Jobs: Quantitative Linguistics: Full Prof, University of Alberta

Editor for this issue: Svetlana Aksenova <svetlanalinguistlist.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 tenured position in Quantitative Linguistics at the full Professor level. The
successful candidate will be exceptionally well qualified with an outstanding research record in
the application of quantitative, statistically based techniques to the study of language,
particularly in the areas of morphology, language processing, and corpus linguistics. Qualified
candidates must hold a PhD. Responsibilities will include maintaining an active research
program, teaching in both our undergraduate and graduate linguistics programs, and
administrative service.

The Department of Linguistics has a strong commitment to empirical and experimental
approaches to linguistic research. The Department consists of eleven full-time, continuing
faculty members 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 http://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 35,500 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.uofaweb.ualberta.ca/arts/index.cfm). 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. 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. Applicants must also
arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to the Chair. The effective date of employment
will be July 1, 2007.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents
will be given priority. If suitable Canadian citizens or permanent residents cannot be found, other
individuals will be considered.

The University of Alberta hires on the basis of merit. We are committed to the principle of equity
in employment. We welcome diversity and encourage applications from all qualified women and
men, including persons with disabilities, members of visible minorities, and Aboriginal persons.
