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 School of Languages, Linguistics and Cultures contains one of the
UK's largest concentrations of high-quality research and teaching in
languages and linguistics. Within it, the department of Linguistics and
English Language is seeking to fill three permanent Lectureships
(=Assistant Professorships) in English Linguistics. The lectureships are
open-ended positions, subject to the satisfactory completion of a
probationary period. Candidates with a research specialism in any area of
English Linguistics are encouraged to apply. A specialism in historical
linguistics, child language acquisition, psycholinguistics, or corpus-based
and quantitative methods of data analysis may be an advantage.

The successful candidates will have a doctorate, completed or near to
completion, in the area of English Language/Linguistics or Linguistics,
together with a developing record of high-quality publications and a proven
ability to contribute to a scholarly environment of international research
excellence. The post-holders will be expected to contribute to research
activities within their area of expertise, generate scholarly publications,
submit research grant applications and participate in research supervision
at PGT and PGR level.

The appointed candidates will have a strong commitment to high-quality,
research-led teaching and will have some experience of teaching. The
post-holders will be expected to contribute to teaching at both
undergraduate and postgraduate level, and an ability to teach course units
in areas of Linguistics beyond their research specialisms is desirable. The
successful candidates must be able to collaborate closely with colleagues
in the delivery of teaching and learning, be willing to take a share of
responsibilities for student progress and academic management, and be
eager to make a full commitment to our ideals of collegiality and academic
integrity at all levels of activity.
