Open Rank Position in Linguistics 
Rice University
The Department of Linguistics, Rice University, is seeking to fill a
tenured or tenure-track position in linguistics at the level of
assistant, associate or full professor beginning fall, 2001. The Ph.D.
is required. 
The Department of Linguistics at Rice has a strongly functionalist,
usage- based orientation. The Department adopts an integrative approach
that is sensitive to language and its many contexts: discourse, social,
cognitive, historical, etc. We emphasize language description and
typology, generalizing from personal fieldwork experience. Fieldwork on
a non-Indo-European language and an interest in language description and
its implications are essential. 
Rice University is a private, selective institution with undergraduate
and graduate strengths in science, engineering, the social sciences and
the humanities. Rice places strong emphasis on research and excellence
in classroom teaching. 
We expect the successful candidate to share the orientation of the
Department and to have an outstanding record in those areas. In
addition, the candidate should have demonstrated excellence in teaching
undergraduate and graduate courses. The normal course load is six hours
per semester. 
Interviews will be held in January, 2001 at the LSA meeting in
Washington, D.C. For full consideration, applications including cover
letter, CV, three names of references, and one representative article
must be received by November 15, 2000. Reply to: Faculty Search,
