 Logic position: The Department of Philosophy at Stanford University
 has an opening for an Assistant Professor, three-year term, beginning
 September 2002.  Candidates must have a Ph. D. with specialization in
 logic by the start of the appointment; while the degree need not be in
 philosophy, candidates should have a genuine interest in that subject
 and be prepared to interact with philosophers in a serious way.
 Experience with philosophical aspects of logic and/or uses of logic in
 other fields preferred, but applications are welcomed from all
 qualified candidates.  The department has teaching needs at the upper
 division undergraduate level in logic; in particular it needs someone
 who will do an outstanding job at teaching the course in first order
 logic following the well-known text by H. Enderton, especially someone
 who will be able to reach the diverse audiences (including students
 from philosophy, mathematics, linguistics, cognitive science, and
 computer science) that that course serves.

 Details of the position: Salary competitive.  Teaching load, 5 quarter
 courses/year (three quarter system), reduction to 4 courses in the
 third year.  Includes advanced undergraduate courses and opportunity
 to teach one graduate course or seminar each year.

 Applications: Candidates should submit a CV, a cover letter describing
 teaching experience as well as research interests and accomplishments,
 at least three confidential letters of recommendation, and evidence of
 exceptional teaching ability.  Send materials to Prof.  Solomon
 Feferman, Chair, Logic Search Committee, Dept. of Philosophy, Stanford
 University, Stanford, CA 94305-2155.  Application deadline, December
 1, 2001.  Stanford is an AA/EOC employer.
