The Department of Linguistics invites applications for 3 positions
as eight-month Visiting Assistant Professors in Linguistics.  The
ideal candidates would have specializations in one or more core
areas of linguistics (phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics),
active research programs and previous teaching experience.
Outstanding applicants with specializations in other areas (such as
psycholinguistics and child language acquisition) will also be
considered.  These 8-month positions will involve teaching at both
the graduate and undergraduate levels and may be re-newable for
1997-98 pending budget approval.  The current eight-month salary at
the University of Alberta is $25,000 Cdn plus travel expenses.

The Department of Linguistics at the University of Alberta has a
strong commitment to empirical and experimental approaches to
linguistic research.  Department members are engaged in ongoing
SSHRC-funded research projects in the study of the phonological,
morphological, and semantic aspects of the mental lexicon as well as
projects focusing on discourse processing and speech perception.
The successful candidates would therefore have the opportunity to
pursue their own scholarly activities within a collegial and
supportive research environment as well as to participate in
collaborative research projects.
