Subject: Semantics: Tenure-track Position at Northwestern Univ, Illinois USA


The Department of Linguistics at Northwestern University anticipates
(pending final approval) a full-time tenure-track position in
SEMANTICS with a start date of September 1, 2001. Although we expect
to hire at the rank of assistant professor, more senior candidates
will also be considered. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in linguistics
or a related field by that date. We seek candidates with a primary
specialization in semantics whose work addresses connections between
semantics and other areas of linguistics (e.g., phonology, syntax,
discourse/information structure, psycholinguistics, computational
linguistics). Preference will be given to candidates with language
breadth and/or expertise in computational, experimental, or
quantitative/corpus-based methodologies.

To receive full consideration, applications should arrive by December 1, 2000.
Please send a CV (indicating an e-mail address), statements of
research and teaching interests, reprints or other written work,
teaching evaluations (if available), and the names of three references.
Candidates should arrange to have the letters of reference sent directly
to the search committee. Send materials to:
