Jobs: Phonetics, Speech Science: Asst/Assoc Prof, U of British Columbia

Editor for this issue: Luiza Newlin Lukowicz <luizalinguistlist.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.

The Department of Linguistics at the University of British Columbia invites
applications for a tenure-track position in Phonetics/Speech Science to
begin July 1, 2009, with appointment at the rank of either Assistant or
Associate Professor. The successful candidate should have a primary
specialization in Phonetics or Speech Science, with preferred emphasis in
acoustic phonetics and/or speech perception (to complement the Department's
existing experimental strengths in articulatory phonetics, speech science,
psycholinguistics, and first language acquisition). We especially encourage
applicants with research expertise in one or more of the following areas:
interfaces between phonetics/speech science and other domains of language
(semantics, syntax, morphology, phonology), linguistic fieldwork, less
well-studied languages (esp. First Nations (Amerindian) or African), or
language acquisition or processing. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in
linguistics or a related field (or be near completion) and are expected to
demonstrate potential for high quality research and enthusiastic teaching
of a variety of courses in phonetics and speech science at the graduate and
undergraduate levels. The successful candidate will be expected to maintain
an active program of research, teaching (including graduate supervision),
and service. The position is subject to final budgetary approval. Salary
will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Please send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, representative
samples of published or unpublished work, evidence of teaching
effectiveness, and any additional supporting documents to the address
below. In addition, applicants should arrange for three confidential
letters of recommendation to be sent (hardcopy) under separate cover to the
