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.

Web Address: http://artsandscience1.concordia.ca/cmll/
Job Rank: Assistant Professor
Specialty Areas: General Linguistics
Required Language(s): Indo-European
Concordia University's Department of Classics, Modern Languages, and
Linguistics (CMLL) invites applications for one tenure-track position in
Linguistic Theory and Historical Linguistics. Applicants should have a PhD
in Linguistics with broad teaching and research expertise. A strength of
our program is its full integration of theoretical and historical
linguistics, and we expect the successful candidate to make contributions
in both domains. Teaching and research experience in several of the
following subjects is required: Introduction to Generative Linguistics,
Introduction to Historical Linguistics, Language and Mind, phonology,
syntax, acquisition, older Indo-European Languages, and Field Methods /
Structure of Non-Indo-European languages.
An active research profile, including international conference
presentations and journal publications is required, as is demonstrated
ability to work as part of a research team. The successful candidate will
be expected to serve not only our dynamic undergraduate program, but also
our imminent graduate program in Theoretical and Historical Linguistics.
Department and University level administrative experience are also an
asset, as is competence in French, the official language of Quebec.
Applications may be submitted electronically and must consist of a cover
letter, a current curriculum vitae, samples of recent publications, samples
of teaching material (syllabi, handouts, etc), and a letter that includes a
statement of teaching philosophy and a statement of research achievements
and goals. Candidates must also provide the names of three referees from
whom letters may be solicited directly to Dr. Brad Nelson at the
application address listed below.
Subject to budgetary approval, we anticipate filling this position,
normally at the rank of Assistant Professor, for July 1, 2008.
Appointments at a more senior level may also be considered. Review of
applications will begin immediately and will continue until the positions
are filled. All applications should reach departments no later than
November 1, 2007.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian
citizens and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.
Concordia University is committed to employment equity.
