    Vacant

    Can one refer to a position (i.e., job) that hasn't been filled as being vacant? For example:

    "I'd like to know if the position advertised in The Times is still vacant."

    Thanks.

    Yes, your sentence is absolutely correct, although you may wish to specify which position, in case the company had more than one advertisement.

    That's not an actual sentence or a sentence that I plan to use; it's just an example.

    Thanks for replying.
