Northwestern University is seeking to hire a social scientist in the
area of Asian American Studies at the rank of assistant professor or
tenured associated professor. Asian American Studies is a new
interdisciplinary program with an undergraduate minor; its faculty
have appointments in disciplinary based departments. The Department
of Linguistics is one of five social science departments participating
in this search. We seek applicants with records of excellent research
and teaching to participate in expanding Northwestern's Asian American
Studies Program and in further developing its curriculum.

For an appointment in the Department of Linguistics, the successful
candidate will have a Ph.D. in Linguistics (or related field) with
expertise in the language(s) of Asian Americans and one or more of the
following areas: sociolinguistics, bilingualism, discourse/pragmatics.
There is considerable flexibility in course offerings, with
opportunities to teach at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
Preference will be given to candidates with a strong teaching record
and interdisciplinary research interests that mesh with those of the
current faculty.

To receive fullest consideration, applications should arrive by
November 20, 2001. Please submit 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 also arrange to have the letters
of reference sent directly to the search committee.

Northwestern University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
Employer, and applications from minority and women candidates are
especially welcome.
