Jobs: Sociolinguistics: Asst Prof, U of Michigan
Editor for this issue: Vanessa Manion
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/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

The Department of Linguistics at the University of Michigan invites applications
for a tenure-track assistant professor in sociolinguistics to begin September
2006. Under exceptional circumstances more senior candidates may be considered.
In keeping with the department's interdisciplinary perspective, we especially
encourage applications from candidates who are committed to conducting
innovative research that connects sociolinguistics to theories of human
cognition and/or computational models of language. The ideal candidate will
complement and build on existing strengths within the department, and will be
eager to interact with students and faculty from the broader linguistic
community at the University of Michigan. A Ph.D. by the beginning of the
appointment is required.
Applications should be sent to the address below. Please include a letter of
application, curriculum vitae, research statement, one or more representative
publications, and evidence of teaching excellence. Please also arrange for
three letters of recommendation to be sent to the address above. (Senior
candidates should instead provide names of references.) Review of applications
will begin November 18, 2005, and will continue until an appointment is made.
Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. The University of Michigan is
supportive of the needs of dual career couples and is an equal
opportunity/affirmative action employer.
