Lecturer Position for TESL English Phonetics/Phonology Course

The Center for Graduate and Continuing Education at Mary Washington College
is soliciting applications to teach one course of Applied
Phonetics/Phonology for its new graduate-level TESL Certificate Program.
The course will meet once per week in the Fall Semester of 1998. The time
has not been scheduled but it will be during the evening (or possibly
during the day on the weekend), starting in the fall (date flexible). 
The course will be offered, pending sufficient enrollment. Since this is
a new program, opportunities exist to teach other courses in the future.

Prospective candidates should have at least a master's degree in
Linguistics, TESL, or related field; ABD or Ph.D. preferred. Successful
candidates should have not only the prerequisite background knowledge,
but will also have the capability to connect English phonetics and
phonology with applications to the ESL classroom. Some ESL or EFL
experience is a plus.

Interested candidates should send (1) a cover letter; (2) a CV;
(3) some documentation of relevant teaching experience (such as student
evaluations of teaching). These materials should be received by August 7,
1998 at the address listed below.

Mary Washington College is located in Fredericksburg, Virginia, about an
hour's drive south of Washington, off exit 130A of I-95.
