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 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 at the University of Victoria invites
applications for a tenure-stream Assistant Professor position in syntax,
effective 1 July 2007.  By the time of appointment applicants are expected
to have a PhD in Linguistics with a specialization in syntax, preferably
with a focus on a language of East Asia, as well as an excellent record of
scholarly achievement and a commitment to excellence in undergraduate and
graduate teaching. 

The responsibilities of this position include MA and PhD student
supervision and the teaching of syntax in our undergraduate and graduate
programs. As our department values both depth and breadth of scholarly
expertise, additional specializations are welcome: semantics,
psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, computational linguistics, or other.
To support diversity in our academic programs, we would encourage the
person we hire to develop a course on the structure of their research
language.  We seek an individual with the ability to contribute strongly to
the research profile of the Department and its administrative functions.
Collaborative, interdisciplinary research, teaching, and program
development are also encouraged. 

Applicants should send, in hard copy, a letter of application, curriculum
vitae, 1-3 publication samples, copies of teaching evaluations, and the
names and e-mail addresses of three referees to:

The University of Victoria is one of Canada's most vigorous comprehensive

Department of Pacific and Asian Studies, the Faculty of Education, and in
the Division of Continuing Studies, the English Language Centre and

applications from women, persons with disabilities, visible minorities,
Aboriginal Peoples, people of all sexual orientations and genders, and
others who may contribute to the further diversification of the University.
