opening of a non- tenure related Visiting Assistant Professor position for
the 1998-1999 academic year, potentially renewable pending funding,

within the functionalist tradition, concentrating in descriptive work and
field work and in empirical work on language use, discourse, and language

and graduate levels. The successful applicant must be able to help cover
our core curriculum, which includes phonetics, phonology,
functional-typological morphosyntax, semantics, and second language
acquisition and teaching. Additional specializations in discourse,
psycholinguistics, and/or historical syntax and grammaticalization will be
particularly attractive, depending on department needs.

In addition, the successful applicant must have an active research profile
and must be able to direct graduate student research. 

Qualifications: Ph.D. in Linguistics

Duties: Up to two courses per term of hire (we are on a quarter system)
