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.

Postdoctoral Teaching Fellows have the opportunity to interact with faculty
on teaching and research, as well as be part of a cohort of early-career
scholars sharing methods and exchanging ideas for excellent teaching.
The Department of English is seeking candidates with a specialty in English
Language Studies, especially those whose areas of interests include the
application of linguistics to literary or textual study. The UBC Department
of English has active undergraduate and graduate programs in English
Language and a strong complement of faculty with expertise in this field
Under the supervision of an experienced professor, the successful candidate
will teach three semester courses each year of the fellowship; these will
include two large courses at the first-year level and one smaller course at
the second-year level or above.
Applicants should submit a letter of application, a statement of teaching
philosophy, evidence of teaching potential, a sample of written work, and a
CV. All material should be sent to the address given below.
Applicants must also arrange for three academics to mail confidential
