Grant MacEwan University, Edmonton. (Full-time continuing position)

  • Wording in AAA ad unclear as to whether review begins Jan 1 or position begins Jan 1.
    • The ad says they invite "applicants for a full-time continuing position in Anthropology, commencing January 1, 2012." Later it says "Consideration of applications will commence October 7, 2011 and will continue until the position is filled." So I think it's safe to conclude that the job starts January 1, 2012.
