Jobs in French, 2008-2009

There are still edits on the wiki page. Which site is the most reliable?

'The French language position at Kent State University-Stark Campus is still viable. It belongs on this list after Johns Hopkins University's announcement, but I do not know how to enter it there.

Should this be in alphabetical order? -- knock yourself out! I did! -- I completely alphabetized the list a couple weeks ago, but someone undid it :( -- seriously?? will someone put them in the order in which they are nationally ranked?

Scroll to the bottom for format guidelines & useful information.

How to use this wiki [Partial edit]

 * Editing is easy! If you know of information that should be added or changed, click the "Edit page" button and add it. The formatting conventions are pretty easy to understand.
 * For second-hand and uncertain information, the result of last year's discussion seems to be that you should add the information, but identify it as such. Check last year's wiki for examples.
 * Do keep in mind that edits and discussion page posts will be tied to your IP address. If you're concerned about identifying yourself, post from home or a public terminal. On the other hand, it's not like the whole world doesn't already know you're o

n the market.

 * The discussion page is pretty unsatisfactory. Other disciplines have different discussion forums (see, for example, Link Classics). If someone has a better solution than the discussion page here, please make a suggestion.
