 Position Announcement -- Assistant Professor (tenure-track)

The Division of English as an International Language (DEIL) at
the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) invites
applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor (nine-month /
full time appointment) with specialization in Second Language
Acquisition (SLA). 

The successful candidate will demonstrate both a well-defined research
agenda and a commitment to excellence in teaching. Any area of
specialization in SLA studies will be considered. However, preference
will be given to candidates who can complement the Division's existing
strengths in sociolinguistic approaches to SLA with more
psycholinguistically-oriented approaches to SLA. Classroom ESL/EFL 
teaching experience is required. Native or near-native fluency in
English is also required. Knowledge of computer applications to
teaching and research is desirable. Fluency in a language other
than English is also desirable. 

Responsibilities include teaching and advising in the Division's
graduate M.A. TESL program and undergraduate departmental programs,
and in the interdisciplinary doctoral program in SLA.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Second Language Acquisition studies,
(Applied) Linguistics or a related field by the starting date of the
appointment. The salary offered is commensurate with qualifications
and experience. The starting date is August 21, 2001.

To ensure full consideration, please send c.v., three letters of
recommendation, sample publications and/or dissertation chapter, and
evidence of excellence in teaching by December 1, 2000 to:

 Dr. Fred Davidson, Chair, Search Committee
