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.

Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Applied Linguistics
Department of English, Wheaton College, Norton, MA
Duration: 2 years
Teaching Load: 3 courses per year
Salary: $50,000 + benefits + research stipend.

Wheaton College, a highly selective liberal arts college in Norton,
Massachusetts, invites applications for a two-year Andrew W. Mellon Post-
Doctoral Fellowship in Applied Linguistics, to begin Fall, 2012. We seek a
colleague with a PhD in Linguistics or a related field who is interested in
joining the English department of a small liberal arts college and who can
enrich our curriculum with contemporary perspectives and new research.
Over the two-year appointment the Mellon Fellow will teach two sections of
first-year writing and four linguistics courses (3 courses per year). One
course, which will be taught both years, will be on Global Englishes. The
others may be on Structure and Grammar of English, the History of the
English Language, or other topics in applied linguistics that will help our
students develop as scholars, writers and teachers of writing. The design of
individual courses is left to the Fellow, although the department mentor can
assist with course development. Fellows are expected to participate in the
life of the department and are encouraged both to make connections
across the curriculum and to participate in trans-disciplinary research that
links English, Mathematics, Computer Science, Psychology, Anthropology
and Modern Languages.

Fellows are allocated salaries of $50,000 with full benefits and additional
research funds as well as inter- and intra-departmental mentoring.
Applications are due by March 15, 2012; early applications are
encouraged. We anticipate that interviews will be conducted via Skype.
Candidates must apply on line at the application URL below.

Wheaton College seeks educational excellence through diversity and
strongly encourages applications from women and men of minority groups.
Inquiries may be sent to Professor Lisa Lebduska, Director of College
Writing, at the email address below.
