Subject: Jobs: General Linguistics: Rank Open, UCLA, CA, USA

University or Organization: UCLA
Department: Linguistics
Rank of Job: Rank Open
Specialty Areas: General Linguistics, Phonology, Syntax, Historical Linguistics


The UCLA Department of Linguistics expects to have several SHORT-TERM
jobs available teaching specific undergraduate courses during the
Winter (2005) and Spring (2005) quarters of the current academic year
(2004-05). The courses include Introduction to Linguistics (Ling 20),
Phonology I (Ling 120A), Syntax I (Ling 120B), and possibly Historical
Linguistics (Ling 110).

Because we have several courses available for visitors to teach, we
will consider making appointments that would involve teaching two or
more courses, either concurrently in a single quarter, or spread over
two quarters. Each course runs for ten weeks (with two 2-hour
lectures per week) followed by an exam week. Winter quarter classes
run from Jan. 6 through March 16 (with exams through March 23); Spring
quarter classes run from April 4 through June 10 (with exams through
June 17).

The pay scale per course will be in the range of $7,500 to $9,500,
depending on rank. (Although these visiting positions are not
restricted as to rank, budgetary considerations may restrict our
ability to hire at higher salary levels.) Visiting instructors should
have a Ph.D. and comparable teaching experience. We are especially
interested in hiring faculty from other universities who plan to be on
leave during (part of) the coming academic year and who may be
interested in visiting our department for part of the year and
teaching a course while they are here.

Positions are subject to final budgetary approval. UCLA is an Equal
Opportunity Employer. Women and minority candidates are encouraged to

Applicants should send a letter of application, including a CV, a
