Subject: Jobs at UC San Diego
As the jobs announcement sent out by our department recently had a
somewhat misleading subject header, perhaps creating the impression
that only one position (namely that of director of the Basic Language
Program) was available, I thought that I would send out the following
The Linguistics Department at UC San Diego is looking to fill *three*
positions this year:
 1) director of the Basic Language Program;
 2) a theoretical linguist with a specialization in syntax
 and/or formal semantics; and
 3) a specialist in functional and/or cognitive linguistics.
The announcement for the latter two positions (which followed the
announcement for the first position in the previous message) is
appended in its entirety.
 The Department of Linguistics at the University of Califor-
 nia,	San Diego has two tenure-track openings at the Assis-
 tant Professor level beginning September 1992. One position
 is for a theoretical linguist with a specialization in syn-
 tax and/or formal semantics, and the other for a specialist
 in functional and/or cognitive linguistics. For either
 position, desirable qualifications include a strong language
 background, a serious interest in morphology, and familiar-
 ity with multiple theoretical frameworks.	A linguistics
 Ph.D. is required. The annual salary for an Assistant Pro-
 fessor is $35,900-$45,600.
