The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, 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.

earned doctorate in Linguistics and show a strong record of sustained
research and departmental citizenship.
While the area of primary focus is open, the successful applicant must have
a theoretical perspective on data drawn from an empirical domain including
the languages of the peoples indigenous to the Americas, have interests
that mesh well with those of the present faculty of the department,
college, and university, and contribute actively to the success of the
department's research, teaching, service, and outreach missions. Duties of
faculty members include sustaining a high-quality research program,
mentoring graduate and undergraduate student-scholars, teaching courses
which are part of the departmental curriculum, and providing departmental
and/or university service.
In addition to the departmental role, the successful applicant will also be
appointed as Director of the Center for American Indian Languages (CAIL).
One of the primary duties of the appointee is to bring a vision for CAIL's
future that builds on, enhances, and augments its current strengths and
ongoing successes, and which integrates the activities of CAIL into the
larger university community, while continuing and expanding its role in the
community. Experience in administration, collaborative outreach, and
fund-raising, as well as ability to support and facilitate varying research
perspectives, will be considered.
Salary is competitive, and commensurate with abilities and experience. The
University of Utah offers a generous benefits package and research support.
Review of applicants will begin on November 15, 2010 and continue until the
position is filled. A letter of application, a CV, and the names of three
references should be sent to the address below. Out of courtesy to
applicants and referees, reference letters will be required only at a later
stage of the process.
