Job Announcement

Temporary Position in Semantics at UCLA

The UCLA Department of Linguistics solicits applications for a
one-year replacement position in Formal Semantics, during the coming
academic year (1998-99). (It is possible, though by no means certain,
that a permanent position will become open in 1999-2000.)

We are looking for someone to teach courses at the undergraduate and
graduate levels. Undergraduate courses would probably include an
introduction primarily to semantics and at least one additional course
in another area (for example, introduction to Linguistics, or
syntax). The graduate courses would include a survey course on
semantic theory and an advanced seminar course on current research.
Aside from teaching classes, the position would also involve advising
graduate students.

The rank of this position is open, though preference will be given to
candidates at the Assistant Professor level.

Candidates should send a CV, samples of work, and names and addresses
of three referees to:

 Tim Stowell, Chair,
 UCLA Department of Linguistics,
 Los Angeles, CA, 90095-1543

We will attempt to fill this position before the end of April 1998;
candidates whose applications are received prior to April 15 are
assured of the fullest consideration.

Because of the relatively late announcement of this position, and the
possibility of mail delays, it is highly recommended that applicants
send a brief e-mail message stating their interest in this position to

UCLA is an equal opportunity employer.
