Jobs: Experimental Ling: Rank Open, U of Chicago, IL

Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.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.

open-rank search for a tenured or tenure-track position in linguistics with

applicants from all subfields of linguistics. Priority will be given to the

area of specialization within linguistics. The ideal candidate will have

which address scientific questions regarding knowledge and use of language.
S/he will have teaching responsibilities at both the graduate and the
undergraduate levels and will supervise student research in appropriate areas.

Cognitive Science with a demonstrated strong interest in questions of
significance to linguistics.

at the University of Chicago's Academic Career Opportunities website, for

candidates must submit hard copies of a CV, statements of research and
teaching, and up to three appropriate research papers; please supply a URL
with links for these items as well. Teaching evaluations should also be
submitted if available. Candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as
possible. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2009.

Candidates should arrange for three letters of reference to be sent
directly to the search committee at the address listed below. The
department expects to interview candidates at the Annual Meeting of the
Linguistic Society of America in Baltimore, January 7-10, 2010.
