University of California Berkeley (CA) - TT Assistant Professor - Historical Linguistics or Language in Social Context - Deadline: 17 Nov. 2017Edit
The Department of Linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley, has been authorized to make one appointment in either historical linguistics or language in social context. This position will be at the rank of assistant professor (tenure-track). Salary will be commensurate with experience. Duties will include undergraduate and graduate advising, teaching (up to four courses per year), supervision of student research, and development of a successful and original research program. The PhD (or equivalent degree) is required by the start date of the appointment; all degree requirements other than the dissertation must be complete at the time of application.
Applicants must have a broad intellectual engagement in linguistics and a research specialization in either historical linguistics or language in social context. A research specialization in historical linguistics might address language change, contact, diversification, or spread; linguistic reconstruction; or relations between linguistic prehistory and human prehistory generally. A research specialization in language in social context might address social variation; bilingualism; language contact; language ideologies; social pragmatics; or language attrition, endangerment, or revitalization. Applicants should also ideally have research interests or skills that intersect with a neighboring area (e.g. anthropology or archaeology, cognitive science, computational or statistical modeling, corpus or experimental linguistics, language documentation, linguistic theory, linguistic typology, or literary analysis), and that will contribute actively to the intellectual life of a broad linguistics community. Applicants must be able to teach general linguistics courses and courses at all levels in historical linguistics or language in social context, including seminars and research mentoring.
The Department of Linguistics and the University of California, Berkeley, recognize and value contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion (http://diversity.berkeley.edu/). We encourage applicants, in their cover letters and statements, to discuss how their research, teaching, service, and outreach activities will contribute to enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusiveness. We welcome applications from those who have had non-traditional career paths, have achieved excellence in careers outside academia, or have taken time off for family reasons.
Applications must include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a research statement, a statement of teaching experience and philosophy, and copies of representative written work (1 to 5 items may be submitted). Applications must contain evidence of teaching excellence or potential (included or summarized in the statement of teaching experience). Applicants must arrange for 2-5 (preferably at least 3) letters of recommendation to be submitted through the online application system. All letters will be treated as confidential according to University of California policy and California state law. Whether letters are submitted directly or provided via a third party (e.g. a dossier service or career center), please refer potential referees to the UC Berkeley statement of confidentiality (http://apo.berkeley.edu/evalltr.html) prior to submitting their letters.
Please submit all materials electronically at https://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/apply/JPF01499.
- The deadline for applications is November 17, 2017; no application materials will be accepted after that date.
