Subject: Phonology


The Department of Linguistics at Northwestern University anticipates
the opening of a new tenure-track position in phonology beginning
September 1, 1993. [While we anticipate making an appointment at the
rank of Assistant Professor, an appointment at a higher rank will also
be considered.]

Candidates must hold a Ph.D in linguistics or a related field by the
starting date of the position. We are seeking candidates with a primary
specialization in phonology as well as additional expertise in one or
more of the following areas: morphology, language typology, language
change, language acquisition, and computational linguistics. Preference
will be given to candidates with publications beyond the dissertation
and/or teaching experience of demonstrably high quality.

Salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications.

Applications are due at Northwestern by JANUARY 22, 1993. The application
should include the candidate's CV, a brief statement of current and
projected research, teaching evaluations (if available), and three
letters of reference. Send materials to:

		Phonology Search Committee
		Dept. of Linguistics
		Northwestern University
		2016 Sheridan Road
		Evanston, IL 60208-4090

Prof. Janet Pierrehumbert will be available at the XVth International
Congress of Linguists in Quebec (9-14 August, 1992) to discuss the
position and answer questions. A departmental representative will also
be available at the LSA Annual Meeting in Los Angeles (7-10 January, 1993).

Northwestern is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer, and
applications from minority and women candidates are especially welcome.
Hiring is contingent upon eligibility to work in the United States.
