Description:

Computational Modeling of Language Behavior From Cognitive / Neural
Perspectives

The University of Southern California, Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, in Los Angeles, California, invites applications for a position as Assistant or Associate Professor in the Departments of Psychology and/or Linguistics to start Fall 2013. We seek candidates engaged in novel research in the computational modeling of language behavior. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the modeling of language acquisition, comprehension, development, evolution, processing, production and variation. The research may be from neural or cognitive perspectives and with a strong link to empirical investigations. For an appointment at the level of Assistant Professor (tenure track), the appointment will be made in either the Department of Linguistics or the Department of Psychology. For an appointment at the level of Associate Professor (with tenure), a joint appointment between the two Departments is possible.

USC offers many opportunities for collaboration across these and other units of the university. Resources include the Dana and David Dornsife Cognitive Neuroscience Imaging Center, the Brain and Creativity Institute, the High-Performance Computing and Communications supercomputing cluster, and a broad interdisciplinary Neuroscience community, including a program in Hearing and Communication Neuroscience, composed of more than 70 faculty members in the basic, engineering, and clinical sciences. USC strongly values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity in employment. Women and men, and members of all racial and ethnic groups are encouraged to apply.

All applicants should have a Ph.D. at the time of appointment and should provide a CV, a research statement, a teaching statement, representative scholarly papers, and three letters of reference via email to Mr. Stephen Stephenson at the email address below. Screening of applicants will begin October 15, 2012. In order to be considered for this position, applicants are also required to submit an electronic USC application at the URL below.
