Editor for this issue: Luiza Newlin Lukowicz <luizalinguistlist.org>

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.

Job Rank: Advanced Assistant to Full Professor

Specialty Areas: General Linguistics; Sikh and Punjabi Studies


The Humanities Division of the University of California, Santa Cruz,
invites applications for the newly created Sarbjit Singh Aurora Endowed
Chair in Sikh and Punjabi Studies. The Endowed Chair, established in memory
of the donor's son, will be held by a distinguished member of the
humanities faculty and will support research and teaching about the Sikh
community from a multicultural and global perspective, including, but not
limited to foci on gender, diaspora, and literary, historical, and cultural
studies. Candidates may work in any field in the humanities and will be
appointed in the department or departments that best match their research
and teaching expertise. We will consider applicants at any rank from
advanced assistant to full professor (although the finalist must first
receive tenure in order to be actually named as Chair holder). This
position carries a five-course equivalency workload, which normally means
teaching four courses over three quarters and carrying out other academic
and service responsibilities. The holder of the Sarbjit Singh Aurora
Endowed Chair also will work with the relevant department and the
Humanities Division to administer the endowment funds. These funds will be
available to support graduate students, the Chair holder's research, and
other intellectual and curricular initiatives that specifically further
Sikh and Punjabi studies.

The Division of Humanities includes the Departments of American Studies,
Feminist Studies, History, History of Consciousness, Linguistics,
Literature, Philosophy, and the Programs in Languages and Writing. The
Division has a strong tradition of collaborative and interdisciplinary
work, and we especially encourage applications from strongly qualified
candidates eager to extend their teaching and research activities across
departmental and disciplinary boundaries. The campus is especially
interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence
of the academic community through their research, teaching, and service.
