Dear colleagues,

I am excited to announce the following linguistic anthropology position.
Note that it is one of THREE new tenure-lines in a new, exciting and growing
anthropology department.  Also, although rank is open, we are NOT
necessarily looking for a senior anthropologist-we are looking for the best
possible person of any rank to come into our four field program and excite
students about linguistic anthropology.  Please circulate this widely!
