>with expertise in one or more of the following areas: Composition,
>Discourse Analysis, Document Design, Graphic Communication, Professional
>Writing, the history and theory of Rhetoric, Web Design and related areas
>of online technology. Applications are especially encouraged from
>candidates with secondary strengths in Literature. A Ph.D. and
>demonstrated strength in teaching and research are required. Corporate or

>Literature, Language, Rhetoric, and Professional Writing. Salary
>negotiable. Appointment effective 1 July 1999. Send resumes, transcripts,
>writing samples, and letters of reference no later than 1 January 1999 to
>Dr. Murray McArthur, Chair, Department of English, University of Waterloo,
>Waterloo, Ontario, N2L 3G1. In accordance with Canadian immigration
>requirements, priority will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent
>residents of Canada. The University of Waterloo encourages applications
>from all qualified individuals, including women, members of visible
>minorities, native persons, and persons with disabilities.
>The official wording is important, because this is a re-advertisement of a
>job competition we had last year, but could not fill. Under our
>immigration policies we could not consider foreign applications in the
>original competition. This year, however, because we could not fill the
>position from that pool, we can review foreign applications (and hire
>foreign nationals). As the ad states, we are obliged to give priority to
>Canadian applicants, all things being equal, but the best applicant will
>get the job, regardless of citizenship.
>Please *DO NOT RESPOND TO THE LIST*. I am not currently subscribed.
>Please *DO NOT APPLY TO ME*. Apply to the address in the body of the ad.
>I will be happy to field queries about the position (as will our chair, at
>the address in the body of the ad).
