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.

Canada Research Chair in Cognitive Science

The Cognitive Science Program (Cog Sci) at Simon Fraser University (SFU)
invites applications for a tenured (full professor) Tier 1 Canada Research
Chair (CRC) in Cognitive Science. SFU is located in the metropolitan
Vancouver area and is consistently ranked as one of the top universities in
Canada. The CRC Program (http://www.chairs.gc.ca) is supported by the
Government of Canada and was established to enable Canadian universities to
achieve the highest levels of research excellence. Tier 1 CRC Chairs are
for researchers who are 'recognized as leaders in their fields' and are
expected to attract excellent students and researchers as part of an
'innovative research program of the highest quality'. The seven year term
of the CRC is renewable.

It is anticipated that the successful candidate would take up the position
early in 2010. A Ph.D. in Cognitive Science, or Computing Science,
Linguistics, Philosophy, Psychology or related area is required, with a
strong commitment to excellence in research and teaching. Area of
specialization must be such that Linguistics, Philosophy or Psychology fit
as the home department. Preference will be given to candidates in
interdisciplinary areas. However, the overall innovation and promise of the
candidate's work will be considered as important as any specific area.
Through research and teaching, the successful applicant will have the
opportunity of inspiring and mentoring culturally diverse undergraduates
and graduates. The Chairholder will help to develop our educational
programming and establish strong research programs that will contribute to
the success of the CogSci and its reputation for innovation and excellence.

CogSci seeks a scholar with outstanding research programs consistent with
the strategic research plan of SFU (www.sfu.ca/vpresearch/SRP.html), which
includes areas such as human development, collaboration and visualization,
who can collaborate with the current interdisciplinary group of CogSci
researchers conducting work in classification, human language processing,
learning and reasoning. While applications from researchers in all areas of
cognitive science are encouraged, we seek an individual with strong
connections either to linguistics, philosophy or psychology. The
Chairholder will provide leadership within CogSci in conjunction with
research conducted in the affiliated units. The primary criterion for
selection will be the excellence of the candidates.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however Canadians and
permanent residents will be given priority. SFU is committed to employment
equity and encourages applications from all qualified women and men,
including visible minorities, aboriginal people and persons with
disabilities. Applications will be accepted until January 30,2009. The
position is subject to budgetary approval.

Under the authority of the University Act personal information that is
required by the University for academic appointment competitions will be
collected. For further details see the collection notice

To apply, send a curriculum vitae and evidence of research productivity,and
arrange for 6 letters of reference to be sent to the address provided below.

We thank all applicants in advance for their interest, but only those
short-listed will be contacted.
