			 UNIVERSITY OF ESSEX

		DEPARTMENT OF LANGUAGE AND LINGUISTICS
				 
		 Research Studentships (2)
		 for PhD Research in Linguistics
			 at Essex
			 for 1998-2001

The Department of Language and Linguistics has two research
studentships available for the period 1998-2001. Both cover fees at
UK/EU rates, the first provides a full bursary, the second a partial
bursary.

Fees and Bursary PhD studentship (3 years)
- ----------------------------------------

Applications are invited from students anywhere in the world to pursue
doctoral research for up to three years. UK/European Union rate fees
will be paid by the University, and students will receive a bursary
from the department at research council rates. Non-UK/European Union
students will be liable for the reminder of the fees (current fee
difference is UKL 3,770). The value of the bursary is currently UKL
5,295 (subject to review). Holders of the bursary will be expected to
provide up to 6 hours of teaching per week or the equivalent
(e.g. research assistant duties).

Fees-and-Part Bursary PhD studentship (3 years)
- ---------------------------------------------

Applications are invited from students anywhere in the world to pursue
doctoral research for up to three years. UK/European Union rate fees
will be paid by the University, and students will receive a bursary
from the department of UKL 1,000. Non- UK/European Union students will
be liable for the reminder of the fees (current fee difference is UKL
3,770).


Students applying for either studentship should have a good first
degree (normally at least an Upper Second Class Honours or
equivalent), and be willing to investigate a topic compatible with the
research priorities of the department. Applications are particularly
welcome in the fields of language acquisition theory (first/second),
syntax, computational linguistics, psycholinguistics, sociolinguis-
tics, phonology, morphology. However, applicants should not be
discouraged from offering topics in other areas of linguistics.

Closing date: 31 March 1998

Applicants must have already applied for, and been offered a normal
place for doctoral study in the department before this closing date.

The department is a major centre for teaching and research in Theore-
tical and Applied Linguistics, with leading scholars in several
fields.

California State University, Fresno Academic Vacancy Announcement

THE SCHOOL OF ARTS AND HUMANITIES
Department of Linguistics

Position:	ASSISTANT PROFESSOR (TENURE-TRACK APPOINTMENT)

1.	Proposed Appointment: Tenure-track appointment.

2.	Available for the Academic Year: 1998-99.

3.	Salary: Placement on the salary schedule is dependent upon academic
 preparation and professional experience.

4.	Teaching Load: 12 semester units.

5.	Course Level: Graduate and Undergraduate. 

6.	Specific Position Characteristics: The position is primarily
 intended to strengthen the department's offerings in Applied
 Linguistics-TESOL. Thus, it is crucial that the successful candidate be
 capable of teaching both graduate and undergraduate courses in TESOL. 

Qualifications:

1.	Academic Preparation: Candidates with the Ph.D. or nearing completion
of the doctorate may be considered for the appointment.

2.	Teaching or Other Professional Experience: Preference will be given
to TESL candidates who have demonstrated excellence in teaching, as
evidenced both in the letters of recommendation and in teaching
evaluations. Strong preference will be given to candidates with some
teaching experience in TESL and the ability to teach courses that meet
the graduate needs of the department, which currently include a graduate
course in testing and evaluation, and various graduate courses in
methods and methodology as well as undergraduate courses in similar
areas, including in bilingualism. TESOL is a component of the
Linguistics Department and the strength of the program lies in its
ability to relate the knowledge of language to the teaching of
language. Thus, an additional requirement is the ability to teach
introductory level courses, such as the structure of language (Ling 10),
and the structure of English (Ling 134).
