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 British Columbia invites

Successful candidates will teach, conduct research, and participate
actively in the intellectual life of the department. In addition to its
strengths in semantics, syntax, morphology, phonology, phonetics & speech
science, psycholinguistics, first language acquisition and field
linguistics, the UBC Department of Linguistics has a commitment to the
theoretically informed study and documentation of First Nations Languages. 

Applicants should have a primary specialization in formal semantics. In
addition, expertise in field linguistics and/or another subdiscipline of
linguistics would be desirable, especially in morphology, phonetics, and/or
in one or more languages of North America. Applicants should be prepared to
teach at both the undergraduate and graduate level, including an advanced
graduate course in their area of research.

The Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow will teach 3 three-credit courses during
the academic year (September to April inclusive) and have some involvement
with the supervision of graduate students. The appointment runs for 12
months, starting at a date to be negotiated between July 1 and September 1,
2007. Applicants should have a PhD in linguistics by the start date of the
appointment, and must have completed the Ph.D. within the 3 years before
the start of the appointment. The salary is $40,000 (Canadian), plus
benefits.  The position is subject to final budgetary approval.

Send a hard copy of the following materials to the address below: (i)
application letter, including a statement outlining courses the applicant
is prepared to teach; (ii) curriculum vitae; (iii) teaching evaluations (if
available); (iv) a sample of published or unpublished work. Also arrange
for three letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address.

Any applicant whose materials are received by February 28, 2007 is
guaranteed consideration. The appointment is subject to final budgetary
approval. UBC hires on the basis of merit and is committed to employment
equity; we encourage all qualified persons to apply. Since these are
postdoctoral awards, the positions are open equally to citizens of any country.
