There are two tenured and one non-tenure track positions
available. The non-tenure track position is envisioned as a first-time
position for an academic who is a native speaker of English, but does
not necessarily have to be competent in Japanese or have long history
of publications. The two tenured positions are meant for academics
who need not necessarily be native speakers of English, but must be
competent in Japanese. All CVs will be examined with equal fairness,
but there is currently no perceived need in the Department for a
fourth instructor of transformational grammar. There is, however,
currently no tenured member of the teaching staff specialising in
phonetics. Furthermore, although the department does have tenured
staff teaching Computer Linguistics, English Education, and Language
Culture, there is a perceived need for more staff in each of these

There is no discrimination according to sex, sexual orientation,
religion, race, or nationality, but, as the average age of the tenured
staff is quite high and in order to partially rectify this, it is
likely that at least one of the two tenured positions (and fairly
certain the non-tenure track position) will go to a candidate 40 or
younger. Individuals with a Ph.D, teaching experience, and
publications will be given preference. A final decision will be
reached by the end of July 2002 according to the perceived quality of
the academic backgrounds and publications of the applicants.
