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:

Applications are invited for a tenure-stream position at the rank of
Assistant Professor in Language and Culture in the Department of
Humanities, University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC), to begin July 1, 2009.

This is a tenure-stream position in Intersections, Exchanges, Encounters
(IEE), a program in the humanities that supports the emerging fields and
methodologies which are situated between established disciplines. The
successful candidate's primary research and teaching interests will revolve
around the conceptualization of language as a vehicle for understanding
cultural intersections, encounters, and exchanges. We are particularly
interested in approaches that focus on ethnicity, media, visual languages,
sexuality, or the environment. This is an open-discipline position in the
humanities.

The successful candidate will teach undergraduate and graduate courses and
will supervise M.A. and Ph.D. graduate students in his/her area of
expertise. She/he will teach in a new selective (honours) program as well
as in an established Humanities discipline. She/he will be expected to play
a key role in promoting and developing this new program. PhD and clear
evidence of excellence in teaching and research are required. Salary will
be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

UTSC is a research-intensive division in the University of Toronto. It has
an interdisciplinary commitment and a multicultural student body speaking a
wide range of languages. The University of Toronto offers the opportunity
to teach, conduct research and live in one of the most diverse cities in
the world. Additional information on the Department can be found on our
website, and for IEE at http://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/~humdiv/IEE/index.htm.

Applicants should apply online at the URL provided below (Internet Explorer
and PC required; Job Number 801083). Please ensure to include a letter of
application, a current curriculum vitae, a writing sample no more than 20
pages, and a one-page discussion of how research and teaching is part of an
emerging field of study situated between disciplines, and therefore fits
within the mandate of IEE. Three letters of reference should be sent
directly to Professor William R. Bowen at the address provided below.

Reference letters and large documents may also be submitted electronically
to the application email below.

The University of Toronto is strongly committed to diversity within its
community and especially welcomes applications from visible minority group
members, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, members of
sexual minority groups, and others who may contribute to the further
diversification of ideas. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply;
however, Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.

Application Deadline: 14-Nov-2008
