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.

The Department of Linguistics at Memorial University of Newfoundland
invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor
level in language variation and change.
The successful applicant will be expected to teach at both undergraduate
and graduate levels in sociolinguistics and language variation, and should
demonstrate an ability to teach at the advanced undergraduate level in one
or more of the following areas:
language and gender, language contact, linguistic anthropology, and
language policy and planning.
In addition, a demonstrated research interest in theoretical interface
areas, including socio-phonetics, socio-syntax or historical
sociolinguistics is preferred. Applicants must demonstrate a record of
teaching excellence, as well as a strong research and publication record.
The successful candidate will be expected to maintain an active research
program in language variation and change, and supervise graduate students
in this area; an interest in pursuing research on the dialects and
languages of the region (English, French, local aboriginal languages, for
which substantial archives and new laboratory facilities exist) would also
be an asset.
The position listed will normally commence July 1, 2008, subject to
budgetary approval, and will be made at the rank of Assistant Professor.
All positions normally require a completed doctoral degree in the
appropriate discipline. A completed earned doctorate is required for the
appointee to receive the rank of Assistant Professor and to be in a
tenure-track position. (If a successful candidate has not completed an
earned doctorate, he/she shall be appointed to a regular term,
non-renewable three-year appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor. If
the candidate completes all the requirements for the doctorate during the
first 24 months of the term appointment, he/she shall begin a tenure-track
appointment following completion of the requirements of the degree).
Letters of application should be sent to the appropriate individual as
noted below, accompanied by a current curriculum vitae, a teaching dossier,
the names and addresses of three persons who can supply a letter of reference.
