General linguistics Postdoctoral teaching fellowship at Washington University

Washington University in St. Louis invites applications for a
postdoctoral teaching fellowship in linguistics and language to begin
on July 1, 1999. The appointment is initially for one year with a
possible extension for an additional year. Linguistics courses at
Washington University contribute to the Language, Cognition, and
Culture track of the undergraduate major in
Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology; they also serve undergraduate and
masters' degree students in English education and TESOL. Hence, broad
interests and ability to relate to a variety of students are

We are seeking a doctoral-level linguist (ABD considered) 
who has additional background and interests that will
contribute to the new and rapidly-growing second major in
Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology. Secondary interests might
be centered in language acquisition, second language acquisition, 
cognitive science, cognitive neuroscience, or sociocultural 
approaches to language and cognition; excellence in teaching 
and research are more important than the specific primary or 
secondary areas. Demonstration of successful teaching 
experience is required.

The successful candidate will teach two lower-division courses,
Language in Culture and Society and Introduction to Linguistics, and
two upper division/MA courses. Of these, Contemporary Linguistics (an
introduction emphasizing language structure) is scheduled for Fall
1999, and the Spring 2000 course may be one of the following: Language
Acquisition, Second Language Acquisition, Historical and Comparative
Linguistics, Principles of Linguistics (an introduction emphasizing
linguistic theory), or another course depending on needs of the
program and the candidate's areas of interest and expertise. If the
position is renewed, any changes in course offerings would be limited
to the upper division.

For more information on the graduate and undergraduate programs in
PNP, see our website at

Please send curriculum vitae, one or two published or unpublished
papers, a statement of teaching experience and credentials, teaching
evaluations, and have three letters of recommendation forwarded to:
