Message 2: Asst. Professor: Sociolinguistics, Comparative

Date: Tue, 3 Nov 1998 15:07:41 +0900 (JST)
From: Jared Lubarsky <lubarskyapollo.jiu.ac.jp>
Subject: Asst. Professor: Sociolinguistics, Comparative

Josai Internationial University (Togane, Chiba Prefecture, Japan) is
seeking to make a tenure-track appointment on the Assistant Professor
level in Linguistics. The appointment is offered as of next April; it is
possible that the appointment could be deferred until September (our second
semester), but in any case, it should be filled within the 1999 academic
year. We prefer that applicants have the Ph.D. in hand, but will look at an
ABD who seems particularly likely to have the degree by the end of the
first year of the appointment. Applicants should have bilingual or
near-bilingual command of English and Japanese; the latter is, in
principle, the language of instruction at JIU.
 The normal work load at JIU is six courses; faculty members are
also expected to serve as student advisors, and on university committees.
Teachers are occasionally asked to carry an extra course or half-course,
and are paid additionally for that. The appointee in the position currently
on offer would be asked to teach one of his/her six as a service course in
the English language instruction program; two of the remaining five may be
seminars at the Junior and Senior level. A candidate somewhat further along
in his/her career (in terms of publications and teaching experience) may be
considered for appointment at the Associate Professor level, in which case
the appointee would have one or more courses in our Graduate program in
Comparative Cultures.
 Our search priorities are focused on specializations in
Sociolinguistics and/or Comparative Linguistics. A fairly high priority
would be the ability to teach on the undergraduate level in applications of
Linguistics (historical, semantic, descriptive, grammatic), to English. An
interest in the relation of Linguistics to Gender Studies would be a
welcome additional qualification.
 Credentials (letter of application, c.v., three letters of
recommendation, one writing sample in English and one in Japanese--no
longer than 25 pages each--and a self-addressed postcard for
acknowledgement of receipt) should be submitted by 12/10/98 to: Chair,
Personnel Committee, Department of Inter-Cultural Studies, Josai
International University, 1 Gumyo, Togane-shi, Chiba-ken, Japan 283-8555.
Representatives of the Personnel Committee will interview short-listed
candidates at the upcoming MLA meeting in San Francisco.

Josai International University is an equal opportunity / affirmative action
employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Founded in 1992,
the university has a specific commitment to scholarly interaction between
countries and disciplines. This focus is reflected in a distinguished
multi-national faculty, its Center for Inter-Cultural Studies and
Education, which conducts exchange programs and international conferences,
and its interdisciplinary M.A. and Ph.D. programs in Women's Studies (the
first in Japan) and Comparative Cultures. The university is located 70
kilometers outside of Tokyo. For further information about the university's
programs and location, see its web site at: http://www.jiu.ac.jp.
