1) Corpus linguistics, syntax
2) didactics (ESL) and/or language acquisition
The candidate must hold a PhD, or be sure to have a PhD in hand by
December 1, 2010 at the latest, in the field of English Linguistics (or
comparable, with good command of English) and have demonstrated
expertise in this domain, through quality publication and solid teaching
experience. The ideal candidate will engage in the further expansion of
the corpus linguistics group (position 1) or the ESL teaching and
research group (position 2) with the STL research center at the
Université Lille 3 (http://stl.recherche.univ-lille3.fr/).
Normal teaching load is about 7 hours per week (2 terms of 13 weeks) and
concerns English linguistics classes, or possibly also English for
non-specialists (ESP) (mostly undergraduate level).
Hiring will be done at the level of "Maître de Conférences" (MCF) with a
monthly salary scale ranging from 2,058 to 3,722 (before taxes and
withholdings), depending on the number of years of experience at MCF
level (i.e. most positions for which a PhD is required).
Initially, there is no requirement that candidates speak French
fluently, but it is preferred that they at least have a sufficient
working knowledge to understand the procedures. The successful candidate
must be authorized to work legally in France by Sept. 1, 2011, the start
date of the position.
Candidates who are interested in this position should contact Maarten
Lemmens (maarten.lemmens at univ-lille3.fr) AS SOON AS POSSIBLE; please
send along your CV too, so that he can check whether all's ok. (No need
to send a full application to him, just the CV.)

usual official procedure, which is open to all nationalities anyway.
Do not hesitate to contact Maarten Lemmens
(maarten.lemmens at univ-lille3.fr) should you have any questions on this
position or on the official procedure.
