The Department of Linguistics at the University of Rochester invites
applications for a tenure track appointment as an assistant professor to
begin July 1, 2013. We seek candidates with a proven record of research in
formal pragmatics and semantics, a record of excellence in teaching, and
strong evidence of interest in interdisciplinary work. Applicants must have
a Ph.D. in hand before the appointment starts. Duties include teaching
established courses in the undergraduate and graduate curriculum and
working with graduate students in allied fields such as psycholinguistics
and computer science. Experience with primary data and fieldwork that would
complement current faculty interests is desirable.

Excellence in teaching is required, and breadth of teaching interest is
highly desirable. The Department of Linguistics is part of a larger active
interdisciplinary community consisting of faculty and students doing
research in cognitive science, philosophy, computer science, and
neuroscience. We seek candidates who are likely to further those
connections. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three letters of
recommendation, and teaching evaluations via the application URL below.
Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2012. We will be
interviewing at the LSA in January.

The University of Rochester, an Equal Opportunity Employer, has a
commitment to diversity and encourages applications from candidates from
groups underrepresented in higher education.

Application Deadline: 01-Dec-2012
