Assistant Professor (tenure-track) position, beginning Fall 2004. The
Department of Linguistics at the University of California, Davis,
seeks a linguist specializing in second language acquisition and
development at the Assistant Professor level. We are looking for
someone with strong interests in language pedagogy and teacher
education. We are seeking a colleague who takes an approach to second
language development that recognizes the social contexts in which
languages develop as well as the forms languages take. Research
interests in one of the following areas are desirable: L2 assessment,
L2 reading and writing, bilingualism. As our graduate students do
research in second language development contexts that range from K-12
and university classrooms to community settings of various kinds, an
interest in multilingual/multicultural populations like those of
California is also desirable. The candidate should be able to teach
advanced courses in second language acquisition and development and
M.A.-level TESOL pedagogy, along with other graduate and undergraduate
courses as needed by the department. Our department currently offers
an MA with a general track and an applied (TESOL) track. A doctoral
program emphasizing second language acquisition and development is
currently in the approval process.

Candidates must show strong promise in both research and teaching, and
rapport with the interests of the department. To ensure full
consideration, applications must be postmarked by December 1, 2003,
though the position will remain open until filled. Send application
letter, sample publications and three letters of reference to Will
Benware and Vai Ramanathan, Co-Chairs, Search Committee, Department of
