Date: Fri, 03 May 1996 16:00:59 EDT
From: "Daniel L. Everett" <deververb.linguist.pitt.edu>
Subject: U. of Pittsburgh one-year
The Department of Linguistics of the University of Pittsburgh announces a
one-year position at the rank of Visiting Assitant Professor (for
candidates who will have earned the Ph.D. by Fall 1996) or Visiting
Instructor (for those who do not have the Ph.D. in hand by date of hire)
for the 1996-1997 academic year.

The candidate will be expected to teach two introductory courses in the
Fall term and three courses (one of these may be an advanced seminar in
the candidate's area of specialty) in the Spring term. If administrative
duties are assigned, there will be a compensatory course reduction,
depending on the scope of the duties. The candidate will be expected to
participate fully in the intellectual and academic life of the Department.

The preferred area of specialization is phonology. Field experience with
American Indian languages (South, North, or Meso) would also count in a
candidate's favor. Ability to teach introductory-level courses in more
than one major area of linguistics is also desirable.

It is hoped that this position will be filled by June 04, 1996.

Complete CVs with three letters of recommendation should be sent to Daniel
L. Everett, Chair, Department of Linguistics, 2816 CL, University of
Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA 15260. Evidence of superior teaching ability
