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.

Description:

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.
