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 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.
