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.

Professor position, beginning August 2010. Applicants must have a Ph.D.
degree in hand or expected by August 2010 in Arabic, French, linguistics or
equivalent (ABD may be considered for appointment at the instructor rank).

program and contribute to a thriving French program. The candidate is
expected to supervise the Arabic program, teach undergraduate courses in
Arabic language and culture, and French linguistics. Ability to teach
Arabic and/or Francophone culture courses in English preferred. Native or

research expectation for the Teaching professor track.

curriculum vita, evidence of teaching performance, and three letters of
