University of California, Santa Barbara. The UCSB Linguistics
Department seeks to hire a specialist in social and/or cultural
approaches to language. The appointment will be tenure-track at the
Assistant Professor level, effective July 1, 2002.

Candidates should have an active research program in their area of
specialization. Experience in social/cultural research incorporating
linguistic analysis of naturally occurring language use is
essential. We are especially interested in candidates whose research
shows theoretical implications for one or more related disciplines
such as anthropology, sociology, or cognitive science, as well as
linguistics, and who can interact with colleagues and students in
interdisciplinary programs at UCSB such as Language, Interaction, and
Social Organization (LISO) and Cognitive Science. Candidates should
have demonstrated excellence in teaching, and will be expected to
teach a range of courses at graduate and undergraduate levels,
including courses in linguistic anthropology and
sociolinguistics. Ph.D. normally required by the time of appointment.

Applicants should submit curriculum vitae, statement of research
interests, 1-2 samples of published work, and full contact information
for three academic references to the Search Committee, Linguistics
Department, UCSB, Santa Barbara, CA 93106. Inquiries may be addressed
to the above address or via email to
lingsearchlinguistics.ucsb.edu. Completed applications should be
received by November 15, 2001 for primary consideration; however, the
position will remain open until filled. Preliminary interviews will be
conducted at the annual meetings of the American Anthropological
Association and the Linguistic Society of America, although attendance
is not required for consideration.

Our department has a genuine commitment to diversity; members of
underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply. UCSB is an
Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
