language. The appointment will be tenure-track at the Assistant Professor

program in their area of specialization. Experience in social/cultural
research incorporating linguistic analysis of naturally occurring language
use is essential. We are especially interested in candidates whose research
shows theoretical implications for one or more related disciplines such as
anthropology, sociology, or cognitive science, as well as linguistics, and
who can interact with colleagues and students in interdisciplinary programs
at UCSB such as Language, Interaction, and Social Organization (LISO) and
Cognitive Science. Candidates should have demonstrated excellence in
teaching, and will be expected to teach a range of courses at graduate and
undergraduate levels, including courses in linguistic anthropology and
sociolinguistics. Ph.D. normally required by the time of appointment.
Applicants should submit curriculum vitae, statement of research interests,
1-2 samples of published work, and full contact information for three
academic references to the Search Committee, Linguistics Department, UCSB,
Santa Barbara, CA 93106. Inquiries may be addressed to the above address or
via email to lingsearch at linguistics.ucsb.edu. Completed applications should
be received by November 15, 2001 for primary consideration; however, the
position will remain open until filled. Preliminary interviews will be
conducted at the annual meetings of the American Anthropological
Association and the Linguistic Society of America, although attendance is
not required for consideration. Our department has a genuine commitment to
diversity; members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to
apply. UCSB is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
