of their multidisciplinary
approach - are world-renowned. Moreover, you will be teaching in a dynamic
context in which new educational methods are being developed.

We are looking for a candidate with a clear aptitude for the domain of
Swedish linguistics, especially syntax. The candidate must have a (near-)
native command of the Swedish language, and a clear interest in language
acquisition because a substantial part of the teaching load will be within that
field. Furthermore, the candidate should have demonstrable teaching and
research skills.

Candidates must submit a detailed PhD proposal according to the guidelines
that can be found on the ACLC website (see below) on a relevant subject in
the field of Scandinavian linguistics. They may contact the ACLC director,
Prof dr P.C. Hengeveld (p.c.hengevelduva.nl) to find a potential supervisor
that may assist them in the elaboration of this proposal. The proposal will be
evaluated with respect to viability, general scholarly interest, relevance for
the current ACLC and Departmental research target areas, e.g.: The
Language Blueprint and Learnability. Information about the research targets of
the ACLC and about the research groups working under the auspices of the
ACLC can be obtained from the ACLC website, under Research.

It is of the utmost importance that you check the ACLC website
(http://www.hum.uva.nl/aclc/ under Vacancies) for further information.
