Jobs: Syntax: Asst Prof, Georgetown University

Editor for this issue: Bethany Townsend <bethanylinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Job Rank: Assistant Professor

Specialty Areas: Syntax


The Department of Linguistics at Georgetown University is pleased to
solicit applications for an Tenure Track Assistant Professor in syntax with
an anticipated start date of Fall 2009. The successful candidate will have
demonstrated a strong research agenda in syntactic theory, preferably
dealing with the interface between syntax and another area of grammar, such
as phonology, morphology, semantics, or pragmatics. In addition, we value
highly the ability to relate syntactic theory to other important areas in
linguistics, such as acquisition, computational linguistics, language
change, or typology.

Teaching responsibilities will be 2-2, and involve courses at all levels:
undergraduate, beginning graduate, and research seminars. The person who
fills this position should expect to advise Masters and PhD students, to
work closely with existing faculty in syntax and related areas, and to take
on a position of leadership in the Theoretical Linguistics concentration
within the department.

Georgetown's Linguistics Department is one of the nation's most diverse,
with faculty interests spanning a wide range of approaches to language.
For more information on the department, see the website listed above.

Please send at least the following materials (hard copies only - no
electronic submissions):

- a cover letter, including summaries of teaching experience and of
research interests
- a CV
- three sample publications
- three letters of reference, sent directly by the referees.

Applicants should indicate whether they will attend the LSA annual meeting in January.

Georgetown University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
Women, minorities, veterans, and individuals with disabilities are
encouraged to apply.
