The Linguistics Department at the University of the Witwatersrand,
Johannesburg, South Africa, has a vacant post for a Lecturer in
SEMANTICS and PRAGMATICS with secondary interest in COGNITIVE
SCIENCE. The successful candidate will have proven teaching
experience and a research interest in Semantics and Pragmatics. If
the PhD has not been awarded, the thesis should be well under way and
near submission.

In addition to mainly undergraduate teaching, staff members are
expected to conduct scholarly research and to contribute to the
academic community as a whole.

The starting date of the appointment is hoped to be 1st July 1997,
but if this is not feasible, a slightly later date may be
negotiated. The closing date for applications is 30 April 1997.

The Linguistics Department has a strong tradition of research in
Khoisan and Bantu languages and the Department has a history of co-
operation with the Department of African Languages at the
University. Therefore a candidate's interest in African languages,
although not necessary, will be considered an asset to any

A Lecturer's salary ranges from R53,772 to R86,880. Benefits for
staff and their families include transportation to Johannesburg and
moving expenses, a settling-in allowance, medical aid, pension,
annual bonus, generous leave, funds for research, and so forth.

The University of the Witwatersrand seeks to serve South Africa by
furthering access to equal opportunity while striving for excellence
in teaching, learning, and research. We therefore encourage
applications from a wide range of backgrounds.
