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 and TESOL at The University of Texas at
invites applications for a one semester, non-tenure track position as a
Visiting Assistant Professor in TESOL, for the Spring 2009, starting
January 12, 2009.
Candidates will have a doctorate or be ABD in Applied Linguistics or a
closely related field by the time of the appointment. We have a specific
need for the candidate to teach two courses (Pedagogical Grammar of
English, Second Language Acquisition) and to condict the TESOL practicum.
Although these courses are cross-listed undergraduate/graduate, the main
audience will consist of graduate students working towards the M.A. in
TESOL. Candidates are encouraged to provide supporting documentation for
their teaching experience in these courses and graduate student teaching.
Please note that this job is separate from the tenure-track position that
we are advertising in the same area, which has a start date of Fall 2009.
Candidates may apply to both positions (with separate cover letters and
supporting materials as requested for the two different positions), but
should be advised that the positions are not linked.
The Department has a thriving Ph.D. program, strong M.A. programs in
linguistics and in TESOL, and a Graduate Certificate in TESOL. Our graduate
student organization hosts an annual student conference. The Department is
also in the process of building its undergraduate offerings, which
currently includes a linguistics minor. The Department also includes the
English Language Institute, which offers intensive English instruction at
various levels. Successful candidates must demonstrate the ability to teach
undergraduate and graduate courses, particularly in areas of TESOL and
second language pedagogy. Applications from members of underrepresented
groups are especially encouraged.
The University of Texas at Arlington is a doctoral, research-intensive
public institution of over 25,000 students located in the heart of the
Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, a region with excellent cultural, recreational
and entertainment facilities.
A letter of application describing teaching and research interests, current
vitae, one writing samples, evidence of teaching excellence, and three
letters of reference from those most familiar with the applicant's research
and teaching should be sent to the address provided below.
For more information about the department, visit our website, or contact by
Review of the applicants will begin Dec. 1, 2008 but will continue until
successful candidates are identified.
This is a security sensitive position, and a criminal background check will
be conducted on finalists.
UT Arlington is an Equal Opportunity & Affirmative Action Employer.
