 Visitor Position Announcement

 at the
Theoretical Linguistics Department of the Lorand Eotvos University (ELTE),
 Budapest, Hungary

The Theoretical Linguistics Department of the Lorand Eotvos University
(ELTE) in Budapest, Hungary expects to have money to support a
visiting professor for the Spring term (February through June) 1994.
At this point it is impossible to say how much money will be
available, but in the past we have had 10,000 USD for this position.

The position is ideally suited for linguists on sabbatical and who
would like to work with members of the department in Budapest.
However, all applications will be considered.

The visitor will be expected to teach two courses (each 1.5 hours per
week) to undergraduate students. Any area of theoretical linguistics
is welcome, but to better integrate the visitor into our curriculum we
ask applicants to list what courses (with very brief descriptions)
they would be willing to teach. We are especially interested in
those who could provide our students with knowledge otherwise not
accessible to them. Balancing this concern is the desideratum that
the visitor will be able to work with our permanent staff.

The permanent staff of the department includes Zoltan Banreti, Michael
Brody, Katalin E. Kiss, Laszlo Kalman, Ferenc Kiefer, Andras Komlosy
and Miklos Torkenczy. In addition, there are a number of individuals
who, although not full time members of the Theoretical Linguistics
Department, regularly teach in course and participate. These include
Miklos Kontra and Csaba Pleh, among others.

Electronic inquires and applications should be directed to
To apply send a CV and a list of courses you would be willing to teach


 Theoretical Linguistics Department
 HAS Linguistics Research Institute
 PO Box 19
 H-1250 Budapest

We would like all applications to be in by September 1, 1994.

Even if you yourself are not interested, please pass this notice on to
others who may be.
