Message 2: English Linguistics position in Lille, France

Date: Wed, 28 Aug 1996 13:48:07 BST
From: Philip H. Miller <pmillerulb.ac.be>
Subject: English Linguistics position in Lille, France

The department of English at the University of Lille 3, France, will
be seeking to fill a position of Professor of English Linguistics
starting in September 1997. The official application process will
begin in December 1996 or January 1997. This is a senior, tenured
position. Teaching duties (about 6 hours per week, 28 weeks per year)
will include some undergraduate courses, graduate level courses
(maitrise, DEA) and preparation to the English linguistics exam of the
French national "agregation" diploma.

The department is seeking a candidate with proven excellence in
research and university teaching of English Linguistics. The candidate
is not expected to teach English language classes at any level, but is
expected to be able to take into account the special needs of
non-native speakers. Moreover, we expect candidates who are not
familiar with the nongenerative frameworks currently in use in France
to gain sufficient understanding of these frameworks to be able to
situate their research with respect to them and to take into account
the familiarity of students with these frameworks.

Areas of specialization are open, but the department would be
especially interested in candidates working on syntax and semantics,
pragmatics, diachronic and synchronic variation.

Lille 3 has a very good local linguistics research environment
including the CNRS funded research group SILEX (Syntaxe,
Interpretation, Lexique). 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 teaching can be done in
English.

Please write to Philip Miller (pmillerulb.ac.be) for more information
on the nature of the position, the research environment, and the
application procedure.
