The Department of Linguistics at Northwestern University has received
final authorization to fill a tenure-line 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

To receive fullest 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:
