Subject: Jobs: Language Variation and Change: Asst Prof, Memorial University of Newfoundland, NL, Canada



University or Organization: Memorial University of Newfoundland
Department: Linguistics
Rank of Job: Assistant Professor
Specialty Areas: Language Variation and Change


Description:
 
Tenure-Track Appointments: The position listed below will normally
commence July 1, 2005, subject to budgetary approval; note that in
some departments, more than one position is available. A completed
earned doctorate is required for the appointee to receive the rank of
Assistant Professor and to be in a tenure-track position. (If a
successful candidate has not completed an earned doctorate, he/she
shall be appointed to a regular term, non-renewable three-year
appointment at the rank of Assistant professor. If the candidate
completes all the requirements for the doctorate during the first 24
months of the term appointment, he/she shall begin a tenure-track
appointment following completion of the requirements of the
degree). Letters of application should be sent to the Head of the
appropriate department, accompanied by a current curriculum vit´┐Ż, a
teaching dossier, the names and addresses of three persons who can
supply a letter of reference, and such additional materials as may be
specified below.

Consideration of applications will begin October 18, 2004, and all
applications should reach the Head no later than November 19, 2004.

The successful applicant will be expected to teach at both
undergraduate and graduate levels in sociolinguistics and language
variation and should demonstrate an ability to teach at the advanced
undergraduate level in one or more of the areas of
historical/sociohistorical linguistics, language and gender, language
contact, language and history and linguistic typology. Expertise in
quantificational methodology is highly desirable, as is a willingness
to engage intellectually with linguists in other sub-fields of
linguistics, both informally and in collaborative research. Applicants
must demonstrate a record of teaching excellence, as well as a strong
research and publication record. The successful candidate will be
expected to maintain an active research program in language variation
and change, and supervise graduate students in this area; an interest
in pursuing research on the dialects and languages of the region
(English, French, local aboriginal languages, for which substantial
archives and new laboratory facilities exist), would also be an asset.

Memorial University is committed to employment equity and encourages
applications from qualified women and men, visible minorities,
aboriginal people and persons with disabilities. All qualified
candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent
residents will be given priority.
