Job Opportunities in Children's Studies - Pass it on!!!!

Via the Childhood Studies mailing list, as posted by Peter Cumming, an announcement and call for applications for TWO(!) tenure-stream faculty positions at York University's Children's Studies Program. Very exciting news for those of you currently or soon-to-be on the academic job market. I'm so glad to see this program expanding, and am really looking forward to seeing who they get!!!! 

Here's the info, as posted by Cumming earlier today:

It is my pleasure to draw your attention to two new postings for Full-Time Tenure-Stream - Assistant Professor positions at York University in Toronto, Canada, in the Children's Studies Program in the Department of Humanities in the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies.  One position is in Children's Studies (Contemporary Children's Culture) and the other is in Children's Studies (Children's Literature).  Both are for a start date of July 1, 2011, with an application deadline of October 30, 2010. 

Here are links to the two complete postings: 

Children's Studies (Contemporary Children's Culture): http://webapps.yorku.ca/academichiringviewer/viewposition.jsp?positionnumber=1161 

Children's Studies (Children's Literature): http://webapps.yorku.ca/academichiringviewer/viewposition.jsp?positionnumber=1162 

The posting also notes that they are conducting a broad search for both positions, and welcome applications from scholars from a range of specializations and backgrounds. Also, while all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply, priority will be given to Canadian citizens/permanent residents.
