Jobs: Applied Linguistics: Asst Prof, Brock University
Editor for this issue: Bethany Townsend
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/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been
set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Candidates must hold by the time of their appointment a PhD in
Speech-Language Pathology, Psycholinguistics/Neurolinguistics, Applied

there may also be future opportunities for teaching at the graduate level.
The appointment will be made at the rank of Assistant Professor,
conditional on qualifications and experience.
Review of applications will commence on October 12, 2007, and will continue
until the position is filled. All qualified candidates are encouraged to
apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
