Description:

Carleton University's School of Linguistics and Language Studies

the teaching and learning of second/additional languages.

Desired additional qualifications are the TESL Ontario TESL Trainer

dissemination of scholarship through publication. Applicants must
also have a demonstrated record of excellence in teaching.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach to a culturally

provide graduate supervision at the MA and PhD levels, to develop a
program of research leading to significant peer-reviewed publications,
and to contribute effectively to academic life in the School of
Linguistics and Language Studies.

The School's programs in Applied Linguistics and Discourse Studies
are housed in a large unit representing a rich diversity of perspectives
on language, with courses in these areas as well as in Linguistics,
American Sign Language, Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), German, Italian,
Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and less commonly taught
languages such as Anishinaabemowin, Inuktitut, Ki-Swahili and
Turkish, as well as Communication Courses for Disciplines and
Professions and courses in English as a Second Language for
international students, immigrants and refugees. Detailed information
on the School can be found at http://www.carleton.ca/slals/.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply, but in accordance
with Canadian immigration requirements, applications from Canadians
and permanent residents will be given priority. Carleton University is
an excellent employer, and is strongly committed to fostering diversity
within its community as a source of excellence, cultural enrichment
and social strength. We welcome those who would contribute to the
further diversification of our faculty and its 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, Ottawa International Airport, and Gatineau Park --
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 include a covering letter 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 School Director at the contact info listed below.
