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.

Michigan State University seeks to fill two tenure-track positions at the
rank of assistant professor (Ph.D. in hand by August 16, 2007) in second
language learning and teaching, especially to support its new Second
Language Studies Ph.D. program (http://www.msu.edu/user/sls/) in the
College of Arts & Letters beginning August 16, 2007.  Each candidate,
depending on the background and research specialties, will be housed in one
of three departments:* 1) French, Classics, and Italian, 2) Linguistics and
Germanic, Slavic, Asian and African Languages (home of the MA TESOL
program), or 3) Spanish and Portuguese.  We seek candidates with primary
interests in linguistic and/or psycholinguistic orientations to second
language acquisition.
It is anticipated that the successful candidates will become part of a
growing research community in second language studies and will take
advantage of research opportunities through the Cognitive Science program
(http://www.cogsci.msu.edu/), the Center for Language Education and
Research (CLEAR, http://clear.msu.edu) and related Centers and initiatives. 

Of particular interest are those candidates with experience or interest in
working with heritage language learners and those whose major language
interest area reflects the language areas of the participating departments.
 We welcome applicants whose research would especially benefit from
collaborative opportunities in an interdisciplinary work environment.   
Applicants for all positions should submit: 
* 	updated CV, 
*	statement of interest with specific mention of which of these research
areas is appropriate for the applicant's own background and future direction,  
* 	statement of research interests,

* 	three letters of reference.

 Review of applications will begin on October 30, 2006 and will continue
until both positions are filled.

Studies Program, A-711 Wells Hall, Michigan State University, E. Lansing,
