The Graduate School of Education, University of California, Berkeley,

	The Graduate School of Education, University of California,
Berkeley, seeks a specialist in the education of language minority
students with broad knowledge of the area of educational linguistics
for an associate professorship with tenure, pending budgetary
approval, to begin in July 1998. The individual selected for this
position will be affiliated with an interdisciplinary group focused on
language and literacy development and education, and would help that
group expand its work on the education of linguistic minority
students. Since language figures prominently in most areas of
education, that individual should be prepared to work with students
and faculty in other areas of schooling as well; for example, on
issues related to the role of language in mathematics and science
education; to cognitive and social development in bilingual children;
and language policy or testing in education. In particular, the
position will deal with linguistics issues in the education of
diverse language minority students, and with the preparation of
teachers to work with such students in American schools.

	Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in education,
linguistics, educational linguistics, applied linguistics, or a
closely related area, and should be able to demonstrate excellence in
research and teaching. Teaching and research experience in the
American public school system is highly desirable. Candidates should
be prepared to teach graduate level courses in research on language
teaching and learning, as well as teacher education courses with a
focus on bilingual issues and various school subjects (e.g., math,
science, reading and writing, social studies, etc.) to language
minority students (e.g., Latino, Asian, American Indian, etc.). In
addition, candidates should expect to play an active role in the
development of the School=B9s research and instructional programs, and
to collaborate with colleagues throughout the School in scholarly and
service activities.

	Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a statement of
interests and qualifications, the names and addresses of at least
three references, and one or more samples of published or unpublished
writings to:

Educational Linguistics Search Committee
Graduate School of Education
