Subject: Job: Open level replacement at Reed College

The Linguistics Program at Reed College invites applications for a
one-year replacement position in Linguistics for the academic year
1997-98. Reed College is a selective liberal arts institution with a
commitment to teaching excellence and scholarship. The appointee will
be responsible for a small but intense undergraduate linguistics
program which offers five semester courses over the academic year, at
least one of which is a general introduction to the field. The
position also involves supervising several yearlong senior honors
thesis projects. A Ph.D. and broad teaching and research experience
in various areas of linguistics are required. Because the linguistics
program is small, the person who occupies this position must establish
collaborative intellectual contacts with one or more faculty
colleagues in such related disciplines as anthropology, psychology,
philosophy, mathematics, cognitive science, languages, or literature.
Both the level of the appointment and the range of possible course
offerings are open and will depend on the successful applicant's
experience and areas of expertise. We especially encourage senior
scholars with interests in undergraduate education in linguistics to
apply. Please send a letter describing your teaching and scholarly
interests, a curriculum vitae, and the names of three academic
referees, to the Linguistics Search Committee, Reed College, 3203
S.E. Woodstock Blvd., Portland, OR 97202 by November 15, 1996. Reed
College is an equal opportunity employer.
