Subject: Phonology at U of Pittsburg

The following announcement is being reposted at this time because we
have now been authorized to remove the qualification 'subject to
budgetary approval'.


The Department of Linguistics at the University of Pittsburgh
announces a tenure-track position in Phonology at the rank of
Assistant Professor, starting September 01, 1997.

In addition to a strong record of research in theoretical phonology,
the ideal candidate should also have experience in some related area
of linguistic research, e.g. acoustic phonetics, morphological theory,
or the syntax-phonology interface. Field experience, especially with
American Indian languages, would count in a candidate's favor. It is
essential that candidates be able to document ability to teach a
general introductory course, as well as an elementary course in at
least one other core area of Linguistics (e.g. acoustic phonetics,
syntax, morphology, or semantics). We expect the successful candidate
to be interested in and able to contribute strongly to development of
an undergraduate program in Linguistics.

Complete CVs, along with three letters of recommendation should be
sent to Prof. Richmond Thomason, Chair, Search Committee, Department
of Linguistics, 2816 CL, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA
15260. Please include phone numbers and email addresses.

The deadline for applications is December 01, 1996. We expect to
interview candidates who have passed initial screening at the LSA
meetings in Chicago, in January 1997.

Salary will be competitive.

The University of Pittsburgh is an Affirmative Action, Equal
Opportunity Employer.
