Chair of English Language
The University of Aarhus, Denmark, invites applications for a chair
in the Description of Modern English, tenable from December 1, 1995,
or as soon as possible thereafter.
 The aim of the chair is to develop and strengthen the language
research profile of the Department of English. Considerable
international-standard original research in the description of modern
English is required, and experience with management of research
projects will be an advantage. Candidates must also have extensive
teaching experience at university level in the different language
disciplines taught at the department. Other things being equal,
candidates who are proficient in Danish will be preferred.
 Active involvement in all aspects of the work at the department
will be required. Candidates who do not speak Danish will therefore
be expected to learn enough Danish to be able to take part in the
full work of the department within one year. Both men and women are
encouraged to apply.

complete with all bibliographical information. Please indicate

(theses, publications, etc.) as indicated on list (b);
 (d) copies of academic diplomas, documentation of teaching
experience, and documentation of Danish language proficiency if
relevant.

The selection committee reserves the right to request further material
for consideration. Material sent on computer discs will not be
