Assistant Professor of Linguistics
Rice University

The Department of Linguistics, Rice University, is seeking to fill a
tenure-track position in linguistics at the level of assistant
professor beginning fall, 1999. The Ph.D. is required.

We are seeking a person who has multiple capabilities. First, we
desire someone whose primary focus is the social contextualization of
language. The candidate should have an interest in teaching
undergraduate and graduate courses on language & society and
sociolinguistics. We also expect the successful candidate to share the
orientation of the Department of Linguistics, which takes an
integrative approach to language that is sensitive to functional and
cognitive concerns. Fieldwork on a non-Indo-European language and an
interest in language description and diachrony are pluses. Possible
areas of expertise include sociolinguistics, pidgin and creole
linguistics, and (con)textual analysis. We anticipate that the new
faculty will interact with other programs such as Cognitive Sciences,
Anthropology, Sociology, and the Center for the Study of Languages.

Rice University is a private, selective institution with undergraduate
and graduate strengths in science, engineering, the social sciences
and the humanities. Rice places strong emphasis on research and
excellence in classroom teaching. The normal course load is six hours
per semester.

Interviews will be held in January, 1999 at the LSA meeting in Los
Angeles. For full consideration, applications including cover letter,
CV, three names of references, and a representative writing sample
must be received by November 15, 1998. Reply to: Faculty Search,
