process requires candidates to file a first set of forms
before November 10 1999. One of these positions may be at the level

or less equivalent of assistant professor in the US; requires a
PhD, tenure track).

We are seeking candidates specializing in
-Phonetics and phonology of English (maitre de conference or professor level)
-English Linguistics (maitre de conference level)


Lille 3 has a very good local linguistics research environment
including the CNRS funded research group SILEX (Syntaxe,
Interpretation, Lexique) and a phonetics laboratory. Lille is also
one hour from Paris and two hours from London by high speed
train. Belgium and the Netherlands are also easy to get to by rail or
road.

Knowledge of French is necessary, though part of the teaching
can be done in English.

on the nature of the positions, the research environment, and the
application procedure.
