University Lecturership in General Linguistics - University of Oxford

The University of Oxford, in association with Linacre College, advertises
a Lecturership in General Linguistics.
Applications are invited for this post tenable from 1 October 1994.
Stipend according to age on a scale from 13601 pounds sterling to
26803 pounds sterling per annum. The successful candidate may be
offered a (non-stipendiary) fellowship at Linacre College.
The initial period of appointment for a university lecturership is
five years, but after that the University Lecturer is eligible
for reappointment until retiring age.

The preferred areas of specialization are morphology, syntax or
semantic theory, possibly with reference to particular languages or
language families. The lecturer should be prepared to contribute
both to undergraduate teaching and to graduate teaching and supervision;
(s)he may be asked to give undergraduate lectures on major figures
and themes in twentieth-century linguistics and to provide introductory
courses in general linguistics. For the graduate courses students
are given a first term of intensive instruction in general linguistics
run jointly by all members of the linguistic staff and it is
expected that the lecturer will play a considerable role in these
courses and in the more specialized ones which follow.

A preprinted sheet of further written particulars containing details of
the duties and the full range of emoluments attaching to both the
university and the college posts as well as basic information about
linguistics at Oxford can be obtained from Mr R.J. Brooke, University
Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD, UK (tel. (0)865-270057,
fax (0)865-270708), to whom completed applications (8 copies, but one
only from overseas applicants) comprising a C.V. (containing a statement
of age, qualifications and experience), a list of publications,
examples of work, and the names and address of three referees, should
be sent by 7 March 1994. Referees should be asked to write directly
to Mr Brooke by that date.

Interviews for short-listed applicants will be held on 25 March 1994
and candidates will be informed of the results shortly after that.
They are likely to be invited to the interview at short notice
and the application should contain an indication of how they can
be reached by telephone, fax or e-mail between 7 March and 25 March.

 FOR CALL PROJECT 11,067 - 13,140

 A consortium of the Universities of Aston, Coventry and East Anglia
 has been awarded a substantial grant by the HEFCE under Phase Two of
 its Teaching and Learning Technology Programme to develop CAL
 materials for the study and acquisition of foreign language grammars -
 in the first instance French and German. Coventry University is now
 seeking to appoint a colleague as Research Assistant to work as a
 member of the Project team, which includes Research Assistants at
 Aston and East Anglia.

 We see the Project as having three stages, each lasting about a year,
 although so far we have only been promised funding for the first
 year). In stage 1 of this Project, we will be developing our learning
 model, setting up design parameters for the courseware we wish to
 produce, and evaluating the suitability for our purposes of extant
 CALL materials. Stage 2 would be devoted to producing, testing and
 refining pilot materials, and in stage 3 we would be putting the final
 polish to the courseware and running training and evaluation sessions
 with colleagues from other Universities and Colleges.

 The appointee to the Research Assistantship at Coventry will be
 responsible for programming the courseware. We are looking for
 candidates with a linguistic background, including a knowledge of
 French and/or German, and a strong programming background with the
 aptitude to develop authoring and programming skills in Toolbook and
 Visual Basic, in order to produce robust learning packages. Previous
 direct experience of Toolbook and Visual Basic is not essential,
