 The new Dept. of Modern Languages (DML) at Cornell has a
tenure-track position to begin in August 1996 for an assistant
professor or beginning associate professor. The position is in
strong credentials in either CHINESE or JAPANESE. The subfield within
applied linguistics is open. Fluency in either Chinese or Japanese is
essential; an interest in other Asian languages is a plus, but not
necessary. The candidate will teach courses in applied linguistics
and will be expected to help develop new curriculum in this area. The
candidate will work with the faculty of the DML in governance of our
language programs in Asian languages, and will work with graduate
students in the doctoral program in linguistics (including students in
applied linguistics).

Previous experience in language teaching is essential, and experience
working with non-tenure track language teaching staff as well as
graduate teaching assistants is desirable. Strong credentials in
research and publications are also essential.

Send letter of application, CV and any supporting documentation, and
three letters of recommendation to: Linda Waugh, Chair, Department of
Modern Languages, Morrill Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York
14853. Materials received by early December will be given top
priority, but we would like to hear from interested candidates as soon
as possible. We expect to be conducting interviews at the MLA and
LSA. Cornell is an AA/EO Employer. Callean Hile Administrative Aide
