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:

Concordia University's Department of Education and the Centre for the Study
of Learning and Performance (CSLP) -- a multi-disciplinary research centre
of excellence -- seek an exceptional, emerging researcher for a Tier II
Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Applied Linguistics. The CRC program, which
is designed to ensure that Canadian universities achieve the highest levels
of research excellence, invites applicants who can demonstrate the promise
of an outstanding research profile and the potential to become leaders in
their field. The successful candidate will develop avenues of research that
build on existing strengths within the Applied Linguistics unit and the
CSLP (applied research in the development of second language (L2)
phonology, morpho-syntax, lexis, first and second language literacies,
social and psycholinguistic aspects of L2 learning) and forge
department-wide links with researchers in educational technology, early
childhood development, and adult learning.

The CRC position offers an attractive salary, an annual research stipend, a
reduced teaching load, and the opportunity to apply for start-up
infrastructure funding through the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI)
Leaders Opportunity Fund (LOF). The successful candidate will also have the
opportunity to make use of Concordia's SAGE lab, a state of the art
language learning research lab and other CSLP research facilities. He/she
will be offered an unconditional tenure-track appointment at the rank of
Assistant or Associate Professor, as appropriate. Tier II CRCs are awarded
for five years and are renewable once. Applicants must demonstrate a strong
command of English; a functional knowledge of French is an asset, although
this is not a requirement for the position. International applications are
welcomed.

Please send your application to Dr Richard Schmid at the address below.
Applications must consist of a cover letter, a current curriculum vitae,
copies of recent publications, a statement of teaching
philosophy/interests, a statement of research achievements, and evidence of
teaching effectiveness. Candidates must also arrange to have three letters
of reference sent directly to the departmental contact.

This tenure-track position, linked to the CRC appointment, will begin 1
July 2010. The University will nominate the successful candidates to the
CRC Secretariat at the earliest opportunity according to the guidelines of
the CRC program. Candidates for all positions must have a completed PhD.
Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the
positions are filled. All applications should reach the departments no
later than November 1, 2009. For additional information, please visit our
website at http://artsandscience1.concordia.ca/ or contact Richard Schmid
at the email address below.
