Message 1: Senior Position in Semantics at UCONN

Subject: Senior Position in Semantics at UCONN

The Department of Linguistics at the University of Connecticut
anticipates a tenured position in Semantics to begin in the fall
semester of 1998 (salary negotiable). We hope to hire at the Full
Professor level, but highly qualified candidates at the Associate
Professor level will also be considered. We are interested in
candidates with specialization in formal semantics and the
syntax/semantics interface within Generative Grammar. Applicants
whose research interests interact well with those of the current
faculty are especially sought. Applicants should be prepared to
teach in the area of their specialization at the graduate level,
as well as more general linguistics courses at the undergraduate
level, including 'Language and Mind' and 'Principles of Linguistics.'
An applicant's ability to teach in more than one area will weigh in
our decision.

Applicants should send a complete dossier (letter of application,
curriculum vitae, samples of work in progress or published,
description of courses prepared to teach, and teaching evaluations
if available) and at least three letters of recommendation to:

Howard Lasnik, Chair
Semantics Search Committee
University of Connecticut
Department of Linguistics, U-145
341 Mansfield Road, Room 230
Storrs, CT 06269-1145

phone: (860) 486-4229
fax: (860) 486-0197

Applications received by December 1, 1997 will be given preference
in the screening process. Applications will be accepted until the
position is filled.

The University of Connecticut is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative
Action Employer. We encourage applications from under-represented
groups, including minorities, women, and people with disabilities.
