 Position Announcement

 The Department of Linguistics at the University of
Connecticut anticipates two positions. Position 1 is a
temporary position for the spring semester of 1995 (January
1 - June 30). Appointment for this position is anticipated
at the Assistant Professor level. Position 2 is a tenure
track position beginning in the fall semester of 1995.
Appointment is anticipated preferably at the
Assistant/Associate Professor level, but outstanding
candidates at a higher level will be considered. Salary is
negotiable. For both positions, we are interested in
candidates in three main areas of linguistics:
psycholinguistics (including language acquisition and/or
sentence processing); semantics; or morphology/phonology.
Applicants whose research interests interact well with those
of the current faculty are especially sought. Applicants
should be prepared to teach in the area of their
specialization at the graduate level, as well as more
general linguistics courses at the undergraduate level. An
applicant's ability to teach in more than one area will
weigh in our decision.

Applicants should send a complete dossier (letter of
application, curriculum vitae, samples of work in progress
or published) and at least three letters of recommendation
