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 Center for Advanced Study in Theoretical Linguistics (CASTL) is a
Norwegian Center of Excellence funded by The Research Council of
Norway and the University of Tromsø. The academic group at the center
currently consists of 6 senior researchers, 8 researchers/post-doctoral
research fellows and 14 PhD students. Several other researchers and PhD
students with other sources of funding are connected to CASTL as affiliates
or guest researchers, so that the CASTL community today consists of
about 50 researchers and PhD students.

CASTL's primary research activity is within generative grammar with a
focus on syntax, phonology, and language acquisition. CASTL also runs a
Graduate School. The candidates hired in the advertised research
fellowships are expected to follow the program of the Graduate School and
to complete a doctoral dissertation within the four years. A more detailed
plan for coursework, research, and teaching will be developed by the
employee together with the Graduate School Coordinator shortly after
appointment. More information about our research and the Graduate
School may be found here:

Linguistics at the Faculty of Humanities, Social Sciences and Education.
The normal period of appointment is four years. The PhD study is
standardized to three years. The fourth year consists of teaching or other
duties for the university, organized according to a distribution formula of 25
% per year. The university may fund a shorter period of appointment if the
research fellow has already completed parts of his/her research education,
or when previous appointments to educational positions (research fellow,
research assistant or the equivalent) may be considered as part of the
education. The combined research education must add up to three years in
