Jobs: Phonetics or Semantics: Instructor, Carleton University

Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.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.

Linguistics and Discourse Studies, Arabic, American Sign Language, Chinese

scholarship, including but not limited to women, visible minorities,
Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, and persons of any sexual
orientation or gender identity.

Carleton University is located on a beautiful campus in the central portion
of Ottawa, bounded by the Rideau River on one side, and the Rideau Canal on
the other. Its prime location - minutes from downtown, an international
airport, and the Gatineau Hills - enhances quality of life, and allows for
recreational opportunities for individuals and families. With a population
of almost one million, the city of Ottawa is Canada's capital and reflects
the country's bilingual and multicultural character. Applications should be
submitted to Professor Randall Gess via post or email, addresses below.
Letters of application should be accompanied by a curriculum vitae as well
as a concise dossier that includes written evidence of teaching
effectiveness. Three letters of reference should be sent directly to the
