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.

The Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at Harvard

culture, linguistics and gender, language politics, linguistics and
poetics, or folklore and mythology.

The teaching load is four courses per year.  The appointed candidate
will be responsible for teaching courses for undergraduate and
graduate students concerned with the structure and history of Russian
and comparative Slavic linguistics. Precise teaching responsibilities
will be tailored to the specialties of the person hired, but they will
include tutorial work as well as a range of courses, from freshman
seminars to broadly oriented courses for undergraduate and graduate
students, and specific topics courses and seminars for graduate

Ph.D. (or foreign equivalent) is expected by the time of appointment
and native or near-native Russian and English are required.
Applicants are requested to send a letter detailing research and
teaching interests, a curriculum vitae, and one short writing sample
