Rank of Job: Full Professor
Specialty Areas: Endangered Languages


The Department of Linguistics at the University of Utah invites
applications for a position at the rank of Professor to develop, seek
external funds for, and direct a proposed center for endangered
languages with an emphasis on Western North America. Tenure at the
time of appointment is possible. The position begins 1 July 2004.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in a relevant field, an outstanding
research record on endangered languages of the Americas, and the
proven ability to attract external funding and head a research team.
Ability to teach introductory phonology would be a plus.

The Department of Linguistics has strong undergraduate and graduate
programs in theoretical and applied linguistics. We expect that the
proposed center will enhance both of these ares of strength by
engaging in basic research on indigenous languages as well as
developing maintenance and revitalization projects in cooperation with
regional tribal communities. (Please see the Department website at for further information about us.)
We also expect that the proposed center will foster interdisciplinary
activity among campus groups such as the Inter-tribal Student
Association, American Indian Studies, and the Center for the Study of
Race and Diversity in Higher Education.
