The Department of Linguistics at the University of Alberta has an

be appointed under a Sessional Lecturer Contract at the University of

candidate would be welcome to participate in departmental research,
although it is not a requirement of the position.

Applications will be accepted until June 21, 2002. Salaries at the
University of Alberta are currently under negotiation but the starting
salary will be at least $44,000 (Canadian) per annum. Merit
