The Department of Linguistics at Northwestern University seeks to fill a
tenure-line Assistant Professor position with a start date of September 1,
2013. We are looking for candidates with primary research and teaching
interests in morphology, syntax, or semantics, and their interfaces with
other areas of linguistics.

Candidates with demonstrated research and teaching strengths in one or more
of following areas are especially encouraged to apply:
- Language variation and change in individuals or linguistic communities;
- First or second language acquisition;
- Natural language processing.

The ideal candidate will also possess language breadth and methodological
versatility, and will have analyzed experimental data, field data, or
natural language corpora in order to address theoretical issues. Preference
will be given to those applicants who will contribute to the department's
active role in interdisciplinary research and teaching initiatives.
Although we expect to hire at the rank of Assistant Professor, more senior
candidates will also be considered.

Candidates must hold a PhD in Linguistics, Psychology, Computer Science, or
a related field by the start date. To receive fullest consideration,
