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 http://linguistlist.org/jobnet.html.

This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment
standards of various countries.

Chemnitz University of Technology

In connection with the advancement of research within the framework of
junior research groups offered by the BMBF, a post is available
forthwith in the Faculty of Humanities for

Outstanding Junior Academics (Junior Professorship)

in the field of

"Intercultural Training (with Special Focus on Exchange Programmes and
International Relations)"

The successful candidate will be expected to conduct teaching and
research primarily in the subject components Understanding Foreign
Cultures and Behaviour in the field of Intercultural Communication. In
particular, candidates should have a proven record in empirical
research in international exchanges and/or the effects of sojourns
abroad, plus specialist publications.  Furthermore, an
interdisciplinary approach, experience of foreign countries and
above-average foreign language skills are required.  A willingness and
an ability to hold classes in English are prerequisites.

All other tasks are set out in paragraph 38 of the Saxon university
law (Sächsisches Hochschulgesetz). The post is being offered in
anticipation of the proposed adoption of the law governing
universities (HRG) by Saxon state law. Employment will be in
accordance with the current Saxon university law pertaining to the
appointment of professors, subject to the conditions of appointment
set out in paragraph 47 of the HRG. Apart from pedagogical aptitude, a
further requirement of this position is an outstanding PhD
qualification - going back no more than five years - that evinces
specific qualification in the field of the appointment.  Until the
employment law reform is adopted by state law, the appointment will,
initially, be as an assistant lecturer or academic staff member based
on an unofficial pay scale. Further, the position will be limited to
three years, but with the possibility of an extension. Salary will be
in line with the current provisions regarding such a post (IIa or Ib
BAT-O).  Should legal, budgetary and personal prerequisites allow, the
appointment is contingent upon its promised transition into a junior
professorship. In this case, the position will be adjusted to the
regulations in force at that time (salary according to W1, observing
the social security regulations). The period of employment already
served will be taken into account.

Chemnitz University of Technology is committed to promoting women and
would urge qualified women to apply. In cases of equal suitability,
preference will be given to disabled candidates. The original
advertisement in German, available at
http://www.tu-chemnitz.de/juniorprofessuren, provides more details on
the conditions of employment.  Please send applications and the
customary documentation (CV/academic background, record of academic
publications, list of classes taught, copies of degree certificates)
by 10 May 2002 to the Dean of the Faculty of Humanities.

Linguists or Intercultural Trainers with linguistic competences are
encouraged to apply.
