               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, 2002. The Ph.D.
is required.

        The Department offers degrees at the B.A. and at the
Ph.D. levels. The orientation of the Department is strongly
functionalist and usage-based.  The faculty adopts an
integrative approach that is sensitive to language in its
many contexts: discourse, social, cognitive, historical, etc.
We emphasize language description, typological generalizations,
functional explanations, and fieldwork experience.

         We expect the successful candidate to share the
orientation of the Department, to have an active research
program, and to have demonstrated excellence in teaching.
Preference will be given to those who (1) have research
experience in fieldwork on (a) non-Indo-European language(s),
(2) are comfortable teaching courses not only in their
area(s) of specialization, but also in phonology and/or
historical linguistics. The normal teaching load is two
courses per semester.

        Interviews will be held in January, 2002 at the
LSA meeting in San Francisco. For full consideration,
applications including cover letter, CV, three letters
of reference, and one representative article must be
received by November 15, 2001.
