			UNIVERSITY OF OREGON
		 POSSIBLE TENURE-TRACK POSITION

The Department of Linguistics at the University of Oregon announces
that a regular tenure-line position may become available, pending
budgetary approval, beginning Fall 1997. The position is advertised
at the Assistant or early Associate Professor level. Salary will be
dependent on qualifications and experience.

We invite applications from qualified individuals in empirical
descriptive linguistics or psycholinguistics. Candidates must have
completed the Ph.D. degree by the time of appointment. An excellent
record of research and publication is a must, as well as evidence of
excellence in classroom teaching.

Relative to empirical descriptive linguistics, we seek a candidate
with strong grounding in the functional approach to morphosyntax and
discourse, field work with non-European languages, and
cross-linguistic grammatical typology.

Relative to psycholinguistics, we seek a candidate with strong
grounding in functional approaches to grammar and discourse,
experimental cognitive psychology, cognitive science, empirical
quantitative methods (experimental, text-based, etc.), and language
processing.

The successful candidate in either area will, in his or her work, be
able to contribute to several foci within the Department. We enjoy a
long tradition of work within the functionalist and typological
tradition, with major concentrations in descriptive field work,
experimental linguistics, second language acquisition and teaching,
and cognitive science.

Please submit a letter of application which includes a statement of
research interests, vitae, sample publications, and have three letters
of reference sent to:

	Search Committee
	Department of Linguistics
	University of Oregon
	Eugene, Oregon 97403

Review of applications will begin on January 6, 1997, and will
continue until position is filled.
