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:

Faculty Appointments in Linguistics - All Fields (at Assistant Professor /
Associate Professor Level)

The Division of Linguistics and Multilingual Studies (LMS) in the School of
Humanities and Social Sciences at Nanyang Technological University,
Singapore, invites qualified academics to apply for a number of
tenure-track faculty positions at either Assistant or Associate Professor
level.

The new Division of LMS was established in 2008 to oversee the teaching of
a new BA (Honours) programme in Linguistics and Multilingual Studies, which
admits some 60 majors every year. In line with NTU's mission to become a
world-class research-led university, the new division places strong
emphasis on cutting-edge research and international publications. With
multilingualism as a central theme, research in the division is geared
towards a deepening of our understanding of multilingualism through
empirical studies of topics such as language description and documentation,
language contact, loanword phonology, machine translation, language
maintenance and shift, and multilingual language processing and
acquisition. Potential applicants can view more details about the
division's teaching and research on its website:
http://www.ntu.edu.sg/HSS/Linguistics/Pages/default.aspx

Successful applicants can look forward to a research-stimulating
environment. Interdisciplinary research is strongly encouraged and
supported in the School and teaching duties are commensurate with top
research universities in the world. New faculty members will be entitled to
apply for a Start Up Grant of up to SGD 100,000. The School also makes
generous annual provision for conference travel and research grants.

Suitable applicants should have PhDs in Linguistics or related fields and
be able to contribute to the running of the Linguistics programme by
teaching core courses. The appointees will also be expected to offer
electives in one or more areas of specialisation. At the current stage of
the programme, the Division seeks applicants interested in multilingualism
from all fields, including but not limited to topics such as bilingual
cognition, language contact, corpus linguistics, typology of Asian
languages and historical linguistics. A research background in languages
spoken in the region is highly desirable.

In addition to teaching at the undergraduate level, successful applicants
will be expected to contribute to postgraduate-level teaching and
supervision, and be active in research and publication. Appointees should
complement existing strengths in the Division and also add to those
strengths in new and substantive ways. For appointments at the Associate
Professorship level, applicants should possess very high standing in their
fields of specialisation, as well as extensive experience in
administration, teaching and research.

To apply, please refer to the Guidelines for Submitting an Application for
Faculty Appointment
(http://www.ntu.edu.sg/ohr/Career/SubmitApplications/Pages/Faculty.aspx),
and send your application the address below.

Please arrange for three references to be independently emailed to the
Chair of the Selection Committee, Professor K.K. Luke at H-LMSntu.edu.sg.
For further inquiries, please contact Professor Luke.

Review of applications will begin on 1st November 2009 and the closing date
for the applications will be 30th November 2009.
