Message 2: UCLA Jobs/Temporary (96-97)

The UCLA Department of Linguistics expects to have several short-term
jobs available teaching various courses next year. These are all
replacement positions, for faculty who are on leave. Some of the
courses that need to be taught are undergraduate classes, while others
are graduate classes. The courses to be taught are diverse, including
(a) several courses in syntax at ALL levels, (b) undergraduate
phonetics, and (c) a lower-division undergraduate course surveying
languages currently spoken in the United States. In addition, we MAY
be interested in having visitors teach (a) a survey course on African
langauges and (b) psycholinguistics.

Finally, we will be interested in having visitors teach (or co-teach)
advanced graduate courses in a variety of areas, including (but not
necessarily limited to) syntax, phonology, structure of a particular
language or language family, and formal language theory. For these
advanced graduate courses, we are primarily interested in hiring
relatively senior people with established reputations (e.g. people
who are on leave and who are interested in visiting UCLA), though more
junior applicants will also be considered.

Because we have an unusually large number of courses available for
visitors to teach next year (8 or 9), we are at present quite flexible
in terms of the type and level of appointments. In particular, we may
be interested in hiring some people for single-course lectureships
(paying in the neighborhood of $6,700 to $10,000 per course, depending
on seniority); we may also be interested in making full-time
appointments for periods of one or two terms, with a courseload of 2
courses per term, and pay levels per course roughly comparable to
those mentioned above. We may also consider making term appointments
with less than full-time teaching loads (e.g. teaching one course and
co-teaching another).

These visiting positions are not restricted as to rank. We are
especially interested in hiring faculty from other universities who
plan to be on leave during (part of) the coming academic year and who
may be interested in visiting our department for part of the year and
teaching a course (or two) while they are here. Scholars who have
recently completed their Ph.D.'s (or who will have done so prior to
coming to UCLA)

The courses that NEED to be taught in particular quarters include the

(Fall 1996: late September to mid-December)
Ling 103-- Undergrad Introduction to Phonetics
Ling 216-- Advanced Graduate Syntax: Binding and Logical Form

(Winter 1997 -- January-March)
Ling 127-- Undergrad Syntactic Typology

(Spring 1997 -- April-June) 

Ling 2-- Language in the United States(Survey of Languages Spoken in
the USA)
Ling 165B-- Advanced Undergrad Syntactic Theory

(Courses that MIGHT be taught by a visitor in any quarter, possibly in
addition to one of the above:)
Ling M115-- Survey of African Languages
Ling 120B-- Undergrad Intro to Syntactic Analysis
Ling 225-- Linguistic Structures (Phonology &/or Grammar of a Particular
 Language or Language Family
Ling 251-- Graduate Proseminar in Phonetics and Phonology 
	 (Current Research)
Ling 252-- Graduate Proseminar in Syntax and Semantics 
	 (Current Research)

Each course runs for ten weeks (with two 2-hour lectures per
week) followed by an exam week.

Applicants should send a letter of application, including a CV, a
statement of previous teaching experience, as well as the names,
addresses, and phone numbers of three recommenders to:

Tim Stowell (Chair), Department of Linguistics, UCLA, Los
Angeles, CA 90095-1543.

(Actual letters of recommendation should NOT be sent at this time;
likewise candidates should not send voluminous dossiers of
publications, etc.)

Applications for fall quarter courses should be received by May 22
1996, and applications for winter and spring quarter courses should be
received by June 3 1996, though late applications will also be
considered as long as the positions remain unfilled.

Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to inform us by e-mail,
as soon as possible, of their intention to apply for these positions.
Initial enquiries by email may be directed to Tim Stowell
( or to Anna Meyer (
