Subject: Phonologist for wits university

The following post, previously advertised here as 'pending approval'
is now confirmed. Please note that applications received after 28
February will not be considered and that the postal service usually
takes 2 weeks to deliver international mail here. I therefore
suggest that applicants use an express delivery service. Although
the ad doesn't mention this, ability to teach cognitive
science/psycholinguistics at the introductory level would recommend
a candidate. Address any e-mail queries about this position to me,
but address applications to the Head, as below.
