additional affiliations in one or more of the above-listed units).
Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in Linguistics, and should also
demonstrate strong ties to one or more of the above disciplines. In
addition to a strong commitment to research, this position will
involve teaching courses in linguistics at the graduate and
undergraduate levels. This position is subject to final budgetary
