The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, 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 at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Tenure Track Position in Language Documentation
The University of Texas at Arlington
The Department of Linguistics and TESOL at The University of Texas at
Arlington invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of
Assistant Professor in Language Documentation, to begin in fall 2011.
Candidates must hold an earned doctorate in linguistics, with evidence of
success and continued promise in publishing. Potential hires with a
successful track record in external grants are of particular interest. ABD
candidates will be considered. The ideal candidate is engaged in ongoing
community-driven fieldwork with a non-Indo-European language. In addition,
the ideal candidate will also have a specialization in one of the core
theoretical areas of our department: syntax, semantics, pragmatics or
phonology. Applicants should consider how their training and theoretical
approaches are consistent with existing faculty in their core area, since
they will share responsibility for grad courses and dissertation direction
in the department.
We are a growing department, with new hires, two new research labs, and a
new B.A. in linguistics. We offer a PhD in linguistics and MA degrees in
both linguistics and TESOL. The University of Texas at Arlington is
aggressively pursuing Tier One status, seeking to increase doctoral
production, undergraduate graduation and retention rates, and extramural
funding. The University is highly diverse in its student demographics, and
is a doctoral-granting, research-intensive public institution of over
30,000 students in the dynamic Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, which has a
wide variety of cultural, recreational, and entertainment offerings.
Applications from members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged.
A letter of application for the position in Language Documentation
describing teaching and research interests including a description of
fieldwork experience and training, a current curriculum vitae, two writing
samples, and three current letters of reference from those most familiar
with the applicant's work, including at least one member of the
candidates's dissertation committee, should be sent by U.S. mail to the
Electronic applications - in PDF format only - may be submitted (with
'Attn: Language Documentation Search Committee' in the subject header) to
the email address below.
For more information about the department, visit the department URL above.
Consideration of applications will begin on December 1, 2010, and will
continue until the position is filled. Preliminary interviews are planned
for the 2011 LSA Annual Meeting. This is a security sensitive position, and
a criminal background check will be conducted on finalists. The University
of Texas at Arlington does not discriminate on the basis of race, color,
national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, veteran status or sexual
orientation in employment or in the provision of services. Effective August
1, 2011, the use of tobacco products (including cigarettes, cigars, pipes,
smokeless tobacco and other tobacco products) by students, faculty, staff,
and visitors are prohibited on all UT Arlington properties.
