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 at http://linguistlist.org/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 British Columbia invites
applications for a Teaching Postdoctoral Fellowship in theoretical
linguistics. Successful candidates will teach, conduct research in their
field of expertise, and participate actively in the intellectual life of
the department. As well as its strengths in phonetics, phonology,
morphology, semantics, syntax, first language acquisition and field
linguistics, the UBC Department of Linguistics has a commitment to the
theoretically informed study and documentation of First Nations Languages.
In addition to their primary research area, it would be an advantage for
candidates to have a secondary specialization in one or more of the
following areas: field linguistics, languages of the Americas, West African
languages, language acquisition, laboratory phonology, and speech science.
Postdoctoral Teaching Fellows teach up to 4 three-credit courses during the
academic year (September to April inclusive). The appointments run for 12
months starting at a date to be negotiated between 1 July and 1 September
2005; the salary range is $35,000 to $40,000 (Canadian). Applicants should
have a PhD in linguistics.
Send hard copy of the following materials to the address below: (i)
application letter; (ii) curriculum vitae; (iii) teaching evaluations (if
available); (iv) a sample of published or unpublished work. Also arrange
for three letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address, and
send electronic versions of the application letter and curriculum vitae to
stemberginterchange.ubc.ca or by fax to (604) 822-9687.
Any applicant whose materials are received by February 15, 2005 is
guaranteed consideration. Both appointments are subject to final budgetary
approval. UBC hires on the basis of merit and is committed to employment
equity; we encourage all qualified persons to apply. Since these are
postdoctoral awards, the positions are open equally to citizens of any country.
