Description:

The Department of Modern Languages & Cultural Studies at the University of
Alberta invites applications for a position in Applied Linguistics at the
Assistant Professor or Associate Professor rank, with a specialty in Second
Language Acquisition and pedagogy. The successful candidate will coordinate
and administer an undergraduate language program (French or Spanish);
supervise and mentor graduate teaching assistants and sessional instructors;
teach graduate seminars within the department’s Applied Linguistics program;
and engage in research in second language acquisition and pedagogy. A PhD in
Applied Linguistics, French Applied Linguistics or Spanish Applied Linguistics
is required. Native or near-native proficiency in French or Spanish is
required, along with demonstrated competence and experience in the
administration of undergraduate language programs.

Applicants should have a strong cultural orientation to their professional
activities and be open to collaboration with other disciplines. MLCS has
applied linguists in French, German, Spanish, Russian and Ukrainian who work
in their respective language areas and in the cross-linguistic graduate
program in Applied Linguistics (see http://www.arts.ualberta.ca/~applling/).
Applied Linguistics in MLCS encompasses not only second language acquisition
and pedagogy but also sociolinguistics and discourse analysis.

The University of Alberta, one of Canada’s largest and most accomplished
research universities, is situated in Edmonton, a metropolitan area of over

living. Established in 1908 as a board-governed public institution, the
University of Alberta has earned the reputation of being one of the top five

200 undergraduate and 170 graduate programs (www.ualberta.ca). The Faculty of
Arts is the oldest and most diverse faculty on campus, and one of the largest
research and teaching centres in western Canada (www.arts.ualberta.ca).

On-line applications including cv, letters of reference, a teaching portfolio,
