Subject: Sociolinguistics; Asst Prof at Georgetown

Georgetown University Department of Linguistics is pleased to announce a
tenure track position at the Assistant Professor level in the
Sociolinguistics program.

Our primary interest is a candidate whose specialty is sociolinguistic
variation, especially as it relates to both language theory and social
life. However, we also encourage applications from sociolinguists with
other specializations, including (but not limited to) language contact and
change, computer mediated communication, language ideology, gender and
language, pidgins and creoles, developmental pragmatics, language and
social theory. The seven-member sociolinguistics program resides in a large
linguistics department involved mostly in graduate education, with
opportunities for reaching out to undergraduates.

Applicants should have a Ph.D., an active research program and evidence of
scholarly productivity, as well as demonstrated teaching ability.

Deadline for consideration of applications is December 1. Send letter of
application, curriculum vitae, representative publications, and names of
three references who may be contacted to:

Sociolinguistics Search Committee,
Linguistics Department
Georgetown University
Washington DC 20057

Applications from women and members of minority groups are encouraged.
Georgetown University is an AA/EO employer.
