Editor for this issue: Catherine Adams <catherinlinguistlist.org>


The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Description:

The Department of Linguistics at the University of California, Santa Cruz
announces the opening of
a one year full time position for the academic year 2007-2008. The successful
candidate will teach
four courses over three quarters, two of which will be graduate courses in
formal semantics. We
are therefore looking for someone with a strong research and teaching
specialization in formal
semantics and pragmatics. In addition, however, we are seeking a candidate who
will contribute in
significant ways to the department's existing strength in syntax. The campus is
especially
interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of
the academic
community through their research, teaching, and/or service.

Applicants should have a PhD degree in Linguistics, a primary specialization in
semantics and a
strong secondary specialization in syntax. The successful candidate will be
expected to contribute
equally to the undergraduate and graduate curricula and applicants should
therefore supply
evidence of experience and excellence in teaching, particularly at the
undergraduate level.

The department sponsors two undergraduate majors (Linguistics and Language
Studies) and offers
MA and PhD programs in theoretical linguistics focused on the core disciplines
of phonology,
syntax, and semantics. The teaching load associated with this position will be
four courses divided
among three quarters beginning in Fall 2007.

Further information about the department, its faculty, its students, and its
programs is available at
http://ling.ucsc.edu.
