Position in Linguistics in the Department of Anthropology at
Vanderbilt University

Vanderbilt University announces a position in linguistics in the

well as the candidate's theoretical specialization.

The successful applicant will join a research-oriented department of
anthropology focused on Latin America with an outstanding, well-funded
doctoral program, and participate in a linguistics program that
includes departments in the languages, the humanities, and the social
sciences. Vanderbilt rewards excellence in teaching and research with
competitive salaries, excellent benefits, opportunities for research
funds, and a high quality of life in the area.

We urge a rapid response, in advance of our preferential deadline of
December 15, 2003 to insure a full review of application materials.
