Subject: Teach English in China

I am currently directing a Teach-in-China Program to assist those in
the U.S. and elsewhere interested in teaching English in China/Taiwan
to locate positions there. Over the years, we have placed many
candidates of our program in teaching positions at various
universities and private schools in China. If you would like to
experience Chinese culture and teach English in China (or Taiwan),
please contact me at email: or tel/fax: 201-432-6861.
If you are a native speaker, have a bachelor's degree, good references
and are committed to teaching, we guarantee placement. If you would
like to talk to people that we have helped locate positions, which I
urge you to, I would be happy to provide you with a list.

(1) First, I'd like to remind you that you can find information on the
mew professorship in phonology at

Please forward this information to any excellent phonologist you know

(2) There will be vacant positions on the BAT IIa level (East German
style of payment, though) for a syntactician and a psycholinguistl In
total, I have money for 1 1/2 positions, and it depends on the
specific profile of the persons to be hired how this will be
distributed between syntax & psycholinguistics.

If you want a full position, you must have a doctoral degree.

Both positions are available from Sept. 1 on, they belong to the
"Innovationskolleg" (Center of Excellence) "Formal Models of Cognitive
Complexity". The project terminates Sept. 1st 1999, but if the project
remains a success, I'll apply for a prolongation in half a year, and
-as I have said- if the research project remains successful, there is
a good chance we get this prolongation.

The syntactician should be familiar with the minimalist program and
not be too afraid of OT- and have some interest & knowledge of

The psycholinguist should have experience/interest in experimental
work (reading time studies etc) concerning syntax processing.

Send your application FOR THESE TWO POSITIONS (NOT PHONOLOGY), via
e-mail or snailmail, directly to the director of the Innovationskolleg
- this is me:
