Message 4: visiting position at Carleton College

Date: Thu, 05 Dec 1996 08:16:21 CST
From: Mike Flynn <mjflynncarleton.edu>
Subject: visiting position at Carleton College



Carleton College wishes to appoint a Distinguished Visiting Professor of
Linguistics for the winter and spring terms, 1998 (January 5 to June 3,
two-thirds of an academic year). Rank is open, though preference will be
given to those already holding senior appointments.

Carleton is a highly selective liberal arts college located in Northfield,
Minnesota, which is about an hour's drive south of the Twin Cities of
Minneapolis and St. Paul. We have a small but exuberant Linguistics
Program, which enjoys the cooperation and assistance of faculty in related
departments including Asian Languages, Mathematics and Computer Science,
Philosophy, Psychology, and English.

Over the two terms at Carleton, the visitor will teach two advanced level
courses for linguistics majors (one course each term). These courses are
likely to have relatively small enrollments of five to ten very highly
motivated students. We wish to have a course on semantics (with a
prerequisite in formal logic) taught in the winter term. In the spring, the
visitor is invited to choose a course on some topic or another in either
syntax or phonology. Also in the winter term, we would like the visitor to
teach an entry level course on some mutually agreed upon topic. Enrollment
in this course is likely to be around twenty. In the spring term, we invite
the visitor to lead a small faculty reading group in some area in which the
visitor has special expertise.

Salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Please send a curriculum vitae and cover letter only to the following
address:

Michael Flynn
Linguistics Program
Carleton College
Northfield, MN 55057
USA

Inquiries and expressions of preliminary interest are welcome to Michael
Flynn at mjflynncarleton.edu. Carleton College is an affirmative
action/equal opportunity employer, and we particularly encourage
applications from qualified women and minorities.
