The positions are associated with English, a subject which currently
enjoys twelve full-time positions, five in linguistics.

The successful applicants will participate in teaching and supervising
in English linguistics at all levels. Applicants must document
competence in research and teaching of English linguistics, [including
the projects and courses connected to CASTL (03/3066)].

The positions are advertised without restriction to any specific
specialty subfield [but the applicant's research profile should be
consistent with the research aims of CASTL (see above), and the
successful candidate is expected to contribute to the research goals
of CASTL (03/3066)].

The positions are 50% research and 50% teaching and administration. A
PhD is required at the time of appointment. Salary is standard by
Norwegian regulations.

Applicants will be evaluated by a qualified committee giving primary
consideration to the academic works submitted, but other important
qualifications include pedagogical skill, experience from
dissemination and popularization, administrative experience, etc.
Material which the applicants wish to be taken into consideration must
be submitted (postmarked) by the deadline (July 28th, 2003). Contact
information may be given for letters of reference.

The application must be submitted in two parts, the application proper
