 Assistant Professor of Linguistics

 Rice University

The Department of Linguistics, Rice University, is seeking to fill a
tenure- track position in linguistics at the level of assistant professor
beginning fall, 1999. The Ph.D. is required.

We are seeking a person who has multiple capabilities. First, we desire
someone whose primary focus is the social contextualization of language.
The candidate should have an interest in teaching undergraduate and
graduate courses on language & society and sociolinguistics. We also expect
the successful candidate to share the orientation of the Department of
Linguistics, which takes an integrative approach to language that is
sensitive to functional and cognitive concerns. Fieldwork on a
non-Indo-European language and an interest in language description and
diachrony are pluses. Possible areas of expertise include sociolinguistics,
pidgin and creole linguistics, and (con)textual analysis. We anticipate
that the new faculty will interact with other programs such as Cognitive
Sciences, Anthropology, Sociology, and the Center for the Study of

Rice University is a private, selective institution with undergraduate and
graduate strengths in science, engineering, the social sciences and the
humanities. Rice places strong emphasis on research and excellence in
classroom teaching. The normal course load is six hours per semester.

Interviews will be held in January, 1999 at the LSA meeting in Los Angeles.
For full consideration, applications including cover letter, CV, three
names of references, and a representative writing sample must be received
by November 15, 1998. Reply to: Faculty Search, Department of Linguistics
