disciplines such as anthropology, sociology, or cognitive science, as
well as linguistics, and who can interact with colleagues and students
in interdisciplinary programs at UCSB such as Language, Interaction,
and Social Organization (LISO) and Cognitive Science. Candidates
should have demonstrated excellence in teaching, and will be expected
to teach a range of courses at graduate and undergraduate levels,
including courses in linguistic anthropology and
sociolinguistics. Ph.D. normally required by the time of appointment.
Applicants should submit curriculum vitae, statement of research
interests, 1-2 samples of published work, and full contact information
for three academic references to the Search Committee, Linguistics
Department, UCSB, Santa Barbara, CA 93106. Inquiries may be addressed
to the above address or via email to lingsearchlinguistics.ucsb.edu.
Completed applications should be received by November 15, 2001 for
primary consideration; however, the position will remain open until
filled. Preliminary interviews will be conducted at the annual
meetings of the American Anthropological Association and the
Linguistic Society of America, although attendance is not required for
consideration. Our department has a genuine commitment to diversity;
members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to
apply. UCSB is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
