             Subject: Canada Research Chair in Language and Culture

    Canada Research Chair (Tier 1) - The Faculty of Arts at the University of
    Waterloo invites applications for a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in
    Language and Culture to begin as soon as July 1, 2003. The purpose of this
    chair is to design and develop pioneering research in technologically
    mediated linguistic and cultural studies.

    Based in UW's Canadian Centre for Cultural Innovation, the chair holder
    will work with colleagues in Anthropology, Classical Studies, Drama and
    Speech Communication, English Language and Literature, French Studies,
    Germanic and Slavic Studies and Spanish and Latin American Studies to
    develop new methods for understanding language learning and teaching, to
    explore new design techniques for multimedia projects, and to create new
    analytic/theoretical bases for evaluating the impact of technology on the
    development and understanding of culture.

    In keeping with the University of Waterloo's Strategic Research Plan, this
    position will be of interest to a senior expert in the interaction of
    technology and culture with experience in multimedia for humanities
    computing, hypertext, text analysis and computational linguistics and the
    interaction of technology and culture. The successful candidate will have
    not only an outstanding research record in the theory of language, rhetoric
    and discourse as applied to and through technology but also significant
    applied experience in cultural activities such as film, video, museum
    exhibits, etc. She/he will be expected to create a dynamic research program
    designed to attract a significant number of graduate students and
    postdoctoral fellows to the research laboratory. The lab will provide
    facilities to create, produce, and edit digital texts, music, art and
    cultural products such as exhibits.

    Nominations and applications including a curriculum vitae, a five-year
    research plan and three (3) confidential letters of reference sent under
    separate cover should be forwarded by March 31, 2003 to Dr. Robert R.
    Kerton, Dean of Arts, University of Waterloo, 200 University Avenue West,
    Waterloo, Ontario, Canada N2L 3G1. Please note that all CRC appointments
    are subject to final review by the CRC Secretariat. The University of
    Waterloo encourages applications from all qualified individuals, including
    women, members of visible minorities, native peoples, and persons with
    disabilities. This appointment is subject to the availability of funds.
