with the Linguistics Program seeks to recruit a tenure-track assistant

The appointment (in the English Department) will involve teaching
undergraduate and graduate linguistics courses, plus thesis and
dissertation supervision. The successful candidate will demonstrate a
commitment both to a fundable research program and to excellence in
teaching, and will have the Ph.D. at the time of appointment.

Stanley Dubinsky

English Department
University of South Carolina

Additional information about the Linguistics Program and the
Department of English Language and Literature is available at
http://www.cla.sc.edu/ling and http://www.cla.sc.edu/engl.

Screening of applicants will begin November 15, to continue until the
position is filled. We anticipate conducting interviews at the
January 2003 LSA Meeting. AA/EEO. Minorities and women are
encouraged to apply.

The USC Linguistics Program, with faculty in five academic departments
in the College of Liberal Arts, supports a graduate program (granting
the Ph.D. and M.A. in Linguistics, and a TEFL Certificate) and an
undergraduate minor. We currently have about 40 active students in
the graduate program, and were ranked 7th among linguistics doctoral
programs in the 2000 National Doctoral Program Survey conducted by the
National Association of Graduate-Professional Students
(http://survey.nagps.org/index.php). The program's dual emphasis on
theoretical and applied aspects of linguistics is one of its major
strengths, and the great variety of research conducted by faculty and
graduate students is a reflection of the intellectual diversity that
characterizes the program. For more information about the program,
prospective applicants are invited to explore the our website:
