Subject: Linguistics at Durham, UK

The Department of Linguistics and English Language, University of
Durham, UK is pleased to announce the appointment of Prof. Anders
Holmberg to the Chair of Theoretical Linguistics, from 1st September
2001. We are grateful for the support we received from the linguistics
community when that position appeared under threat.

Along with its undergraduate offerings, the Department maintains a
thriving community of graduate students, both MA and PhD, and has a
strong track record of attracting research student support (ORS, ESRC
and AHRB awards). Applications from well qualified graduate students
are welcomed.

The department has particular strengths in syntactic theory,
phonological and morphological theory, language acquisition and
Germanic, Celtic, Romance and Finnic linguistics.
