Message 2: Socioling: Visiting scholar at University of Bonn, Germany

Date: Wed, 02 Feb 2000 14:15:12 +0100
From: Prof. Dr. K. P. Schneider <k.schneideruni-bonn.de>
Subject: Socioling: Visiting scholar at University of Bonn, Germany

We have an opening for the 2000-01 academic year for a visiting scholar in
the interdisciplinary North America Program at the University of Bonn,
Germany. The minimum requirement is an MA, although we strongly prefer a
person with a recent PhD in linguistics. The candidate should have a
specialization in sociolinguistics and a strong background in (recent)
changes and variation in Canadian English (regional, ethnic and social
dialects, including genderlects and politically correct language).
The position entails holding two courses with a Canadian focus per
semester. Other responsibilities include reviewing material that requires a
native speaker of English and some administrative work. The candidate will
also be expected to function as liaison between the North America Program
and the Chair of Applied English Linguistics.
Only applications from Canada can be considered. If you are interested, you
should mail me immediately.
