Subject: Job in Education of Language Minority Students

ASSOCIATE PROFESSORSHIP

LANGUAGE EDUCATION AND LINGUISTIC

MINORITY STUDENTS


	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's 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samples of published or unpublished writings to:
