Two jobs in linguistics at Rice

My department will have two positions available next year. One is a post-doc position for a specialist in (child) language acquisition. The other is a one-year lectureship with open specialization. The ads are posted below. The original job announcements had two mistakes in them – electronic applications are no longer encouraged (please send us paper copies!) and a PhD is required by the start date, not the application date.

I will be one of the department reps at the LSA annual meeting in Anaheim. We will not be conducting formal interviews, but my colleague Nany Niedzielski and I will be available to answer any questions applicants might have about the position and the department.

The Department of Linguistics at Rice University is now accepting applications for a postdoctoral scholar in the field of child language
acquisition. This is a one-year position, renewable by mutual agreement for a second year.

Responsibilities of the position include teaching one course per semester and pursuing research. Position start date is July 1, 2007. A Ph.D. in Linguistics, Psychology, or other pertinent allied field, with primary specialization in child language acquisition, is required before the position start date.

We especially welcome applications from researchers who share the department’s interest in approaching language from a usage-based
perspective with solid empirical grounding in primary data, especially approaches of a cognitive, social-interactional, and/or functional
nature. See also our departmental web site at http://ling.rice.edu.

Although we will not be conducting formal interviews for this position at the LSA meeting in Anaheim, representatives of the department will be in attendance at the meeting and would be pleased to answer questions about the position or our department.

Application materials include: cover letter, research statement, sample of written work, past teaching evaluations (if available), and three
letters of reference.  Application deadline is Jan. 15, 2007.  Address for application materials:
