Editor for this issue: Bethany Townsend
The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use
non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge
that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity,
nationality, 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 Konstanz is one of nine top-level universities identified
by the Excellence Initiative in Germany. The Zukunftskolleg is a central
scientific institution of the University of Konstanz for the promotion of
young scientists in the natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences.
The Zukunftskolleg forms a platform for interdisciplinary discourse between
excellent researchers in Germany and abroad and provides young scientists
with resources for obtaining third party funding. It offers 5 research
positions for the development and implementation of individual research
projects/research groups. Each position can, in principle, be divided into
two half-time positions. The initial appointments will commence on October
1, 2008 and end on March 31, 2010. An extension for an additional 3.5 years
is foreseen, provided that external third party funding has been granted.
The Zukunftskolleg provides a professional infrastructure and an
appropriate workplace for conducting research. A pool for funding
cooperative projects, research assistants, research trips and the
acquisition of equipment is available. Additionally, fellows may nominate
recognized experts in their field of research as senior fellows, who will
be invited to Konstanz for a period of 3-12 months and who, in addition to
their research work and involvement in cooperative projects, will advise
young scientists belonging to the Zukunftskolleg.
The prerequisites for acceptance are a doctoral degree and outstanding
scientific qualification as documented by research activities and
publications. International experience in teaching or research and a strong
interest in interdisciplinary topics are desirable. Each fellow is a member
of both a department of the university and the Zukunftskolleg. Involvement
in teaching is possible. The foreseen topical connection of the project to
the research profile of the University of Konstanz should be demonstrated
in the project outline. Active participation in the regular weekly meetings
of the Zukunftskolleg as well as residence in Konstanz is expected.
The selection of the fellows will be made on the basis of the project
outlines and a two-day workshop to be held on September 1 - 2, 2008 at the
University of Konstanz.
Information about the fellowships and additional opportunities for
participation in the Zukunftskolleg can be found on our website:
The University of Konstanz is an equal opportunity employer and tries to
