Description:

The Department of Linguistics at Memorial University, in partnership with the Labrador Institute, seeks to recruit and nominate an accomplished scholar for a Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Change, Adaptation, and Revitalization of Aboriginal Languages.

The successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. in Linguistics and have an excellent publication record. The Canada Research Chairs program stands at the centre of a national strategy to make Canada one of the world’s top countries in research and development. The Tier 2 Chairship is for 5 years, renewable once for a further 5 years. The appointment will be at the level of Assistant Professor or Associate Professor.
