Editor for this issue: Amy Renaud <renaudlinguistlist.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.

The Department of Linguistics in the Faculty of Arts at the University of
Alberta invites applications for a tenure-track position in Phonetics at
the Assistant Professor level. Expertise and/or interest in one or more of
the following areas will be advantageous: automatic speech recognition,
psycholinguistics, clinical linguistics, language acquisition, indigenous
language documentation. Qualified candidates should hold a PhD and
demonstrate outstanding potential for a research career. Responsibilities
will include teaching in both our undergraduate and graduate linguistics
programs and maintaining an active research program.

The Department of Linguistics has a strong commitment to empirical and
experimental approaches to linguistic research. Eleven full-time,
continuing faculty members are currently pursuing research projects in
experimental phonetics, phonology, morphosyntax and semantics of Amerindian
languages, bilingual language acquisition and language impairment,
sociolinguistics, cognitive linguistics, corpus linguistics, and
morphological processing in the mental lexicon. More information about the
Department can be found at www.uofaweb.ualberta.ca/linguistics/.

Established in 1908 as a board-governed, public institution, the University
of Alberta has earned the reputation of being one of the best universities
in Canada based on our strengths in teaching, research, and services. The
University of Alberta serves over 36,000 students in more than 200
undergraduate programs 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). The University's main campus is located in
Edmonton, the vibrant, cosmopolitan capital of the province of Alberta. The
Edmonton metropolitan area is the sixth largest in the country with a
population of approximately one million (www.edmonton.ca). Edmonton is
located only a few hours drive from Banff and Jasper National Parks, which
offer skiing in winter and excellent hiking and sightseeing in summer.

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience. Applicants
should send curriculum vitae, a letter describing their areas of research
interest, samples of publications, and, if available, a teaching dossier
and evaluations of teaching performance to:
