The Department of Linguistics at the University of Michigan invites
applications for a tenure-track assistant professor in sociolinguistics to
begin September 2007. Under exceptional circumstances senior candidates
may be considered. In keeping with the department's interdisciplinary
perspective, we especially encourage applications from candidates who are
committed to conducting innovative research that connects sociolinguistics
to other areas of the discipline. The ideal candidate will complement and
build on existing strengths within the department, and will be eager to
interact with students and faculty from the broader linguistic community
at the University of Michigan. A Ph.D. by the beginning of the appointment
is required.

Please include a letter of application, curriculum vitae, research and
teaching statements, one or more representative publications, and evidence
of teaching excellence. Please also arrange for three letters of
recommendation to be sent. (Senior candidates should instead provide names
of references.) Review of applications will begin November 1, 2006, and
will continue until an appointment is made. Women and minorities are
encouraged to apply. The University of Michigan is an equal
opportunity/affirmative action employer and is supportive of the needs of
dual career couples.
